"These initial sketches for the fully electrified MINI outline our vision of authentic design creating a bridge between the history of the brand and its electric future", says MINI design head Oliver Heilmer.

The production model will be rolled out from Mini's Oxford plant 11 years after the Mini E went on sale with 600 total examples made back then.

The initial design sketches will be revealed in time for the Festival of Speed, taking place on 12 - 15 July in Goodwood, southern England.

The nomenclature of the upcoming EV is yet unknown but it will harbinger the electrification future of Mini in many ways than one.

The unique vehicle was created by Oliver Heilmer, Head of Mini Design, and his team for the wedding of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, and Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex.

The sketches show the car's grille.

The ambiguity involved in the conflicting New Mexico and MA rulings may mean the suspension of payments will indeed be temporary. This provision, called "guarantee issue", remains one of the most popular among consumers, according to numerous opinion polls.

The hexagonal shape is indicative of Mini but the closed off nature is new for the EV.

Due to the grille being closed off, airflow is improved on the zero-emissions variant.

The first image (above) shows the new model's front grille, while the second (below) shows the futuristic alloy wheel design - both largely unchanged from the Mini Electric concept (bottom) shown a year ago.

Mini has released first official teaser images of its forthcoming electric hatchback after having been spied nearly production ready recently. It will go on sale in the worldwide markets sometime next year after unveiling probably in the due course of this year.

The new model fits the Mini template by turning electric mobility into an emotionally engaging experience brimming with driving fun, style and individuality.
