MINI has triumphed at the News UK Motor Awards 2021, winning Best British Built Car for the MINI Electric and Dog Friendly Car of the Year for the MINI Clubman.

Will Dron, Editor of Sunday Times said: “Dog owners have very specific requirements when it comes to their cars, which is why MINI’s partnership with Dogs Trust and goal of becoming the first officially dog-friendly car retailer by 2022 will be music to their ears. The work MINI is doing with canine behaviour experts will no doubt pay dividends but already there's a lot going for the MINI Clubman when it comes to man's best friend: a low boot sill, the split rear doors, and a new dog pack, including a dog guard and rear compartment mat, help make travel much more comfortable for canine companions."

David George, Director, MINI UK said, “What fantastic categories for MINI to win at the News UK Motor Awards 2021. We’re proud that the MINI Electric is built at the home of the brand in Oxford, down the same line as our combustion engine cars and the MINI Clubman. We’ve recently partnered with Dogs Trust because it’s equally as important to us that our four-legged customers love being in a MINI as much as the drivers do, and the convenient split rear doors of the Clubman make it the perfect car for dog-owners, so we’re over the moon it’s been recognised as Dog Friendly Car of the year.”

The MINI Clubman offers three performance options, from the iconic Cooper to the all-powerful John Cooper Works, with optional ALL4 all-wheel drive system. Available in Classic, Sport and Exclusive trim levels, and the new Shadow Edition model, with prices starting from £23,505 OTR.

The MINI Electric has all the hallmark features of the brand and the added benefits of EV technology, with acceleration of 0-62 in 7.3 seconds and a range of up to 145 miles (WLTP) on a single charge. It’s available in three different trim levels, as well as the new Electric Collection model, priced from £26,000 OTR (including £2,500 government grant).

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.
