The latest rumors now are that Mini is planning to produce a smaller vehicle like the Rocketman to that they have a model that can go up against the Smart For Two.
Anders Warming, Head of Design for Mini told AutoExpress that Mini loves the idea of having a smaller vehicle, but can’t figure out how to make it.
The smaller model will need a different platform that they do not have right now. Warming said “At the moment, we don’t have the right tech solutions, but we are working on it. We don’t yet have a final solution, you could say,” he also added that they might go aluminium for the Rocketman production model.
If Mini can find away around this big problem, we will be seeing an even smaller Mini out on the road in a few years time.
