BMW, which owns Mini, is planning tons of models on the platform that the new Mini and BMW 1-Series will be based on. Along with the Minis of all sorts of shapes and sizes, we're now getting reports that one of them will be a plug-in hybrid Mini.
Originally, the rumors issuing forth from Munich were saying that the hybrid system would only be available in the BMW 1-Series, but that is now being contradicted. An electric model is also under consideration.
It will look similar to the Vision concept (shown).
