Mini builds 10 millionth vehicle

Mini has produced its 10 millionth vehicle at its plant in Oxford, England. The milestone vehicle was a three-door 60 Years Edition model, and during a ceremony at the factory it was put face to face with a Mini made in the first year of production, 1959. The original Mini was sold by a number of brands owned by the British Motor Corporation, and later British Leyland and the Rover Group. These included Austin, Morris, Leyland, Riley, Rover, and Wolseley.

The new larger Chevrolet Blazer 'XL' has been spied undergoing testing in Germany, of all places. The location where this prototype vehicle was spotted is a little surprising given GM sold its Opel and Vauxhall brands to the PSA Group in 2017, and shuttered the Chevrolet brand in much of Europe in 2015. Sources have told GM Authority the seven-seat Blazer is being developed for China, but could also be sold in South Korea and South America.
