Dutch company VDL Nedcar has not received an order for a new Mini Countryman from BMW, which owns the British brand.

As a reminder, this Dutch plant has been producing Countryman since 2016. BMW stressed that the reason for this decision was the coronavirus pandemic.

Representatives of the company in the Netherlands emphasize that the German automaker has announced plans to start production of the updated Countryman at a plant in Germany.

Recall that the Countryman model has gone through an intermediate update this year, and the new generation of the cross will be demonstrated only in a few years. In turn, the Countryman is also produced at the German company’s factories in countries such as India, Malaysia and Indonesia.

It is worth saying that the Mini Countryman is the first Mini with a 5-door body under the BMW umbrella. The debut of this car took place in March 2010. At the same time, sales of the model started in September of the same year.

In addition, it was recently noted that the Mini brand showed an exclusive modification of the JCW Nightfall Edition. It should be said that the new version of the British 3-door hatchback will be sold exclusively in Australia.
