Mini Clubvan Concept for Geneva

Mini will be showing a new ‘Clubvan’ concept at Geneva in March, showcased as ‘a compact van for business and leisure, and the first premium model in the small car-based van segment’.

Seen as a spiritual successor to the Morris Mini Van from the 1960’s, the Clubvan has just two seats, but behind them a flat load space, six attachment loops, elastic straps, and an aluminium grille between the cabin and load space.

Unlike all other commercial vehicles, the rear is trimmed with a ‘high-quality anthracite-coloured cloth’, which we think will just give the owner something else to clean, but it does lend itself well to the idea of this being a luxury car.

The concept is finished in British Racing Green, but if the car ever goes to market Mini should offer a choice of paint, as nice as racing green is.

For practicality, the Clubvan has two rear doors, one load space side door, and the obvious doors for passenger and driver.

More details will be available at Geneva.
