Mini Draws Line, Won’t Build Any New Models – For a While, Anyway

One car company is putting a pause on making new cars for awhile. There is so much going on in this market and people are making many different decisions that are good and bad for their companies. Mini is not going to build any new models. This has shattered the hoped of people that wanted a certain car from them.

Key Takeaways:

  • Forget all about a Mini sedan, roadster, or even an extra-small two-seat hatchback. The British automaker isn’t having any of it.
  • Despite earlier reports to the contrary, Mini has no immediate plans to diversify its current lineup, preferring to wait until the next-generation Mini rolls along before going nuts
  • According to a company source who spoke with Top Gear, the economics weren’t working in favor of either the Rocketman or Superleggera.

“The automaker confirmed to Top Gear that the existing two-and four-door Cooper, Convertible, Clubman and Countryman will remain the only animals in the Mini stable until early next decade.”
