First previewed in Geneva earlier this year, MINI has announced the MINI Clubvan production version. Billed as the world's first premium compact delivery van, the Clubvan converts the Clubman passenger vehicle into something more appropriate for commercial use.
To accomodate the likes of short-haul delivery businesses such as florists, pizza restaurants and couriers, the Clubvan features a closed-off cargo area which sees the removal of the rear seats. For quick loading, the Clubman doors provide easy access from a wide-opening split rear hinged door as well as passenger side Clubdoor. Also most noticeable are the opaque, blocked-out rear side windows to help conceal the precious cargo from prying eyes.
The MINI Clubvan will be available in three model versions: the 72 kW/98 hp MINI One Clubvan, the 90 kW/122 MINI Cooper Clubvan and the 82 kW/112 hp MINI Cooper D Clubvan and will hit the showrooms in autumn 2012.
