MINI had a unique entrant in the small cargo van area. Taking their Clubman wagon,MINI removed the backseat and blacked out the windows to create the Clubvan. MINI said the model would go on sale in the U.S. sometime this year. The Clubvan did go on sale and then left. Wait, what?
According to MINI USA Communications Manager Nathalie Bauters said the MINI Clubvan was sold in the U.S. for short time. Sales totaled 50 Clubvans. So why did MINI pull the Clubvan from the U.S.? Blame the 25 percent Chicken Tax on commercial vehicles.
