Mini Clubvan concept to be revealed at Geneva Motor Show

Mini will reveal a new concept at Geneva International Motor Show 2012 – The Mini Clubvan Concept – the brand's first premium model in the small car-based van segment.

The Clubvan concept opens the door to a completely new market for Mini, premium small businesses.

The flat load area which reaches from the split rear doors right up to a partition grille behind the two seats makes full use of the interior’s depth. Six attachment loops recessed into the load floor use elasticated straps to hold cargo in place. The fixed partition grille, made from solid aluminium in the lower part and a stainless steel honeycombe grating, ensures items stowed in the rear won’t fall into the front cabin. The side walls, floor and roof lining of the load area in the Concept are trimmed in high-quality anthracite-coloured cloth.

Just like the Mini Clubman, the Clubvan Concept is a five-door car with a twist. Two front doors for the driver and front passenger, two side-hinged rear doors and the rear-hinged Clubdoor on the right-hand side all create useful access. The Clubdoor gives owners the option of loading smaller items from the side of the car as well as the rear.

The Mini Clubvan Concept shares the same exterior dimensions as the Mini Clubman.
