This gave the ADO15 a smooth ride over small bumps, but minimised roll and pitch on more uneven surfaces. An agreement was made on the inch size, after Dunlop rejected the eight-inch proposition.
Many features were designed into the ADO15's interior to maximise its passenger and luggage space on top of the major savings allowed by the transverse engine and inch wheels.
Sliding windows allowed single-skin doors to be fitted, improving elbow room and reducing costs. A bracing bar was fitted across the door frame to brace the single skin and this was later adapted into a large storage bin on each door.
Issigonis later said that he had sized the bins to carry the ingredients of his favourite drink, a dry martini  in the correct proportions one bottle of vermouth and 2 of Gordon's Gin.
Similar bins were provided outboard of the rear seats, also serving a dual function of bracing the single-skin body panel.
Small items could also be stowed under the rear seats, and early Minis were sold with optional wicker baskets specially shaped to slot under the seats.
The fixed rear parcel shelf contributed to the rigidity of the body shell, although it did preclude fitting the ADO15 with a hatchback.
The boot lid was hinged at the bottom so that the car could be driven with it open to increase luggage space.
On early cars, the number plate was hinged at the top so that it could swing down to remain visible when the boot lid was open. This feature was later discontinued after it was discovered that exhaust gases could leak into the cockpit when the boot was open.
The Mini was designed as a monocoque shell with welded seams visible on the outside of the car running down the A and C pillars , and between the body and the floor pan.
Those that ran from the base of the A-pillar to the wheel well were described as 'everted' lit. To further simplify construction, the hinges for the doors and boot lid were mounted externally.
This also saved a small amount of cabin space. It also made the ADO15 very easy to assemble from complete knock-down kits in overseas markets with only basic industry.
Cars could be assembled with minimal use of jigs as the external seams made the panels largely 'self-aligning'. They also allowed panels to be stacked flat on top of one other for easy shipping.
As originally built, all the structural body panels were welded to the top of the single floor pressing, but this caused major problems with water entering the cabin and was quickly changed in the first months of production.
Early prototypes were fully unitary in construction, but the cars broke apart under the high loads from the large lever ratios used with the rubber cone suspension.
The design was changed to use steel subframes to carry the drivetrain and suspension for the front and rear. This also simplified production, as both subframes could be built up independently and then mated to the already-completed bodyshell.
It also opened up the possibility of easily producing variants on the ADO15 as a body of any shape or design could be used provided it could accommodate the subframes.
The production version of the Mini was demonstrated to the press in April , and by August, several thousand cars had been produced ready for the first sales.
Some 2, cars had already been sent abroad and were displayed that day in almost countries. The Mini was marketed under BMC's two main brand names, Austin and Morris, until , when it became a marque in its own right.
The Morris name Mini Mini-Minor was first used for Austin's version by BMC in when the Austin Seven was rebranded as the Austin Mini,  somewhat to the surprise of the Sharp's Commercials car company later known as Bond Cars , who had been using the name Minicar for their three-wheeled vehicles since However, legal action was somehow averted,  and BMC used the name "Mini" thereafter.
In , the suspension of the cars was replaced by another Moulton design, the hydrolastic system. The new suspension gave a softer ride, but it also increased weight and production cost.
In , the original rubber suspension reappeared and was retained for the remaining life of the Mini. From October , the option of the unique Automotive Products designed four-speed automatic transmission became available.
Cars fitted with this became the Mini-Matic. Slow at the outset, Mark I sales strengthened across most of the model lines in the s, and production totalled 1,, BMC insisted that the way company overheads were shared out, the Mini always made money.
The Mini entered into popular culture in the s with well-publicised purchases by film and music stars. The Cooper S version was also used by some British police departments as a plainclothes car.
The Mark II Mini was launched at the British Motor Show ,  and featured a redesigned grille, a larger rear window and numerous cosmetic changes.
A variety of Mini types was made in Pamplona , Spain, by the Authi company from onwards, mostly under the Morris name. The bodyshell mould was created by the Peel Engineering Company.
