Mini Clubman: It's the End

Even though we suspected it for some time, it is now official: the Mini Clubman will not return after 2024. It must be said that Mini had given us a hint earlier this year with the Clubman Final Edition. For now, there is no talk of a next generation or even a replacement model.

The Mini Clubman was introduced to the market in 2007. This variant of the legendary Mini aimed to be more practical with its extended cargo space and its split rear hatch, somewhat like commercial vans, which is very rare for a mainstream vehicle and is what added charm and notoriety to the model.

The first generation of the Mini Clubman was produced from 2007 to 2015. During this period, Mini produced a range of special editions and concepts based on the Clubman. One of the most notable ones is the Mini Cooper S Clubman Airstream Concept presented in May 2009 at the Milan International Furniture Fair.

The second generation of the model arrived in the market in 2015 and will soon be withdrawn from the market. This latest generation allowed the British manufacturer to push the concept even further by offering a JCW version, which, for those who don\'t know, is the designation applied to Mini\'s ultimate performance versions.

A Global Departure

While the Mini Clubman is leaving the global market after 2024, it has been absent from Canada since the beginning of the year. Indeed, the model is not in Mini\'s Canadian lineup this year. However, there was hope that the model might reintegrate the British manufacturer\'s range in the near future. Now, we are certain that it won\'t be returning here as it will be withdrawn from all the other markets where it was still present.

An Electric Future

Although no official information has been released on the subject, it is believed that the Mini Clubman could certainly make a comeback in the form of a 100% electric car in the coming years. It\'s important to remember that Mini\'s electrification plan states that all its vehicles will be 100% electric by 2030.
