The quirky Mini Clubman has left the assembly line for good, and it's one that will surely be missed. With production now finished at the brand's Oxford, U.K. plant, Mini will now look ahead to reconfiguring its lineup to include a slew of new electric models, including the new Aceman crossover, which will take the Clubman's place in the portfolio.



While the Clubman moniker first came about in 1969, the modern reinterpretation of the funky four-door was first introduced in 2007. Mini says it has built over 550,000 modern Clubmans since then, and around 1.1 million Clubmans have been made in total since 1969.


While sales were rather strong at the beginning, with 42,011 units sold in the U.S. in 2007, that number has since been cut in half with only 20,974 Clubmans sold last year. The larger Countryman, which has just been renewed for a third generation, moved twice the amount of vehicles off the lot last year compared to the Clubman. With that in mind, it makes sense why the more traditional SUV body style of the Countryman will be carried over to the Clubman's forthcoming Aceman successor.



Last year, the Clubman was given a thorough farewell with the release of a Final Edition model. Only 1,969 units were produced, and fewer than 100 of those models have found their way to U.S. shores. This special edition is marked by Shimmer Copper accents, while still packing the Clubman's standard 2.0 liter turbo-four that makes 186 hp and 206 lb-ft of torque.


Meanwhile, the Mini Aceman EV, which will serve as the Clubman's replacement, is expected to make its debut later this year.
