According to foreign media reports, BMW Group MINI brand senior vice president Ms. Wu Sizhuo (Stefanie Wurst) confirmed in an interview with the media, MINI CLUBMAN will soon stop production, there is no direct replacement.

In March, the MINI brand released a MINI CLUBMAN Final Edition version of the official model, which is scheduled to be delivered overseas in October, with a limited release of 1969 units worldwide. From the literal meaning of the name, it is not difficult to see that the literal translation of Final Edition is the "final version" model, and the number "1969" is actually the year in which MINI CLUBMAN was born, coupled with overseas media reports at the beginning of the year that MINI CLUBMAN will officially stop production in the first quarter of 2024, so it was widely believed at that time that this may herald the end of the MINI CLUBMAN car line.


With the further confirmation of Ms. Wu Sizhuo, senior vice president of the MINI brand of BMW Group, it is certain that MINI Clubman will stop production.

Combined with the previous MINI CLUBMAN Final Edition version of the official model map, the new car appearance design basically continues the cash model design style, but has been adjusted in the details, such as the new car added a lot of gold elements embellishment, the black brand LOGO with red S logo, visual effects are more recognizable. On the side of the body, the new car is blue as the main tone, gold as the embellishment, and the dense spoke-shaped wheels are colored in black gold, which looks quite stylish. At the same time, the new car is also available in white and silver. In addition, the new car also added a golden Final Edition and a "1979" logo to highlight the special identity of the model.

In the interior part, the overall layout of the new car is basically consistent with the current model, the car is mainly black and brown, and the seats are wrapped in gray leather with gray fabric materials. However, the new car LCD instrument does not use the traditional rectangular style design, but a more personalized oval structure, looks more exquisite. In terms of power, the new car offers a variety of options, including the ordinary version with the classic 1.5T turbocharged engine with a maximum power of 100kW and a 7-speed wet double clutch gearbox, while the high-performance version is equipped with a 2.0T turbocharged engine with a maximum power of 131kW.



The MINI brand was born in 1959. Ten years later, the MINI CLUBMAN was born and became the most MINI model in MINI. With the design style of six doors and opposite tail doors, the car became the only one in automobile design. It is understood that the original MINI CLUBMAN was launched in 1969, but at that time the MINI CLUBMAN was still a series, the basic version of the MINI CLUBMAN used the common two-door form, and the MINI CLUBMAN ESTATE model was the final form to support the series on its own.

In 1981, the first generation of MINI CLUBMAN officially stopped production, and then it was acquired by BMW. MINI resurrected CLUBMAN in 2007, code-named R55. In addition to the classic opposite rear door, a new opposite door design was added on the right side, and the right side was designed without B-pillar. Back passengers need to open the right front door before opening the back door.

At the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, the second-generation MINI CLUBMAN, code-named F54, is currently on sale and is based on the BMW UKL2 platform. Unlike the R55 model, which cancels the side-facing door design, the front door becomes four flat doors, while the classic opposite rear door is retained and the car has six doors. At present, the domestic price range is 275300-349600 yuan.



It should be noted that although the MINI CLUBMAN is a very important part of the development of MINI, but as a minority model, the market sales are very poor, coupled with the promotion of BMW Group electrification strategy, MINI brand transformation is fully electrified, in this context, MINI CLUBMAN production is also expected.

According to another report, including the new electric MINI Cooper, Aceman EV and the new electric MINI Countryman all appeared in the previous MINI brand new car preview activities, but did not see the MINI CLUBMAN, so there is news in the market that this may mean that the car will no longer launch a successor model.
