Plant Oxford, the only production home of MINI, has just stepped up a place in the UK league table of automotive manufacturers. In less than five years since the first MINI rolled off the Oxford production line, MINI is now the third largest motor manufacturer in the UK. 200,119 MINIs were produced in 2005 with roughly 70 per cent exported to over 70 countries. MINI comes after Toyota and Nissan, but is ahead of Vauxhall, Honda, Land Rover and Peugeot.
