The new king of miniature, practical work vans?
We reported earlier this year on Mini’s new light commercial vehicle, the dinky little Clubvan delivery vehicle, is gearing up to make its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed later this week. Based on the existing Clubman, mini have stripped the cabin and removed the side windows to create miniature van.
Reminiscent of the miniature goods vehicles of old, Mini’s cute little light commercial vehicle has a payload of 500kg and 860 litres of cargo area. The split gatefold door at the rear of the vehicle gives the Clubvan an individual look and maintains the ‘updated retro’ theme that Mini have tried to capture with the vehicle.
Space, Speed and environmentally friendly
The Mini Clubvan will be available in three models; the One, the Cooper and the Cooper D. The first of the three will feature 98 horsepower petrol engine, while the Cooper option will provide the most power at 122 horsepower. The Cooper D model will provide 112 horsepower and will be the only model to run on diesel.
The Clubvan will be released in autumn but eager Mini fans can check it out at the Goodwood Festival of Speed between the 29th of June and the 3rd of July. Those interested in purchasing one of the models – available in white, blue, green and black – can expect to pay £11,175 for the Mini One Clubvan, £12,475 for the Cooper and £13,600 for the diesel Cooper D Clubvan.
