Mini Clubvan might be too small to be a real delivery van

Article by Eugene Conan, on February 24, 2012

Mini will unveil a new concept that combines a panel van and its existing Clubman model at the Geneva Motor Show scheduled early next month. Mini dubbed the new Clubman rip-off the Clubvan, its latest addition to a number of variants for the model, which started as a three-door hatchback and has evolved into a convertible, two-passenger roadster, four-door crossover and other versions.

The Clubvan features four doors with a flat load compartment in lieu of a rear seat.  Mini placed a fence-like partition between the front set and the compartment to prevent cargo from flying forward when the driver brakes.

The windows are also closed for the purpose. Pictures of the Mini Clubvan concept reveal that it does not have enough space for large cargos. Mini, however, defended the small and limited cargo space, saying that the Clubvan concept is targeted at premium small businesses that want to make a statement. 

Mini reportedly will unveil a production version of the Clubvan concept later this year. With Mini unexpectedly creating a van concept, who knows what the brand will unveil next.
