MINI continues its spectacular video clip series in the lead up to the market launch of the brand's first all-electric model, the MINI Electric.

MINI has presented another video clip, which illustrates the benefits of emissions free mobility.

The video clip features a MINI Electric taking a detour through the roof of the Lingotto building
In the short film titled: The Getaway Car, the new MINI Electric proves to be the ideal escape vehicle from everyday city traffic.

The clip is set in the northern Italian metropolis of Turin - as always with the typical MINI tongue-in-cheek style. The driver of the new MINI Electric escapes the nerve-racking traffic jams of rush hour traffic by making a detour through narrow side streets leading him directly to the roof of the Lingotto building in the district of the same name on the Via Nizza.

The historic industrial complex was once the largest production site of an Italian automobile manufacturer, and includes a test track on the roof, which was laid out as a circuit and is about one kilometre long.

Today the Lingotto building houses, among other things, a shopping centre and hotels. The test track on the roof, however, remained intact even after the conversion. It is here that the new MINI Electric meets a red classic Mini Cooper making its rounds on the historic track, reminiscent of a legendary scene from the 1969 movie classic The Italian Job.
