MINI Clubvan leaves the U.S. image

MINI has recently announced the withdrawn of the Clubvan in the U.S. auto market because of the extremely weak demand.

After it was officially unveiled more than a year ago, and launched in several markets worldwide, the MINI Clubvan is entering our news once again, this time with the British based automaker making an announcement. According to the car manufacturer, the MINI Clubvan will be withdrawn from the United States because of the poor demand for the car. The 25 percent tax on vehicles for commercial use has also affected its sales.

As a quick reminder, the MINI Clubvan is based on the Clubman but it can also be considered a successor of the Morris Mini Van from the 1960s. The model in question has the same exterior design and cabin as the Clubman, including the speedometer and the rev meter. The Clubvan is available with units ranging between 98 HP and 122 HP, or with the 112 HP Cooper D diesel. The engine chosen will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission in standard, or to a six-speed automatic, available as an option. The model also has features like the automatic climate control, xenon headlights, leather upholstery and more.
