In recent years, there has been a sharp decline in the supply of convertible cars.
The trend does not appear to be about to change, so much so that Mini recently confirmed its convertible model is currently living on borrowed time. A decision that can be explained quite simply by low demand and higher production costs.
With the imminent departure of this model, “affordable” convertibles are becoming increasingly rare in Canada. The offer basically boils down to the Mazda MX-5, the Fiat 124 Spider, the Ford Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro.
During this In Studio capsule, Germain Goyer and Daniel Melançon discuss this decision by Mini and this gradual disappearance of convertibles.
