Report: The next generation Mini Clubman to surface sometime in 2015

Australia’s CarAdvice recently heard about the production version of the Mini Clubman, which could surface as early as 2015.

First introduced as a concept for the second generation at the 2014 Geneva Auto Show, the Mini Clubman seeks to continue its mission as the more practical and spaciously elongated Mini Cooper. This is rather interesting because the original Clubman wasn’t exactly a smash hit and ceased production almost one year ago because of it. Though while the first version of the Clubman came with pickup-truck like suicide doors, the Mini Clubman Concept from Geneva actually sports four passenger doors and a fifth for the rear boot. Is the difference enough for Mini to once again produce the Clubman?

According to CarAdvice, it may be, but not until September of 2015, where it’s scheduled to debut in production form at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The structure should come from BMW’s latest UKL platform, the same as the new Cooper, though in a complete different configuration to the regular hatch.

The production Clubman hasn’t been confirmed just yet, but should it reach dealers in 2015, a suspected John Cooper Works range-topper may also find its way into showrooms shortly thereafter.
