MINI was born out of many ideologies. One of the most important (and influential) is the idea of being bigger on the inside than the outside. With the upcoming Traveller. MINI intends to take this idea to the max.

Code-named “Spacebox” the Traveller (the name isn’t final) will be based on the front wheel drive BMW Compactive Sport Tourer. The idea (for both but especially the Traveller) is all about increasing practicality and flexibility for a customer who would have had to to move to another brand because they’ve simply run out of space.

In order to show how the MINI brand can be accomodated with a concept that is less van in appearance – The MINI Traveller will be shown as a Concept car in the not-so-distant future to showcase how innovation is achieved not only from the outside but also from the inside.

The theme for the Traveller is very much “Access all areas” and uses the typical MINI solutions to passenger access such as rear-hinged doors and barn doors which could be configured Clubman style or in a 60/40 opening allowing smaller bags to be stored via a smaller door and vice versa.

BMW believe that MINI, with it’s innovative approach to access, furthers and distinguishes it’s identity from its forthcoming BMW siblings.
