The launch of the Mini 4x4 has been delayed again, according to reports.
Originally scheduled to be shown at this September's Frankfurt motor show, the 4x4's launch was put back to next January's Detroit motor show.
However, reports suggest that it has now been delayed until March's Geneva motor show, as the production facilities for the car are not yet in place.
The Mini, which is rumoured to be called either the Crossman or Countryman, will be built at Magna's plant in Austria.
However, in order to free up the capacity to do this BMW has to move its X3 production facilities to Spartanburg, South Carolina. This move has not yet been completed.
Nobody from Mini was available for comment.
