Munich. In the coming weeks millions of travellers will once again set out, on different routes, but with a common goal of going home to the people they love and want to spend the upcoming holidays with. And it doesn't matter whether you're on the highway, the motorway, a gravel road or a country road covered in winter snow: The soundtrack for this trip will always be along for the ride - on the radio, in your mind, in the memory of generations. MINI is dedicating a specially produced video clip to the song that gets people all over the world in the mood for the festive season every year, starring the global MINI community.

The production of the video is another highlight in the British premium car manufacturer's current brand campaign titled BIG LOVE. The motto is an expression of diversity embraced in practice in all its forms, welcoming fresh thinking and new ideas no matter where they come from. The MINI community's characteristic blend of individuality and the sense of belonging together plays a central role here. The diversity of this community is summed up by the slogan "We are all different, but pretty good together". In the video clip for "Driving Home for Christmas", MINI fans from different countries and regions are shown in a variety of ways making their way to families and friends during the festive season.

With the video clip production initiated by MINI, "Driving Home for Christmas" returns to where it all began: in a very special British automobile. Because the journey that inspired Chris Rea to write his successful song was taken in a classic Mini. In the video clip, the original journey from London to the north of England is reflected upon and combined with scenes showing MINI fans of today on their pre-Christmas journey.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
