MINI’s Future Product Roadmap (Updated)

We’ve noticed quite a few questions in our comments over the last few months from those trying to make sense of all the new models and refreshes coming from MINI. While we’ve spelled it out in various reports over the past few years we thought we’d re-post some of that here in quick-guide form for future reference.

So with that said let’s take a look at what each year will bring.

2010

2011

  • R60 North American Launch (March)
  • R58 Roadster Worldwide Launch (Late Spring)
  • R59 Coupé Worldwide Launch (Summer)

2012

  • R56 Limited Edition JCW (only a rumor at this point)
  • R60 SpaceBox (only a rumor at this point)

2013

2014

2015

  • MINI Moke based on the R60 (only a rumor at this point)

From here it gets fuzzy. We know that MINI is considering basing the next Clubman off of the R60 Countryman platform but we don’t have any specific time-frame on that change other than a vague guess of 2014 or 2015. Then there’s the replacement of the Coupé and the Speedster. We expect sales to be the final judge on whether or not they’ll need replacements and that won’t happen until around 2019.

For further reading on MINI’s upcoming roadmap be sure to check out our report from last year. Also check back later this week for some of the latest news on the Coupé and Roadster twins.

    You tease me with details on the R59. Why must you do this? Ha!

  • CraigE

    Are the launch times for the R58-59 for the European market or North American market?

  • lavardera

    Maybe the Clubman will grow into a car (not suv) based vehicle based on the R60. This would give Mini something closer to the Golfs, Mazda3s, etc its always compared to.

  • hardingsan

    i think that’s what the spacebox is supposed to be…

  • MINIme

    If the rumored MOKE is anywhere along the lines of the Beachcomber, I’ll wait. But why should we have to wait? The concept has been built and received a favorable response. Couldn’t MINI just go ahead and produce the vehicle while there is still some buzz around it??

    So not only are we a year out from getting the Countryman…but we are a year out from the Oxford Twins as well!!! There is going to be a lot of attnetion on MINI next year… When will we have a production version available of the Coopster and Roadster? If we are so close to availability you guys must know something…come on Gabe…

    They are working on presenting three four MINI Concepts over the next three years. The first is the Performance MINI Countryman in which the changes applied include wider wheelarches front and rear and different front bumper which relies on providing more air.

    The Second is the Vision MINI which is said to be an interpretation of the next MINI but in a very basic , aerodynamic futuristic form , like the Concept Vision Efficient Dynamics.

    The Third is the MINI SpaceBox , based off the Countryman it is the anti-thesis to a conventional five dr or MPV MINI.

    The Fourth which they have started working on and now committing to clay is a five dr Coupe-like Concept, Some say it reminds them of a Saab because of it’s swoopy shape. It has five drs and completely wrap around glass from the widshield to the rear screen.

    I am told this is being put forward for competition because MINI should not offer a conventional hatch or sedan, It should be something that sets MINI apart from other brands and not commit to using the same formula as traditional compact competitors.

    Phew they are busy… but I’m running out of years ahead to fully appreciate 10 year plans… We want them now – not “in the year 2525 if man is still alive…”

    I’m counting down the minutes until I can motor in my Coopster.

  • BartMack

    I wanted a speedster really bad during the 1st gen run… but after all this time I’ve still not warmed to the current dash. It’s just lost the incredible charm the 1st gen interior had for me. Fix that more better, and maybe I’ll shop MINI again next time around.

  • danny

    Maybe 2nd gen roadster.. still can not believe they did not round the back end more.

    :(

  • JonPD

    Yep MINI is a BMW owned company!!!!

    “The first is the Performance MINI Countryman in which the changes applied include wider wheelarches front and rear and different front bumper which relies on providing more air.”

    Taking the largest and heaviest vehicles and tuning them to be the most bloated form possible within a brand. I would much rather MINI taking the time to make the JCW brand a little less than a half measure when your talking performance.

  • dc11

    I dont get the rationale behind it. Ive been waiting for the next gen GP to come out. But now we’re not getting it… instead they gave us this JCW that is anemic.

    So I said to myself, I’ll just wait till they wake up and come out with a TRUE JCW worthy of the brand JCW..

    and on this roadmap, shows theyre going to introduce it on the last year of the product cycle… much like they did on the GP with the 1st gen new Mini.

    Why the hell would i want to finally buy the car ive been waiting for since day one, just do have it be outdated in 10 months time??? that makes no damn sense.

    Give us the damn car in its proper form at least during the mid-life refresh so we can enjoy our purchase!

  • Herr26

    It is a JCW but it will be closely related to the imminent WRC car. It looks fantastic though. If you can relate to how MINI and Porsche are on a similar parallel then this is our Cayenne Turbo.

    Say what you will about the current JCW (and believe me we think it could use an upgrade) but it is faster than the GP on the ‘Ring and elsewhere.

    does that mean we’ll get a panamera turbo someday too? that would make me happy…

  • JonPD

    Herr26 I am just part of a the fraction of the owners that laugh at the /M Suvs and Cayenne Turbo. Yes you can pack enough power to make the most bloated vehicles a brand make to make it quick.

    For me personally the GP is the only “performance” car MINI has ever produced. Agreed its not the quickest but it was not left short of being a fully developed car like the current generation JCW. I can’t wait to see the highest performance factory car is going to be yet another modified mom wagon.

    I am looking forward to r58 & r59
