The Clubvan Concept revives a piece of Mini’s history while aiming to create a premium business vehicle offer.
Ahead of the formal debut at the 2012 Geneva Auto Show in March, Mini has released photos and information on their new Clubvan concept. The brand seems to have explored every adaptation of the Mini already but still seems to find new directions to morph the original car. The Clubvan concept is a take on a premium delivery vehicle for small business owners. The concept takes inspiration from Morris Mini Van produced in the 1960’s. This concept has two seats and an open cargo area which can be accessed by side and rear doors.
The exterior is essentially the same as the current Mini Clubman except the rear side glass has been replaced with opaque Polycarbonate panels to screen the cargo area. While the original Mini has a long heritage of sporting unique roof graphics, it has evolved into the Mini Roof Studio, the Clubvan has rather tame business branding applied.
