Late last year saw the opening of the Autohub Group‘s multibrand showroom in Bonifacio Global City located on 38th Street corner 11th Avenue at Triangle Drive. But yesterday, Mini Philippines welcomed guests from Mini Asia to formally kick the year off in its flagship dealership.

The 753sq-m showroom is capable of displaying up to four units, including a corner for the sporty John Cooper Works models, complete with accessories and swatches for colors and interior finishes.

There is also a nook for the Mini Lifestyle Collection for luggage, shirts, and other merchandise, including a service center that should allow for quick jobs like oil changes (but more extensive repairs will have to be done at the proper service factory).

There is also a reception area and a roof deck that can serve as a venue for events. For future plans, the dealership is looking to install EV charging points. This is in line with the distributor’s plans to eventually introduce electric Minis to its lineup. No specific dates were mentioned, but if there’s any time to do so, now would be it with the tax reductions for electric vehicles.
