The Mini Clubvan concept has been unveiled at the Geneva motor show, five years after the Mini Clubman went on sale.
The Mini Clubvan concept is an extremely straightforward Clubman derivative. The Clubman’s side windows have been replaced with polycarbonate panels and the load bay has been moderately increased in size.
It is described by BMW as a ‘compact lifestyle van for business and leisure – the first concept of its kind in the premium segment’. The elegantly sign-written exterior was created for BMW by the real Hugh Buckingham of Southport.
The Clubvan is a strict two-seater. The Clubman's rear seats and false boot floor have been removed. In their place is a continuous, deeper load bay with six load attachment points and 12V charging sockets. The rear doors are very darkly tinted. Inside, the only significant addition for the concept is a bespoke aluminium and stainless steel load bay partition to protect the driver.
