BMW board member Peter Schwarzenbauer said on Tuesday that the research and
development of the next electric MINI will take place in China. Last month,
BMW confirmed the talks and the signing of a “letter of intent” with the
Chinese carmaker Great Wall Motor Co., potentially giving the Chinese
company its first foreign manufacturing partner and the German group’s first
Mini assembly site outside Europe.

“It will be developed in China and it will be produced in China, but we
don’t know where yet,” Schwarzenbauer told reporters ahead of the Geneva
auto show. “The car could also be exported.”

“You have to have certain components localized. In the new energy vehicles
regulation, the drivetrain and the battery technology needs to be sourced
locally,” Schwarzenbauer said, adding that BMW Group would rely on its
existing sales partnerships to sell the vehicle.

One of the reasons behind the decision is the ineligibility for local
subsidies because it does not have components sourced in China,
Schwarzenbaer said.

Production of first, mass-production electric MINI will start in 2019.
