MINI isn’t always an obvious choice when searching for a company car. But we’re here to tell you all about the perks of running a MINI, or a fleet of MINIs, through your business.

If you are a sole trader looking for a car that works for your business, or you manage a fleet of company cars, our dedicated corporate team at Lloyd Group can help you find the perfect MINI to suit your needs.

10 reasons to choose a MINI as your next company car

1. Choose from a five strong line-up

At Lloyd MINI, we’ve got a car to fit your business needs, whether you’re looking for something electric, economically efficient, a smart use of space, or a stand-out design. Because we’re more than just a one car act - we’re a five strong line-up.

While some might associate MINI with ‘small’, the range now includes the MINI Clubman; style, practicality, versatility and iconic split rear doors are all part of the package that makes this model perfect for business.

Then there’s the SUV of the MINI range, namely the MINI Countryman. Big, bold and ready for adventure, the spacious MINI Countryman is the perfect car to take on the challenges of business. Not only does it boast up to 450 litres of boot space (1,390 with the rear seats down), the standard specification also includes an impressive range of standard features including Navigation with Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI), MINI Connected services including online search and weather updates, Bluetooth and rear park distance control. Plus – benefit from a BIK rate of 12% with this model too.


2. Low running costs with no compromise on performance

The ever-improving range of MINIMALISM technologies is overwhelming proof that low running costs and tax efficiency don’t have to come at the expense of dynamic performance and driver appeal.

3. Go Electric and take advantage of 0% BIK

MINI’s first ever fully electric car launched earlier in the year, and it comes in the form of the 3-door Hatch. By switching to electric you can enjoy savings on fuel, road tax and congestion fees while reducing your carbon footprint. What’s more - 0g/km emissions mean company car drivers pay 0% BIK from April 2020. Win, win? We think so.

4. Stay connected

MINI Connected brings next-level connectivity to your car with a selection of voice-controlled technology that seamlessly connects you to range of intelligent services and apps. From concierge services to up-to-date traffic updates, it offers everything the working day demands.

5. Hassle-free servicing

Take a step back and let us take care of your car so you can take care of your business.
When ordering your MINI you have the opportunity to include maintenance with your monthly rental. We understand not all companies have a Fleet Manager to obtain tyre quotes, raise purchase orders and manage maintenance budgets for their company cars. In most cases these tasks fall to company managers, small business owners, or employees who have to fit these tasks in around their day to day responsibilities.
A maintained contract offers you and your company the convenience and reassurance of maintenance with a central point of contact. With total control over maintenance costs, you will never be faced with unexpected bills, can budget with confidence and manage company cash flow.


6. Dedicated one-on-one support

nderstanding which cars make sense for your business, and why, is a challenging task. That’s why when you choose Lloyd Group, our dedicated team will guide you through all aspects of fleet management.

7. Expect only the best customer service

Customer service is at the forefront of the company ethos at Lloyd Group, so you can always expect only the highest standard of customer service. Not only will we listen carefully to your needs and match you to the most suitable vehicle, we’ll be there for you after you have collected your new MINI, or fleet of MINIs, too.
All vehicles booked in for service or maintenance that do not require a replacement car or use of our collection and delivery service are guaranteed an appointment within seven working days. You’ll also receive a three-year unlimited mileage warranty covering any manufacturing defects, giving you total peace of mind.

8. Driving schools: MINI is ideal for learner drivers

Driving schools, take note: your business can benefit from the latest fuel-saving technology and safety features with MINI. Energetic and vibrant, MINIs are nimble, responsive and dynamic - the perfect companions for learner drivers (who wouldn’t want to learn to drive in a MINI?)
Low running costs make them the ideal business partner, too. For instance, the intelligent MINI 3-door Hatch Cooper Classic achieves an impressive fuel consumption of 52 mpg (combined) and CO2 emissions of just 131/km. What’s more - take advantage of a BIK rate of 29% with a monthly tax liability from only £84.15 per month*

9. Vehicles available for immediate delivery

We continually have a selection of new vehicles available for immediate delivery at Lloyd Group. Customers will still benefit from guidance from our corporate team as it’s needed, as well as compelling business rates.

10. Stand out from the crowd

MINI is the ultimate style icon. And what better way to get your business noticed than with the name of your business featured on your brand new MINI? Our corporate team can put you in touch with our local, tried and trusted sign-writing specialists who can help you create a design that will get your branding noticed in all the right ways.


Which MINI suits your business?

Whether you’re an estate agent, craft brewery, artist or hairdresser, we’ve got the perfect MINI to reflect the personality of your business.

MINI Hatch

The MINI 3-door Hatch is an icon. Add two more doors, and you have the 5-door with a touch more practicality. Both are an effortless example of the low-centre-of-gravity and exhilarating go-kart feel synonymous with the MINI brand.

Available with a suite of innovative features as standard to deliver a premium experience for fleet drivers, including Keyless Go, a 6.5″ colour infotainment screen and DAB digital radio.


MINI Convertible

With four fully-fledged seats and an electric soft top that takes just 18 seconds to operate, even while driving, the MINI Convertible is as unique as it is appealing.

High levels of standard specification include MINI Visual Boost with 6.5’’ infotainment screen, rear park distance control, Bluetooth, air conditioning and DAB digital radio.


MINI Clubman

Stay connected on the move with a suite of innovative technologies as standard, including MINI Connected - which links you up to news feeds, in-car apps, calendars and much more - and Bluetooth connectivity, which synchronises with your contacts and allows you to make calls safely, hands-free.


MINI Countryman

The SUV of the MINI range, the MINI Countryman offers a generous-sized boot for everything you might need to pack in for travelling to and from meetings, or for your commute. The impressive line-up of standard features including MINI Navigation, MINI Connected, Bluetooth, Emergency Call and DAB digital radio, equipping you with everything you need to keep your business moving.

The MINI Countryman is the only model in the range also available as a plug-in hybrid.


MINI Electric

An icon reimagined, the new MINI Electric is the best of both worlds, giving you the iconic character of MINI with all the benefits of going fully electric. The MINI 3-door Hatch is the first available with a fully electric powertrain. Emitting zero emissions and an all-electric range of up to 145 miles, it's the perfect combination of sustainable driving, thrilling driving performance and iconic MINI design.

As of April 2020, the BIK rate on the MINI Electric dropped to 0%, meaning it makes even more business sense to go electric.
