MINI pulls the plug on the Clubman image

MINI has recently stopped producing the Clubman despite its successor is still quite some time away from hitting the market.

The BMW owned brand MINI has recently stopped producing the Clubman despite its replacement is one year away from going official. The announcement hasn’t been made official just yet but according to the Dutch publication Telegraaf, the model in question has left the production line. Our source is saying that a production ready version of its successor is approximately one year away, but even so, the company will be introducing a concept car which will offer a preview on its replacement.

The second generation MINI Clubman concept will be officially presented to the public not at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, in October, but at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, in Paris. The replacement of the Clubman will be standing in at 26 cm longer and 17 cm wider than the current model and it is promising enough space to seat five adults. The model in question is believed to ride on the new BMW FWD platform, which is also used on the 2-Series Active Tourer and it should receive a new range of engines under its hood.
