Join us for an exciting opportunity to tour the Plant in Oxford and see how MINIs are made.
Plant Oxford is the birthplace and heart of MINI production. Manufactured to individual customer specifications, hundreds of MINIs leave the plant's assembly lines each day, off to meet new owners in more than 110 countries around the world.
Three UK plants have had a part to play in MINI production - Plant Hams Hall makes engines, Plant Swindon produces body pressings and sub-assemblies for MINI, and all this comes together at Plant Oxford with body shell production, paint and final assembly.
Since production of new MINI started in 2001, more than 2.5 million cars have been made at Plant Oxford. But the plant's heritage goes back much further than that - it is a site with 100 years of automotive manufacturing history, which has become a landmark in the "city of dreaming spires".
And now Plant Oxford has hit two more landmarks - the world premiere of the new MINI Hatch on 18 November 2013 and a production first for Oxford with the start of production of the 5-door Hatch on 1 July 2014.
