The car’s proportions are essentially the Mini’s classic proportions, but accentuated by a series of styling accents that make it modern and distinctive. The Mini Concept Aceman is envisioned as a new production model, a small crossover coming in 2024 that is smaller than the Countryman.
It is 405 cm long, 199 cm wide and 159 cm high. It uses an elongated version of the new Spotlight architecture, which is the platform that will form the basis of the next-generation electric Mini hatchback, jointly developed by BMW and Chinese partner Great Wall.
The design team describes the thesis behind the design of the Mini Concept Aceman as Charismatic Simplicity. This means it has a two-volume shape with the added charisma of sharp edges and athletic shoulders. There is a dynamic lighting system at the rear of the vehicle that can create different designs. The headlights are no longer round but have a more square shape, the taillights are in the form of a Union Jack motif.
As on the exterior, Mini tried to protect its ecological footprint by not using leather in the interior. On the contrary, for the Mini Concept, Aceman uses a combination of sustainable fabrics with elements such as armchairs whose surfaces have a three-dimensional appearance thanks to the combination of plain knit fabric, velvet velvet and waffle weave.
The main technological feature of the new Mini Concept Aceman is the round shaped screen with oled technology. For the first time for the brand, it will be based on the latest generation Mini operating system built on the Android Open Source Project software stack.