Production began in and continued for a few years; these fibreglass Minis can be recognised by the missing body seams and by larger panel gaps.
The Chilean market was never very large and the hyperinflation and political and social collapse led to the coup. The Arica plant was closed in The most obvious changes were larger doors with concealed hinges.
Customer demand led to the sliding windows being replaced with winding windows, although some Australian-manufactured Mark I Minis had adopted this feature in with opening quarterlight windows.
The suspension reverted from hydrolastic to rubber cones  as a cost-saving measure. In , the simple name Mini completely replaced the separate Austin and Morris brands.
In the late s, Innocenti introduced the Innocenti 90 and , Bertone -designed hatchbacks based on the Mini platform. Bertone also created a Mini Cooper equivalent, christened the Innocenti De Tomaso , that sported a cc engine similar to the MG Metro engine, but with an stud head, a special inlet manifold, and used the "A" clutch instead of the "Verto" type.
It also used homokinetic shafts instead of rubber couplings. The Mini was still popular in Britain, but appeared increasingly outdated in the face of newer and more practical rivals.
Since the late s, plans had been in place for a newer and more practical supermini to replace it, though the Mini was still the only car of this size built by British Leyland for the home market.
The Mark IV was introduced in , though by this stage British Leyland was working on a new small car which was widely expected to replace the Mini before much longer.
It had a front rubber-mounted subframe with single tower bolts and the rear frame had some larger bushings introduced, all intended to improve the car's mechanical refinement and to reduce noise levels.
Twin column stalks for indicators and wipers were introduced, as were larger foot pedals. From onwards, the rear light clusters included reversing lights.
In July the lower end of the Mini range was altered. The basic Mini which had featured in various forms since the original launch 20 years before was withdrawn.
Its place was taken by two models at slightly lower and slightly higher price points. The new base model was the Mini City, with black-painted bumpers, an untrimmed lower facia rail, part-fabric seats and wing mirror and sun visor only on the driver's side, plus unique 'City' body graphics and boot badge.
Above the City was the new SDL Super Deluxe , which had the same specification as the standard Mini but with the smaller engine.
For August the Mini's 20th anniversary was marked by the introduction of the first true limited-edition Mini, which was the Mini Special.
This was a car run with the cc engine, broadly to the specification already in production for the European market as a standard model with the same name.
However this was the first time a UK-market 'round-nose' i. Inside was the GT's three-dial instrument cluster and a leather-rimmed wheel with a rectangular centre from the Innocenti Mini hatchback.
The Special  and City models were phased out by ,  and during the same year the engine was upgraded to the improved A-Plus unit from the new Metro.
This was then followed by a number of incremental developments. In , the Mini was one of the key cars made available to disabled motorists under the new Motability scheme.
Reports of the Mini's imminent demise surfaced again in with the launch of the Austin Mini-Metro badging with the word "mini" in all lowercase.
Faced with competition from a new wave of modern superminis like the Ford Fiesta , Renault 5 , and Volkswagen Polo , the Mini was beginning to fall out of favour in many export markets, with the South African, Australian, and New Zealand markets all stopping production around this time.
Buyers of small cars now wanted modern and practical designs, usually with a hatchback. Although the Mini continued to be produced after the Metro's launch, production volumes were reduced as British Leyland and its successor Rover Group concentrated on the Metro as its key supermini.
The original Mini's last year in the top ten of Britain's top selling cars was , as it came ninth and the Metro was fifth.
The arrival of the Metro also had production of the larger Allegro pruned back before it was finally discontinued in In , BL made 56, Minis and over , Metros.
During the early s, the Mini received many mechanical upgrades which were shared with the Metro, such as the A-Plus engine , inch wheels with front disc brakes, improved soundproofing and quieter, stronger transmissions.
This not only modernised the Mini but, because many of its major subassemblies were now shared with the Metro, made it very cost-effective to produce despite falling sales volumes.
