Mini is globally known for making small compact hatchbacks and SUVs. It has recently unveiled its all-new all-electric Aceman Concept. When it goes into production, this crossover will be positioned between the Mini hatchback and Countryman SUV. It will be interesting to see it in production-guise, as this concept showcases the carmaker’s future design language. Here’s a sneak-peek of the same.
Firstly, we won’t have to wait a lot for the Mini Aceman EV Concept, as it is scheduled to make its live debut at Gamescom 2022 in Cologne, Germany this month.
Dimensions-wise, it measures 4.05m in length, 1.99m in width, and 1.59m in height. As a result, it’s 4cm longer than the Mini Cooper and 4cm taller than the Countryman.
Though this concept showcases the brand’s futuristic design language, the carmaker has retained many of its signature styling elements. Hence, it’s instantly recognisable as a Mini.
On the contrary, there are a bunch of new design updates that give it that added appeal. This includes a set of re-designed headlights and the front grille section that feature a panel with an LED outline.
This Aceman EV rides on 20-inch wheels and boasts a muscular side profile. This is all thanks to a black cladding on the wheel arches and doors. The car also gets a prominent shoulder line.
Round at the back, there’s a tailgate spoiler. And despite the wide array of changes all over, the tail lamps retain the Union Jack-inspired lighting elements reminding you it’s a Mini.
Inside the Aceman EV concept’s cabin, the carmaker has followed a minimalistic design. Yet, there’s the colourful upholstery made from sustainable materials adding some spunk to the cabin.
Most interestingly, you’ll see a large centrally-mounted circular OLED screen with similar bright colours. It uses Mini’s latest operating system.
Now, Mini hasn’t revealed the electric powertrain specifications on the Aceman EV concept, However, we expect them to be disclosed at the live show in Germany later this month.
