MINI Celebrates 60 Years
This year MINI is celebrating a landmark birthday as the Mini/MINI Brand turns 60. This iconic British brand launched the first Mini in 1959 and even now the MINI phenomenon continues.
A Brief History of MINI
The Mini was launched in 1959 as a small, fuel efficient car which could carry four adults. Shortly after in 1961, a sportier car, the Mini Cooper was introduced. Then in 1963 a more powerful model was introduced, the Mini Cooper S. This British Brand quickly became popular and by 1999 over 5 million Classic Minis had been sold around the world. Nowadays other models are also available including the Mini Convertible, Clubman, Countryman and Countryman PHEV.