The Mini's 25th anniversary fell in and British Leyland produced a 'Mini 25' limited-edition model, both to mark the occasion and to publicise the recent upgrades to the model.
This marked the start of a turnaround in the Mini's fortunes. Basic models such as the City and the City E using the economy-tuned drivetrain from the Metro HLE filled in the bottom of the Austin-Rover range and still found buyers who wanted a compact city car that was easy to park and cheap to run.
Low purchase and running costs also made the Mini continually popular as a first car for younger drivers, and Austin-Rover introduced a steady stream of limited editions with bright paint colours, body graphics, and trim to appeal to this market.
The Mini was also becoming prized as a characterful and nostalgic car in its own right, and the London Collection of limited-edition models was more upmarket and luxurious and named after affluent or fashionable parts of London.
These marketing strategies proved very successful; Mini production actually had modest increases through the mids, from 34, in to 35, in and 39, in By , with the reintroduction of the very popular Cooper model, Mini production passed 40, In , Austin Rover decided to keep the Mini in production for as long as it was viable to do so, putting an end to reports that it would be discontinued by , by which time the original Metro would also be replaced.
The fibreglass Mini built in Chile from until was not the only fibreglass version; in the summer of , a fibreglass bodied Mini again entered production, this time in Venezuela.
The producer, Facorca, intended to sell the car in the Caribbean and Central America, and also had plans for Brazilian assembly. All cars had 8. The Mini Cooper was relaunched in , 20 years after the demise of the original model.
The engine mounting points were moved forward to take cc power units, and includes the later Horizontal Integral Float version of the SU carb , plus the single-point fuel-injected car, which came out in The cc power units were discontinued.
An internal bonnet release was fitted from This was the final version, twin point injection with front-mounted radiator.
Full-width dashboard replaces the original shelf, internal bonnet release. Introduction of airbag on driver's side.
The basic Mini was the 1. Released in as more luxurious versions of the Mini, both the Wolseley Hornet and the Riley Elf had longer, slightly finned rear wings and larger boots that gave the cars a more conventional three-box design.
The wheelbase of the Elf and Hornet remained at 2. The cars had larger-diameter chrome hubcaps than the Austin and Morris Minis, and additional chrome accents, bumper overriders and wood-veneer dashboards.
The Riley was the more expensive of the two cars. The full-width dashboard was a differentiator between the Elf and Hornet. Plates in the engine compartment on the right side fitch plate bear evidence of this speciality.
Very early Mark I versions of both cars e. The Elf's and Hornet's special bumper overriders first appeared in In the Heinz food company commissioned, from Crayford Convertibles Crayford Engineering , 57 convertible Hornets to be given as prizes in a UK competition.
Many are still on the road as of Both the Elf and the Hornet went through three engine versions. Therefore, Mark II cars also came with increased braking power in the form of front drum brakes with twin leading shoes to cope with the increased power output.
Both Mark I and Mark II featured four-speed gearboxes three synchromesh gears with rod gear change, a. Automatic gearboxes became available on the Mark II in as an option.
The Mark III facelift of brought wind-up windows and fresh-air fascia vents. Concealed door hinges were introduced two years before these were seen on the mainstream Mini.
The gear selecting mechanism was updated to the rod type, as seen on all later Mini type cars. Automatic gearboxes were available to the Mark III in again.
Full-four synchromesh gearing was eventually introduced during Code example: R-A2S Riley, A type engine, 2 door saloon, 1st series, serial number "" .
These models were two-door estate cars with double "barn"-style rear doors. Both were built on a slightly longer chassis of 84 inches 2.
The early Morris Mini Traveller and Austin Mini Countryman cars had an internal fuel tank located on the left hand side of the rear load area.
This is identifiable by the fuel filler cap being on the left hand side of the car just below the rear window. In October the fuel tank was relocated to the underneath of the car and the filler cap was moved to low down on the right hand side of the car — the same configuration that was already in use on the Mini Van.
From the start of production both models had a decorative, non-structural, ash wood trim on the rear body, in the style of a pre-war shooting-brake.
