    Mini Clubvan Concept To Become Production Model, Come To U.S.

    At the Geneva Motor Show in March, Mini showed off a cargo van concept based on their Clubman called the Clubvan. The Clubvan drops the back seats and windows, and in their place comes in a flat load floor, steel grill to separate cargo and the front seats, and other items you expect in a cargo van.

    Car & Driver has learned that the Clubvan will go into production and come to the U.S. later this year as a 2013 model. The production model will come with a stainless-steel grille separating the passenger and cargo area, an aluminum cargo rail in the rear hold, six tie-down hooks, a cloth-trimmed load floor with a matching roof liner, and an integrated power socket in the cargo area.

    Mini says the Clubvan will offer increased load capacity compared with the Clubman, but didn’t give out a number.

    As for engines, Mini isn’t saying if the Clubman’s 121 HP naturally aspirated four, or if the Clubman S’s 181 HP turbocharged engine will be available.

    Too close to the original, and not possessing enough space to be a van.

    I think it would have made more sense to start with the Countryman, make it a two door and "van" it. Even call it the "CountryVan".

    WOW, The next must have vehicle for serial murders.

    The ClubVan, I wonder if it comes with it's own club to wack people into the secured back. ;)

    Course I could see dog lovers wanting this for their pets too.

    I will pass on it as it is way to small for us big guys.
