In 2030, MINI will be the first brand of the BMW Group to be converted entirely to electric drive.While the Munich-based company has so far not wanted to commit to specific annual figures for the end of the combustion engine at BMW or Rolls-Royce, according to a report there will be an end date for the small car brand MINI from next week.

The report claims, BMW boss Oliver will be Zipse announce the end of combustion engines at MINI at the balance sheet press conference next week.

Mini will follow other prominent carmakers like Jaguar and Volvo in revealing its plans to go fully electric in near future. Tesla's increasing valuations, which has gone up in leaps and bounds in recent times, has accelerated carmakers' shift towards electric mobility.
