MINI CONCEPTS.

The Original Mini of the 1950s was inventive and forward thinking, with a number of progressive design innovations that would help set new standards with regards to functionality, efficiency, and performance. Our passion for pushing the envelope and thinking beyond the needs of modern mobility continues today, and has produced some truly visionary creations. Below are a few compelling examples that underscore what is possible today, and what we can look forward to down the road.

THIS ONE’S FOR THE FEW.

THE NEW MINI JOHN COOPER WORKS GP CONCEPT.

Introducing the MINI John Cooper Works GP Concept, a vehicle that boldly captures MINI’s motorsport heritage and relentless commitment to push the boundaries.

Born on the track but conceived for the streets, the concept combines assertive JCW power with a pure race car aesthetic. Its aerodynamic exterior strikes an impressive balance between strength and beauty, with menacing angles and stunning carbon fibre details accentuating the lines of its bodywork. Inside, the cockpit is deliberately stripped down and features simple black and white trim contrasts, bolstered by a bright aluminum roll-cage. The doors and instrument panel are made using state-of-the-art 3D printed knitting techniques, opening up a world of unique possibilities for owner personalization.

More audacious and ambitious than anything else on the racetrack, this one’s for the few who dare to go further – faster.

BE ONE OF THE FEW.

ELECTRIC. ICONIC.

THE NEW MINI ELECTRIC CONCEPT.

Innovative design – electrified. The new MINI Electric Concept takes MINI’s distinctive style and handling and adds a progressive new dimension: emission-free mobility. Harnessing its energy from a lithium-ion battery, the concept’s electric motor produces zero emissions, all the while delivering instant drive response to add even more edge to MINI’s hallmark agility.

Its aesthetic is modern and purist, coupling aerodynamic lines with signature details that reflect the fact that it is electrically-powered. And while its wheels-pushed-out design is unmistakably MINI, its closed front grille, fibre glass accents, and silver-yellow colour scheme impart a style that is all its own. Forward-thinking yet familiar, sporty yet sustainable, the MINI Electric Concept offers a glimpse into how MINI’s characteristic driving fun can be translated for an age in which electric urban mobility is the norm.

THE AIR IS ELECTRIC.

THE MINI VISION <br class="hidden-xs" />NEXT 100.

THE MINI VISION NEXT 100.

Innovative thinking has always been embedded in MINI’s DNA. Tomorrow’s MINI taps into something even deeper. Tomorrow’s MINI will bring together a unique, personalized experience with shared ownership.

Enter the MINI VISION NEXT 100. In a future where a single vehicle can be shared amongst many, this visionary concept incorporates technology that enables the car to always look and feel like your own. Parts of the exterior surfaces transform to suit your preferences and even beam a personalized greeting as you approach the vehicle. The heart and mind of the MINI VISION NEXT 100 is the Cooperizer function – a coloured translucent instrument in the centre of the car – which communicates with the driver through dynamic changes in colour.

Over time, the MINI VISION NEXT 100 will adapt to your behaviour and enhance your driving experience, suggesting new locations to discover and inspiring routes to explore. Between journeys, the vision car will drive autonomously to a service hub, where it can be cleaned and recharged, before zipping off to meet another driver. The Cooperizer’s “inspire me” function also allows you to experience someone else’s personal driving mode – from friends, celebrities, and even visionaries – taking contemporary notions of connectivity and shared experience to an entirely new level.

MINI SUPERLEGGERA™<br  class='hidden-xs' /> VISION.

MINI SUPERLEGGERA™ VISION.

This exclusive interpretation of an open-top two-seater was developed by MINI in collaboration with Touring Superleggera – the tradition-steeped design and coach-building house based in Milan. The MINI Superleggera™ Vision combines classic and sporty roadster design cues with elegant handcrafted touches throughout. And while its aerodynamic profile and electric drivetrain provide distinctly modern driving dynamics, its pared-back, minimalist aesthetic articulates the emotional quality of motoring in its purest form.

MINI ROCKETMAN CONCEPT.

MINI ROCKETMAN CONCEPT.

The design of the MINI Rocketman Concept fuses innovative ideas for urban mobility with classical British design accents. The 3+1 seater, with an exterior length of just over three metres, is imbued with the timeless guiding principles of the brand: emotional design, clever functionality, driving excitement, and exceptional efficiency.

MINI BEACHCOMBER CONCEPT.

MINI BEACHCOMBER CONCEPT.

The MINI Beachcomber Concept is ideal for a spontaneous and active experience. It is designed without doors, or a conventional roof, and all other body elements that could limit the intensity of the occupants’ encounter with their surrounding world. This allows the driver and up to three passengers to connect with their surroundings – whether cruising through town, enjoying rugged off-road terrain, or breezing along the beach. The vehicle’s space concept, coupled with modern all-wheel drive technology, delivers a highly emotional driving experience.

MINI AUGMENTED VISION.

MINI AUGMENTED VISION.

Developed by MINI’s Research and Technology team, the MINI Augmented Vision eyewear prototype offers an insight into how intelligent connectivity between car and wearable technology may look in the future. Working in concert with the MINI Connected System, the eyewear projects relevant driving information such as navigation prompts and parking assistance into the driver’s direct field of vision, thereby serving to make driving safer, more convenient, and ultimately, more enjoyable.

MINI CITYSURFER ELECTRIC SCOOTER.

MINI CITYSURFER ELECTRIC SCOOTER.

The MINI Citysurfer Electric Scooter represents a dynamic and sustainable transportation solution for navigating tomorrow’s densely populated cities. Compact, lightweight, and quiet, it is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and engineered to achieve a top speed of 25 km/h. For added flexibility, it can easily fold to be carried on busses and trains, or stowed away in a MINI’s cargo compartment.
