Earlier this week, BMW CEO Oliver Zipse has announced that Mini will become an all electric only company by the year 2030, with the company’s last combustion only model to be released in 2025, then on everything new the company launches will be electric only. So far the company only has the new Mini E on sale, which went on sale in March 2020 with prices starting at £25,500 for 145 miles of range, which compared with the competition isn’t a lot.

Mini also has some plug in hybrid models of the Countryman on sale, but come 2035, hybrid models wont be allowed to be sold in Europe and the UK either.

Other companies have recently announced plans to go electric only, including Jaguar which has said it’ll be electric only by 2025 and Ford which has said by 2030.
