MINI's upcoming Countryman Coupe isn't the only new model on the carmaker's cards, with news this week that a production version of the recent Clubvan concept has been confirmed.

The Clubvan is closely related to the existing Clubman wagon, but with its back seat replaced by a flat load floor, rear windows filled in, and a cargo barrier added.

Billed as " the world’s first premium delivery van," the Clubvan is no mere showpony, with cargo capacity rated at 860 litres, 500kg payload and a cargo floor measuring 1150mm in length.

The filled-in rear windows are key criteria for recognition as a commercial vehicle by many regulatory bodies.

Engine options are familiar MINI fare, with both 72 and 90kW versions of the 1.6 litre petrol engine on offer, along with the 82kW 1.6 litre turbodiesel from the Cooper D hatch.

There’s no word of a performance-oriented Cooper S version just yet, but there's yet to come a MINI model that hasn't offered a sports variant.

The production Clubvan will make its first public appearance at next weekend’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.

 

Australia

UK deliveries will begin later this year, with Australian availability yet to be confirmed.

Chances for a local debut are likely to depend on demand - if you're keen, get on the horn to your local MINI dealer.
