With R56 inventories dwindling and F56 deliveries delayed, it’s no surprise that overall MINI sales are down considerably.

“For January, MINI USA reports 2,543 automobiles, a decrease of 30.9 percent from the 3,682 sold in the same month a year ago. MINI USA is currently in transition from the current hardtop to the new model arriving in the second quarter.”
