Richmond Hill, ON/Calgary, AB. In mid-April, MINI
announced that the one millionth example of the current generation
MINI had rolled off the production line. On Wednesday, June 28th that
vehicle was delivered to Steve and Kerry Lockhart who are now part of
the MINI family.

The one millionth MINI of the current generation is an
all-electric MINI Cooper SE built at Plant Oxford in the United
Kingdom. Fittingly, the tradition-rich British plant is celebrating
its 110th anniversary this year.

“We’ve been MINI fans for a number of years, and finally decided
to purchase our first MINI earlier this year,” said Steve Lockhart, a
Redwood Meadows resident who purchased the one millionth MINI with his
wife Kerry. “It’s such an iconic brand. To be a small part of its rich
history is both humbling and exciting. I wasn’t expecting this
attention when we decided to purchase our first MINI!”

In 2013, MINI presented the current and fourth generation MINI 3 door
for the first time. It has been available worldwide since 2014. The
one millionth MINI 3 door of the current generation was delivered at
MINI Calgary in Alberta, Canada.

The millionth MINI has special features including badging and
details demarcating its heritage and milestone status. To mark its
delivery, a fun celebration in true MINI style was hosted at MINI
Calgary. But perhaps most heartwarming for the Lockharts was a video
message from Charlie Cooper – grandson of John Cooper and member of
the MINI royal family – welcoming them to the family. “You’re going to
have a lot of fun with your MINI,” said Cooper in his message. “I
remember getting my first MINI – it wasn’t my first car…because my dad
said you’ve got to EARN getting your MINI Cooper, which I got when I
was 18. You’re now part of the family,” continued Cooper, “so get out
there and enjoy it!”

Right from the start, MINI was an attention-getting, fun-loving
member of high society. Royalty, film stars, musicians and celebrities
fell in love with it. The brand celebrated its 60th anniversary in
2019, and now celebrates the delivery of its one millionth example to
a family that – while perhaps surprised by the fanfare when they
arrived to pick up their new vehicle – seems to have fallen just as
much in love with the brand, the vehicle and the community.
