MINI emissions claim

Leigh Day is currently investigating whether MINI vehicles are also affected by the BMW emissions scandal.

Posted on 14 May 2021

Leigh Day is currently investigating whether MINI vehicles are also affected by the emissions scandal. It is envisaged that, if MINI vehicles are found to be affected, people who leased or owned MINI diesel vehicles may have a claim against BMW, the owner of MINI.

The claims are being investigated on behalf of people who leased or owned MINI diesel vehicles. The claims could be worth up to 75% of the purchase price of the vehicle for each owner.

Monitoring shows that when BMW vehicles are driven on the road, they emit many times more levels of toxic Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) gases than under test conditions.

This is extremely damaging, as increased levels of NOx contribute to air pollution which is reported to be the largest environmental risk to UK public health and is linked to as many as 64,000 early deaths a year.

You could be entitled to compensation if you leased or bought an affected vehicle. Register your interest in joining the claim here.

What is the BMW emissions claim?

We believe that the ‘defeat devices’ used in the BMW vehicles are unlawful under UK law and, consequently, there are potentially hundreds of thousands of unlawfully polluting vehicles still on the roads in the UK.

We believe that owners of the affected vehicles should be compensated because they were mis-sold these vehicles, which were advertised as being more environmentally friendly with lower NOx emissions. Increased levels of NOx emissions are harmful to the environment and to the health of children and adults.
