As of August 2nd, MINI has begun producing the new 2008 Clubman. The first cars will be going to the press and dealer launch programs as well as a number of other promotional related events. The first cars will go on-sale in the UK and Europe on November 10th of this year. The US should follow that release with a mid-February launch of their own. Expect countries like Australia and South Africa to follow shortly afterwards.

Once the new car has been introduced worldwide look for MINI to add a MINI One Clubman and potentially offer the dealer installed JCW kit as well.
