Munich. In several European countries, MINI is supporting authentic entities and start-ups which are tackling today's social challenges with their unusual ideas and demonstrating how a sustainable, socially responsible future can be shaped. The #MINI VOICES platform is created for personalities and initiatives that have the potential to change the world. Their presence on MINI's social media channels gives them the opportunity to provide inspiration worldwide.

MINI Portugal’s partnership with Vhils Studio, Iminente and Underdogs has been launched with a film demonstrating perfectly the four entities’ shared values - tolerance; equality; solidarity; inclusion - and their passion for art, culture, and urban environments. Future joint projects this year will include a cinema as a new artistic area of the Festival Iminente. The drive-in cinema will be exclusively supported by MINI.

Pedro Faria, General Manager MINI Portugal, says: “We are very pleased with the partnership with these three cultural entities, recognized at national and international level, both for their talent and for their innovation. Being able to share experiences, learn about other perspectives and collaborate on various projects will allow the brand to assume an active voice in the celebration of urban culture, as a movement for the progressive transformation of cities.”

“With this new partnership, we intend to continue our role as promoters of culture, and develop, together with MINI, artistic projects that can positively contribute to the enrichment of urban art and to the improvement of life in the cities”, highlights Romain Trevisan, CEO of Vhils Studio, Iminente and Underdogs.

Finding unconventional solutions and rethinking what already exists has always been part of the MINI identity. With its clever use of space, the classic Mini was a pioneer in efficient mobility, predominantly geared towards the city lifestyle. Today, the MINI Electric takes that spirit even further with an all-electric powertrain. Off the road, MINI has participated in several projects that seek to improve the quality of life in urban environments. This partnership, which will initially run for 12 months, underscores the importance of providing a new look at cities and of the well-being of all communities and different lifestyles.

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:
