On 26 April 2001, the first MINI car rolled off the production line at Oxford, UK. Since then, MINI has produced more than five million cars in the UK. At the Oxford factory, the MINI 3-door, MINI 5-door and MINI Clubman as well as the MINI Cooper SE fully-electric are being built - all on the same production line.

BMW Group's chief executive, Oliver Zipse, was responsible for production at the MINI plant in Oxford from 2007 to 2008. On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the start of production, Oliver Zipse says: "Congratulations to everyone at the Oxford and Swindon plants for achieving this milestone. I still have fond memories of my time in Oxford. It was a real pleasure working in MINI's home market and in the heart of MINI with such committed and passionate colleagues, almost a quarter of whom have dedicated the last 20 years or more to build our cars ".

Currently, more than 4,500 highly qualified employees work at the MINI factories in Oxford and Swindon, including 130 trainees. Together, the strong team ensures that around 1,000 MINI cars are produced every day - one every 67 seconds.

The factories already have a very long tradition as production facilities. Cars have been produced for 65 years at the Swindon factory and for a full 108 years at the Oxford factory. In 2020, the Oxford plant took an important step into the future with the production of the MINI Cooper SE fully-electric. And this was only the beginning.

In the early 2030s, MINI will be the first brand in the BMW Group, where the entire model range is electric.
