Mini reveals new Clubvan LCV
Mini has confirmed that the stylish concept van revealed at the Geneva Motor Show is to go into production.
Mini is to unveil its new commercial vehicle model called the Clubvan at this week’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Based upon the Clubman estate, the Clubvan gets the same twin rear door and side door configuration as the passenger car model, but gets a half-height bulkhead with upper steel mesh.
The Clubvan is capable of carrying a maximum 500kg payload, with a 1.150m load length and a total volume of 0.86m³, and features the same powertrain as the Clubman.
Three engines will be available from launch, with one diesel (112hp) and two petrol (98hp and 122hp) units. Manual, six-speed transmissions will be fitted as standard, but an optional six-speed automatic gearbox will also be available.
The loadspace also gets a more upmarket feel than your average LCV, with an anthracite roof liner and upholstered side walls. Six lashing points are located throughout the loadspace which also gets multiple 12v charging sockets.
Prices will start from £11,175 for the Mini One Clubvan, and will rise to £13,600 for the diesel Cooper model.
The new model is the company’s first commercial vehicle since the Mini name was relaunched under the BMW Group in 2001, and the seventh new BMW/Mini variant to enter production.
