The British based automaker MINI is planning to put the Paceman Concept into production, and this might hit the market as the Countryman Coupe.
Even if there is no official word on a possible production version of the MINI Paceman just yet, rumors are saying that the model might be assembled as the Countryman Coupe and it’s expected to hit the market in 2014, but it might actually make its way into the real world sooner because it can follow the example of the MINI Rocketman, which was scheduled to debut in 2016. The all-new MINI Countryman Coupe will have a larger wheelbase and it will be compact, which will probably bring some new challenges to the automaker in terms of maneuverability and impact strength.
Sadly we don’t have any more details on the MINI Countryman Coupe but before this model will hit the market, another vehicle just rolled off the assembly line and made its world debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show as the Clubvan, a commercial version of the popular Clubman. As a reminder, the MINI Paceman concept was 4,11 meters long, 1,79 meters wide and 1,54 meters tall, being powered by a 1.6 liter turbo engine which developed 211 horsepower.