This gave the car a similar appearance to the larger Morris Minor Traveller and gave rise to these cars simply being called a woodie.
It is a popular misconception that the difference between the Traveller and the Countryman is the wood trim. An all steel version of both the Traveller and the Countryman without the wood trim was launched for export markets in April and for the home market in October , but the woodie version remained more popular.
The Mini Traveller and Countryman Register was created in to help locate and preserve the remaining Mini Traveller and Countryman cars.
Built on the longer Traveller chassis but without side windows, it proved popular in s Britain as a cheaper alternative to the car: it was classed as a commercial vehicle and as such carried no sales tax.
A set of simple stamped steel slots served in place of a more costly chrome grille. The Mini Van was renamed as the Mini 95 in , the number representing the gross vehicle weight of 0.
A utility vehicle intended for the British Army was built with a twin-engined 4-wheel-drive. Although the 4WD Moke could climb a gradient, it lacked enough ground clearance for military use.
About 50, were made in total,  from to in the UK, to in Australia and to in Portugal. As with the Van, the Pick-up had stamped metal slots for airflow into the engine compartment.
The Pickup was basic, although the factory brochure described a "fully equipped Mini Pick-up is also available which includes a recirculatory heater.
A total of 58, Mini Pick-up models were built. The Mini K was offered in 2-door saloon  and 2-door van body styles. I-style externally hinged doors.
A small round sticker with a kangaroo logo was placed on the triangular panel between the door and the front body seam. The "Kangaroo" name was supposedly coined because it is claimed that a kangaroo can go all day without drinking which the advertisers used to emphasise the frugal fuel consumption and, possibly, larger fuel tank.
Issigonis' friend John Cooper , owner of the Cooper Car Company and designer and builder of Formula One cars, saw the potential of the Mini for competition.
Issigonis was initially reluctant to see the Mini in the role of a performance car, but after John Cooper appealed to BMC management, the two men collaborated to create the Mini Cooper.
One thousand units of this version were commissioned by management, intended for and designed to meet the homologation rules of Group 2 rally racing.
A more powerful Mini Cooper, dubbed the "S", was developed in tandem and released in The smaller-engine model was not well received, and only had been built when the model was discontinued in The Cooper name was discontinued from the UK Mini range at this time.
It proved popular and a new Cooper-marked Mini went into full production in late In , under the ownership of British Leyland, the Mini was given a facelift by stylist Roy Haynes , who had previously worked for Ford.
The Mini Clubman was intended to replace the upmarket Riley and Wolseley versions. The Clubman Estate replaced the Countryman and Traveller. The original "round-front" design remained in production alongside the Clubman and GT.
Production of the Clubman and GT got off to a slow start because the cars incorporated "lots of production changes" including the relocation of tooling from the manufacturer's Cowley plant to the Longbridge plant : very few cars were handed over to customers before the early months of Early domestic market Clubmans were still delivered on cross-ply tyres despite the fact that by radials had become the norm for the car's mainstream competitors.
The official name was always just the "Mini GT", and it was a separate, distinct model from the Clubman although it shared the same frontal treatment as the Mini Clubman, and was launched at the same time.
Innocenti in Italy, however, continued making their own version of the Mini Cooper for some time. It was the first Mini to be equipped with a tachometer.
It also featured a standard-fit close-ratio gearbox, and initially had inch Throughout the s, British Leyland continued to produce the classic "round-front" design, alongside the newer Clubman and GT models.
The long-nose Clubman and GT offered better crash safety, were better equipped, and had better under-bonnet access, but they were more expensive and aerodynamically inferior to the original design.
The Mini Clubman and GT were replaced in by the new hatchback Austin Metro, while production of the original "round-front" Mini design continued for another 20 years.Im August wurde die Produktpalette einem Facelift unterzogen und um die Cabrio-Versionen erweitert.

All units were produced in the same specification, with the only option from new being an all-weather tyre, rather than the semi-slick tyre developed by Kumho.
