Mini has announced that the 2013 Clubvan that only recently went on sale in the United States has been canceled. I'd wager that only ardent Mini fans knew the van had launched in the US. Sales for the Clubvan were far from stellar with reports indicating only 50 units were sold in the entire country.
The Clubvan was a Mini Cooper Clubman with the rear side windows replaced with aluminum and no backseat. Mini blames poor demand and "an excess of tax of 25% on commercial vehicles" as reasons for the abysmal sales for the Clubvan.
Mini says that sales of the Clubvan in other parts of the world have been strong. Ensure one of the reasons for the lack of popularity for the vehicle was the fact that it had a very limited truck space of only 33 cubic feet.
