According to a recent report, MINI will build a production version of the Paceman concept.

Speaking with Automotive News, BMW board member Ian Robertson said "We will take this car into engineering now and over the next few months we'll firm up the exact launch date for it."

Oddly enough, Robertson also remarked the Paceman would go into production sometime after the Countryman Coupe is launched later this year. This is a little strange as the Paceman itself is essentially a Countryman coupe, so it will be interesting to see how MINI differentiates the two models.

Regardless, the production Paceman will have a "very, very strong" resemblance to the concept and likely offer a full assortment of engines.
