In a recent interview, MINI CEO Kay Segler confirmed plans to launch three new models by the end of the decade.

He declined to go into detail, but told Automotive News the models will likely be based on BMW's front-wheel drive UKL platform which will also underpin the next-generation Cooper.

It remains unclear what the vehicles will be, but previous reports have indicated the company will launch a production version of the Rocketman concept in 2014.

MINI is also slated to launch a Countryman Coupe in early 2013. Previewed by the Paceman concept, the production model will have aggressive styling and a sloping roofline.
