July 31st, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

The MINI Electric has been produced at MINI's Oxford plant for the past year, and the factory just produced its 11,000th MINI Electric. If only 007 would drive one of these in a coming James Bond film — then MINI could perhaps produce and sell 11,000 a quarter instead of 11,000 a year!

The nation had 8,067 PEV registrations, the best month ever for plug-ins aside from previous fiscal-derived peaks in December 2013 (9,304 units), December 2015 (15,908), and December 2016 (11,132).
