End of Production: Mini Clubman boasts 1.1 million units made since 2007.
The end has come for the Mini Clubman. The final unit has been produced at the car manufacturer’s factory in Oxford, UK, as part of their efforts to modernize their offerings for a more electric-oriented tomorrow.
Last year, Mini unveiled the Clubman Final Edition in April, but later disclosed in September that a new model was not in the works. However, as the company restructures its portfolio, the Countryman will now serve as the de facto successor to the Clubman due to its strong demand. To complete the lineup, the all-new Aceman will be positioned below the Countryman.
Stefanie Wurst, leader of the Mini brand, stated last year that there was a significant difference in sales between the Countryman and Clubman models, with twice as many Countrymans being sold. This made it a straightforward choice to retain the Countryman in the Mini lineup. The current iteration of the Mini Clubman was first introduced in 2007, taking over from the beloved 1969 version which was in production until the early 1980s.
The latest addition to the Mini family, the Clubman, was a catalyst for the creation of the Mini Clubvan in 2013. It was also a noteworthy milestone as the first ever Mini model to feature all-wheel drive, with the Clubman All-4 making its debut in 2016. Since its launch in 2007, over 1.1 million Clubmans have been produced by the brand.
Although the Clubman is no longer available for purchase, Mini bid it farewell in style with the final edition. Only 1,969 units were produced globally, and less than 100 were allocated for the US market. Priced at approximately $50,000, this model caught attention with its unique Shimmer Copper detailing and accents. It also came equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, capable of delivering 186 horsepower and 206 pound-feet of torque.
