The Mini Clubvan Concept has been launched at the Geneva Motor Show 2012.

The Clubvan is based on the current Clubman, which has been on sale for five years.

The concept car does without the Clubmans side rear windows, which have been replaced with polycarbonate panels, while the rear door windows have been heavily tinted.

It is strictly a two-seater, and has a bespoke aluminium and stainless steel loadbay partition. The Clubvan's loadbay capacity is expected to be larger than the Clubmans 920 litres. This is due to the removal of the Clubman's rear seats and false boot floor.

The small, rear-hinged Clubdoor behind the drivers door and side-hinged rear doors are carried forward.

The Clubvan has black-coloured cloth for the side walls, floor and roof lining.

A production Clubvan is expected to appear in showrooms later this year.
