BMW delays the next generation of the Mini due to Brexit uncertainty and costs: Official
FRANKFURT: BMW has delayed the development of its next iconic generation, as it seeks to reduce costs and uncertainty about Britain's commercial relations with the European Union hinder long-term investment decisions, a spokesman told Reuters.
The German has developed three generations of the Mini since he bought the Rover Group brand in 1994, keeping each vehicle on the market for about six years.
The current Mini hatch model, which has been on the market since 2014, is based on the company's technological platform called UKL1.
The lifespan of this platform has been extended, BMW spokesman Maximilian Schoeberl told Reuters. For cost reasons and because of.
