BMW bought the Mini brand in the year 1994 in order to reduce the average emissions of the vehicles they sold to please the European Union.

By purchasing the Mini brand from the British companies that held onto it (although models weren't being built under that name anymore) they could have easy instant success.

The German automobile manufacturer went ahead and released the new Mini Cooper as soon as possible in 2001.

Buyers were quick to notice a car considerably bigger than the original classics from the 1960s but it was packed with new safety equipment and comfort features.

As it was a BMW brand the company felt it couldn't remain as the minimalist lightweight model that wouldn't pass modern safety tests.

It was an overnight hit with many drivers, appealing to young and old with its variety of trims and engines helping it stay relevant in many different regions.

The company promised to release different varieties of the car and teased that they would release commercial vehicles like a cement mixer and pickup truck but never did.

What they did release over the years were variations on the designs that would appeal to a larger market, including the Clubman revival that was half car and half van.