Left and right hand drives of this model exist. The old tradition of producing special, limited-edition Minis was also continued with the new Mini.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Mini brand, two models were released in the Mini 50 Mayfair and the Mini 50 Camden.
At the London Olympic Games , a set of quarter scale remote-controlled Minis delivered throwing equipment, loaded into the car through the sun roof, to the athletes.
In commemoration of Mini being an official partner of Team GB, an Olympic-themed special limited edition Mini Cooper was released, with a white roof featuring the London Olympic logo, and the London skyline printed on the dash.
The third generation Mini was unveiled by BMW in November , with sales starting in the first half of The increase in size results in a larger interior and a boot volume increase to litres.
Six all-new engines are offered for this Mini, 4 petrol, and 2 diesels: two models of a 1. These engines are mated with a choice of either a 6-speed manual, a 6-speed automatic, or a 6-speed sports automatic gearbox.
It is marketed as a 5-door version of the new 3rd generation Hatch. In , the Life Cycle Impulse LCI brought twin turbos to the 3-cylinder diesel engines, albeit with no changes in output.
The 6-speed Steptronic torque-converter was also replaced by a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission in all models but the Cooper SD and JCW, with the latter now fitted with an 8-speed Steptronic auto.
These changes allow for improved efficiency and better emissions test results in the WLTP cycle, as well as marginally improved performance.
The shape is slightly more rounded than the one it replaces, in order both to improve the car's aerodynamic efficiency and to enhance pedestrian protection in the event of accidents.
It has a much longer overhang and higher bonnet. Criticisms of the design of the F56 MINI Cooper have focused upon the extruded and complex design of the front bumper in Cooper S and JCW variants, as well as the larger front overhang and oversized tail lamps.
Further criticism has also centred upon the overstyled nature of the exterior design. The Mini is also the first in its segment to offer LED headlamps for its main and dipped beams as an option.
With its larger exterior dimensions, the all-new Mini provides more space for its four occupants and luggage, with enhanced shoulder space and larger footwells.
The dashboard retains its instrument layout, but adds a new instrument binnacle on the steering column for the speedometer, tachometer, and fuel gauge.
The central instrument display now houses a four-line TFT display with the option to upgrade to an 8. The stripped-out interior included a roll cage and only a pair of racing seats back seats were absent with five-point racing harnesses.
Outside, both front and rear wheels were covered by prominent fenders especially in the rear. A unique rear-wing and centerlock 19" wheels were other features of the track-focused hot hatch.
In June , a tweet  was posted showing the Nürburgring time of molded into the plastic trim of the dashboard. The actual production model was revealed in November ,   retaining some characteristics from the concept like a very similar rear-wing and fenders this time smaller in the rear.
The wider track and wider wheels are what called for those wheel fenders. Other more extreme racing features for a street car like the centerlock wheels and five-point harnesses were removed, although the back seats were kept absent.
The suspension is even stiffer and lower than a standard JCW and the turbocharger was redesigned for more boost pressure.
The transmission is automatic only because there was no manual transmission available that could withstand the power and torque from the engine.
The 2. Between and , 2. The Mini brand enjoyed paradoxically strong sales and customer loyalty in the US, while at the same time being rated worst for problems found in the JD Power survey.
In , Mini ranked last, 37 out of 37 brands, in the JD Power Initial Quality Survey, having landed second to last the previous year.
The survey gives the same weight to problems from something being broken, and problems due to the car owner finding them difficult to use, unfamiliar, or confusing.
The quirky controls found in Minis, such as non-standard windshield wiper or interior lighting switches, were counted both as "problems" that hurt Mini's ranking in the Initial Quality Survey, and also as distinguishing "idiosyncrasies" that, over time, made owners grow to love the cars.
This contributed to brand loyalty and relatively strong sales, and expanding the number of US Mini dealerships, in the midst of the recession and automotive industry crisis of — Consumer Reports ranked Mini as the least reliable car brand in , saying that, "less-expensive European brands are having more problems", perhaps due to cost-cutting at the expense of reliability.
