November 2015 YTD Mini USA Car Sales: 53% Of Minis Sold In America Have Four Doors

Over the first 11 months of 2015, 53% of the Minis sold in America are of the four-door variety.

That figure includes 13,942 Mini Cooper Hardtop 4-Doors and the Mini Countryman's 14,538 sales.


That figure is about to rise, as the number of sales produced by the upcoming wagon-like Clubman, itself a four-door model, hits the market. The Clubman will steal sales from the Cooper 4-Door and Countryman, but not so many that it won't increase the overall number of sales produced by Mini's bigger models.

The Cooper 4-Door's arrival late last year has certainly had a huge impact on sales of the 2-Door Cooper. Consider November's results, as sales of the Cooper Hardtop 4-Door jumped from 235 in 2014 to 1325 in November 2015, while U.S. sales of the Cooper Hardtop 2-Door plunged from 2633 units – as the 4-Door launched – to 1460 units in November 2015.
