Today, the first official photos of the new 2012 MINI Clubvan Concept was revealed ahead of its world premiere at the 2012 Geneva Auto Show in March. It is the segment is relatively new in the United States, and the company bills it as the first premium offering in the small car-based van segment.
MINI Clubvan Concept with the most notable difference being the removal of the rear passenger seats and the opaque polycarbonate panels in place of the rear wide windows. In total there are two seats, five doors, and a practical load area that reaches from the split rear doors right up to the partition grille behind the two seats.
“The load area reaches from the split rear doors right up to the partition grille behind the two seats,” Mini said in a statement. “The totally level floor makes full use of the interior’s depth, and that allows the concept car’s load capacity to exceed the maximum achieved by the MINI Clubman.”
MINI describes it as a compact lifestyle van for business or leisure, but did not mention what engine powers its concept car.
