We recently heard from one of our always reliable sources that initial MINI Clubman production will be made up solely of One and Cooper models. We have yet to confirm this bit of new info but a staggered introduction wouldn’t be too surprising considering the logistical issues with introducing an entirely new model. Regardless of what model gets produced when, we can expect production to begin during the first week of August. According to our source, Cooper S and Diesel Clubmans should start production in December of 2007.
These first cars will most likely be demo and press vehicles with customer cars following shortly thereafter. US production should start in December with sales begining in February.
