MINI Clubvan, based on the Clubman, going to Geneva image

The BMW sub-brand MINI is currently planning to launch a new model, in a world premiere, at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in March, named the MINI Clubvan.

Even if there is no official word on the model yet from MINI, Auto Motor und Sport is currently writing that the MINI Clubvan will make its official debut next month, at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. Our source is also telling us that the MINI Clubvan is actually based on the Clubman, but instead of the rear seats, some panels will be added and these will turn the rear end of the model into a cargo van, developed for services such as pizza deliveries. Unfortunately we don’t have any more details on the MINI Clubvan but we will keep you updated on the subject.

As a reminder, the MINI Clubman has been in production ever since 2007 and it’s currently being sold in the Estate class. The MINI Clubman is coming in a front engine, front-wheel drive layout, and the model has a choice of three units and two transmissions, the six-speed manual and the six-speed automatic. The MINI Clubman is 3,937 mm long, 1,684 mm wide and 1,425 mm tall, with a wheelbase of 2,548 mm.
