Mini cars are made by Mini USA, a division of BMW. The German automaker acquired the iconic British car business in 1994. Tiny 2-door cars with the Mini name first came to the U.S. in 1960 but left the market in 1968 after the government enacted new safety standards. The name returned for the 2002 model year under BMW’s leadership.
Mini has gas, plug-in hybrid, and fully electric vehicles in its lineup. The company manufactures its cars in England, Netherlands, and Austria.
