Mini is the latest brand to confirm all of its models will be electric from 2030

The brand, which sits under the BMW umbrella, will introduce its final combustion-engine model in 2025 and wants half of its global sales to be electric by 2027.

Mini just has one zero-emission model, the electric edit of its famous Cooper, and is the latest in a series of manufacturers to announce they're binning traditional engines completely after Jaguar Land Rover, Ford and Volvo all did so earlier this year. 

Jaguar Land Rover will see the brand stop selling ICE vehicles in the UK by 2030 and global production will have stopped by 2036.

Volvo is aiming to phase out new petrol and diesel cars by 2025, at which point it expects hybrids to account for 50% of sales and pure electric models to account for 50% of sales. It then plans to phase out hybrids by 2030.

And the strategy is similar at Ford, which has also announced plans to only sell electric cars in Europe from 2030. The American manufacturer expects to stop selling traditional petrol and diesel models by 2026, and then phasing out hybrids in the run up to the end of the decade.
