This Could be One of the Last New Gas-Powered Mini Coopers

This Could be One of the Last New Gas-Powered Mini Coopers

Mini’s transition to electrification means that ICE-powered Mini’s are a dying breed, but they aren’t dead yet

Mini’s plans to produce only electric vehicles starting in 2030 obviously gives some time for the brand to transition, and that’s why we’re looking at an ICE-powered prototype of a next-gen Mini Cooper today. Since this is an early prototype, it’s covered in heavy camo, so we can’t see most of the design changes.

What we can tell you, though, is that it will retain that classic – and arguably outdated – Mini shape. It will feature a revised front fascia, new headlights, and a refreshed grille. This prototype doesn’t seem to be flaunting any changes in the rear, but the Mini Cooper EV does feature trapezoidal lights, so those could make their way to this model before it shifts into production.

With all of that said, don’t expect to see much in terms of powertrain or performance updates. Tweaks, if any, will probably be limited to updates to comply with emissions standards. The interior should see some updates, though, with the larger infotainment system being the highlight and the driver information center carry-over being the downside. There’s currently no solid debut date, but sometime in 2023 is a good guess, with sales to commence for the 2024 model year.

2022 Infiniti QX50

This Nissan-bred entry level luxury crossover claims to be powerful, efficient, and comfortable, but does it actually have the said qualities?

The 2022 model year of the most-compact Infiniti arrives with more tech including a whole suite of driving assistance features and optional visual upgrades. It is one of the best you could buy for the price and is quite reliable, which is obvious coming from a Nissan brand.

Mazda Says That The MX-30’s Measly 100-Mile Range Makes It A Perfect Second Car

Any better excuses, Mazda?

The MX-30 is Mazda’s first attempt at making a purely electric vehicle (EV). Unfortunately, in a world where most EVs have a decent range, the MX-30’s 100-mile range is abysmally low by any measure. As a result, the Japanese automaker’s marketing direction for the MX-30 is that it’s the perfect second car. That statement certainly holds true, if your idea of a second car means having the range of a golf cart.
