The official website of the BMW Group states that all Mini Cooper vehicles are produced at BMW's Oxford plant, based in the United Kingdom. The production of Mini Coopers and all other Mini vehicles is integrated into BMW's production network.
In total, 80 percent of Mini automobiles are exported. The premium brand Mini was introduced, in its latest incarnation as of 2014, in 2001, when the BMW Group brought the Mini One and Mini Cooper to European markets. The year 2002 saw the addition of the Mini Cooper S, with further models such as the Cabrio, Clubman, Coupé, Hatch and Roadster joining the production lineup in subsequent years.
