MINI India

The BMW Group introduced MINI as a premium brand in India in January 2012 with the launch of MINI Hatch, MINI Convertible and MINI Countryman.

In the start-up phase, BMW Group will concentrate on successfully establishing the MINI brand in India. An exclusive MINI dealer network has been established in India for this purpose. MINI India has five exclusive outlets in the Indian market: Deutsche Motoren and Bird Automotive in Delhi (National Capital Region), Infinity Cars in Mumbai, KUN Exclusive in Hyderabad and Navnit Motors in Bangalore.

The MINI Countryman is locally produced at the BMW Plant Chennai in two diesel variants – MINI Cooper D Countryman and MINI Cooper D Countryman High. The MINI ONE Countryman is produced in petrol variant at BMW Plant Chennai. The other petrol variants of the MINI Countryman - The MINI Cooper S Countryman and MINI Cooper S Countryman High - are imported in India as Completely Built-up Units (CBU).

The MINI (MINI Cooper and MINI Cooper S) and MINI Convertible (MINI Cooper Convertible) are imported in India as Completely Built-up Units (CBU) in petrol variants.

MINI: A global success and ‘Car of the Decade’.

The modern MINI combines an agile “Go-kart” handling as its most natural characteristic with cutting-edge efficiency and uncompromising premium quality. MINI has established itself around the world as a symbol of urban driving fun and an indispensable element in its driver’s mobile lifestyle.

MINI Convertible: Inspiringly Agile, Refreshingly Open.

The MINI Convertible blends the brand’s hallmark attributes with the refreshing feeling of open-air motoring with greater intensity than ever before. Again, the brand’s soft-top representative is unmistakably a MINI. Its proportions, short front and rear overhangs, large wheel cut-outs, the height of the waistline and numerous design features typical of the brand clearly show that this is a full-fledged member of the MINI family.

MINI Countryman: Taking driving fun into new territory.

The MINI Countryman takes the hallmark MINI driving fun to a new dimension and marks the arrival on the scene of a MINI with four doors, a large tailgate and a variable-use interior capable of accommodating up to five people. The MINI Countryman is also the brand’s first model with a body over four metres in length. Its advanced chassis technology and the extremely precise and efficient Electric Power Steering ensure that the typical MINI, ‘Go-kart’ driving experience is preserved.
