MINI USA July Sales: The F56 Picks up Steam

MotoringFile Sections: Official News, Sales Aug 1st, 2014 28 Comments


The F56 is now officially killing it in terms of sales year over year in the all important US market. For months we’ve been waiting for a sales month that saw a full availability of the F56 at dealers. And while lots are still a little thinner than some would like, there’s clearly enough availability to sell more hardtops than last year. And that’s without the massive incentives that we saw throughout the R56’s model runout. However not all is well in the MINI range.

Worldwide MINI Sales down -9.6% for May 2014

MotoringFile Sections: Official News, Sales Jun 10th, 2014 15 Comments

MINI continues to struggle in building sales steam this year as the delayed F56 changeover and other new model production issues continue to hamper sales growth overall. Official statements say this downturn in year-over-year sales (and year-to-date sales which are down 12.4%) are inline with expectations due to the model changeover. We expect to see sales normalize later in the year and outpace previous sales F56 production is able to catch up to actual demand. We also expect that with the debut of the F55 four-door MINI fast approaching, overall sales are likely to rebound substantially.
