The much loved mini van which ceased production 30 years ago is set to return to the commercial vehicle market. BMW who own the mini brand are calling it the Mini Cargo which is set to make it debut at the 2012
Aimed at the style conscious business owner the new model van won’t have a new body shape but instead will utilise the current mini clubman base. The back and side windows will be removed and replaced by metal panels along with the rear seats to make way for a flat loading floor. It unsure yet whether the roof height will be adjusted to make way for more cargo.
Small commercial vans are already popular in the UK and throughout Europe so another addition to the market that looks just like a stylish mini is likely to be welcomed. Though its limited cargo area won’t suit all businesses it will make the perfect pizza delivery vehicle and may make an ideal vehicle for the style conscious florist.
