Recognising talent across its 131-strong retail network, the awards celebrate the achievements of those providing an industry-leading experience for MINI customers across the UK and Northern Ireland.

‘Retailer of the Year’ 2020 was awarded to Grassicks MINI, Perth, for the second time, after first lifting the trophy for their performance in 2017. Grassicks were top performers across 9 key areas, including new car sales, used car sales (for which they were also category winners), profitability and customer satisfaction. Other categories and their winners included Dick Lovett Hungerford for Retail Sales, JKC Coleraine for both Customer Service and Aftersales and Berry Retailer Group for Corporate Sales.

David George, Director UK and Ireland, MINI UK said, “As we begin 2021, the brand’s twentieth year since the launch of the modern MINI, it’s important for us to look back and recognise our retailers’ outstanding achievements in 2020. MINI Electric was a shining star for us in this difficult year, and at the other end of the spectrum we welcomed, and promptly sold out of, the MINI John Cooper Works GP. In true MINI spirit, our retailers met the year’s challenges head-on, taking every opportunity, whether servicing key workers in lockdown 1.0 or reacting to the swell of demand when showroom doors opened again. Their tireless efforts mean we maintained our record market share of 2.8 per cent – a fantastic achievement.”

Magnus Wang, Franchise Director, Grassicks MINI said, “2020 was without doubt one of the most challenging years in automotive retail we’ve ever faced, so for Grassicks MINI to be crowned Retailer of the Year it means even more. It is fantastic recognition for the team’s determination and hard work and we are extremely proud. In 2021 we’re looking forward to focusing another year of efforts on selling exciting new MINI products and looking after our customers.”

2021 will see the latest generation of MINI move to the next stage of its evolution. MINI has revealed a fresh new design and technology updates on the MINI 3-Door Hatch, the MINI Electric, the MINI 5-Door Hatch and the MINI Convertible. Visit www.mini.co.uk to find out more.

CO2 emission information.

The values for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption shown were determined in a standardised test cycle according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version currently applicable. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers transmission (automatic or manual) and the different wheels and tyres available on the selected model and may vary during the configuration.

The values of the vehicles labelled with (*), are already based on the test cycle according to the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to allow a comparison between vehicles. More information on the transition from NEDC to WLTP test procedures can be found here.

These figures are intended for comparison purposes and may not be representative of what a user achieves under usual driving conditions. For plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles the figures have been obtained using a combination of battery power and petrol fuel after the battery had been fully charged. Plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. The CO2 emissions labels are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the Passenger Car (Fuel consumption and CO2 Emissions Information) Regulations 2001, as amended. They are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle.

A guide on fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contains data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge. For further information you can also visit this link.
