Meaning and history

Minelli Automotive’s story begins in 1961 in Pfäffikon, founded by Herr Minelli in the field of mechanical engineering. Later, his son Reto Minelli took over the leadership. In 1995, the company started working on an automobile, resulting in two prototypes exhibited at the Geneva Auto Salon in 1998 under the brand name Minelli. The subsequent production lasted until 2001, with about 30 vehicles produced annually. After 2001, Bloch Autotechnik took over the project. This journey reflects a blend of engineering innovation and a passion for automotive design, rooted in a family business’s legacy.
