The Mini is the small car icon of the 1960s. It was produced by BMC (British Motor Corporation) starting with 1959 and was the first car to get the front-wheel-drive. This space saving solution influenced all the manufacturers, as nowadays FWD is the most popular drive-train layout. The new MINI was launched in 2001 and got to replace the legend with updates for the 21st Century.
The revolutionary design of the Mini was created by Sir Alec Issigonis (1906–1988), considered a visionary in industrial transportation. It was intended as an affordable vehicle in response to the oil crisis. Along its production period it was built at the Cowley plants in the United Kingdom, and afterwards in Australia, Belgium, Chile, Italy, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Uruguay and Venezuela.
Following its huge success in 1959, MK1 was first marketed as Austin Se7en, which was available in 2 models, Basic and De Luxe. Soon after, Morris Minor marketed the MK1 as Mini-Minor, which was also available in Basic and De Luxe models. However, since Morris went with the original name of the car, ‘Mini’, its vehicles were selling more than the Austin Se7en from Austin Motor Company.
