Mini plans to add several models to its lineup. Here are the product plans for the BMW-owned small-car brand.
Mini E: A battery-powered Mini is expected, but the timetable has not been revealed. The automaker has selected 450 people in New York, New Jersey and California to evaluate the electric model for one year.
Mini Cooper: The redesigned convertible debuted this year, featuring a roll bar behind the rear seat that pops up during a rollover.
The convertible receives the new-generation, 1.6-liter four-cylinder en-gine that ranges from 118 hp for the naturally aspirated version to 172 hp for the S version with a twin turbocharger. The coupe and Clubman already have those engines.
Clubman: The three-door Clubman is expected to be restyled, possibly in 2012.
Small coupe: Mini plans to build a two-seat coupe based on the concept introduced last month at the Frankfurt auto show. U.S. sales could begin in 2011.
The coupe concept is based on the convertible but has a shorter wheelbase and no rear seat.
Roadster: A soft-top version of the coupe concept also debuted in Frankfurt. A production version could go on sale in 2011.
Crossover: Under development is a small, four-passenger crossover that adapts BMW's rear-drive X1 architecture. Sales begin in 2011. All-wheel drive will be offered.
