MUNICH -- BMW's Mini brand will add a five-door station wagon, a van and possibly a notchback sedan to its lineup by 2020, a source told Automobilwoche, Automotive News' German sibling publication.
The station wagon will be based on a new BMW Group front-wheel-drive platform that debuts with the second-generation Mini Cooper hardtop in 2014. The van will share a platform with the Mini Countryman.
But a BMW insider said there has been no final decision on the notchback sedan, which the company is considering for the Chinese market.
"The Mini sedan is now being hotly debated," the source said.
Kay Segler, Mini's global brand boss, said at the Detroit auto show last month that three models will be added by the end of the decade, but he did not identify the vehicles.
Mini currently sells five models. A sixth, the Roadster, will arrive in U.S. dealerships this month. A coupe version of the four-door Countryman crossover, called the Countryman Coupe, will be launched here in the first quarter of 2013. It debuted as the Paceman concept at the 2011 Detroit auto show.
