MINI Paceman at the LA Auto Show 2012

It’s the calm before the storm as MINI prepares to launch one of the most important models in its history late this year with the F56. But for now we’re focused on the current line-up with the Paceman recently joining the ranks and doing rather well.

Official Release: With 24,581 vehicles delivered in April, worldwide sales for MINI increased by 3.3% (prev. yr. 23,794). In the month under review, MINI achieved solid growth in retail sales in some of its key markets such as Great Britain/Ireland (3,393/ +43.6%), and China (2,038/ +7.0%). The new MINI Paceman has had a successful start with around 1,500 vehicles delivered to customers since its launch in mid-March. Year-to-date, MINI sales are around last year’s level with 90,737 units sold in the first four months (prev. yr. 92,005/ -1.4%).
