MINI makes a van, a Clubvan, man

Mark Nichol

Boutique cake shop owners and self-confessed 'kooks' the world over are dancing in their Dr Martens right now, as MINI unveils their next company runabout: the MINI Clubvan concept. It will be MINI's star turn at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

The "amazingly practical" Clubvan is basically a Clubman sans the rear seats and side windows, giving it a "broader skill set to open up a new range of usage possibilities...among target groups not previously on the MINI radar," says MINI. So, it's targeted at traditional business users too.
