Have you ever wondered where your new MINI is born? Nowadays more than 200,000 MINI vehicles come to life at the iconic MINI plant in Oxford each year, with more than 80% of them being exported to begin their MINI adventure outside the UK.
Today MINI Plant Oxford is the beating heart of MINI production but during its 100-year plus history the plant has manufactured a vast range of vehicles under the Morris and Austin marques, including the legendary classic Mini. The ingenious design of this much-loved little car inspired a generation of car manufacturers and paved the way for its modern day equivalent, which first rolled off the production line in April 2001.
The modern MINI story has been a runaway success with the plant celebrating the production of its 3 millionth car in December 2016, just one out of almost 1,000 cars that are built each day by a team of more than 4,500 associates. If you would like to learn more about the birth of MINI you can book a tour of the plant by visiting www.visit-mini.com, which will allow you to discover how your new MINI is created!
