Mini Concept Aceman hints at a beefy new EV crossover


The Aceman reinterprets Mini’s signature design elements to reflect crossover characteristics and battery-power drive. The four-door concept, which seats five, hints at roomier Minis that take advantage of a skateboard architecture possible with electric powertrains.

Its two-box design with short overhangs maximizes interior roominess in a compact exterior footprint that measures 159.45 inches long and 78.35 inches wide. Extended edges on the lower body, contoured wheel arches, large wheels and a roof rack accentuate its crossover looks.

The closed grille is surrounded by clear surfaces, with the traditionally hexagonal outline tweaked into an octagonal contour.

The design is accentuated by LED contour lighting in light green, hinting at the vehicle’s powertrain.

The headlights move away from the classic round shape, while vertical taillights feature matrix LED units.

When the vehicle is unlocked, the LED lights on the grille surface display a Union Jack graphic, and the right headlamp gives what Mini calls a “friendly wink.”
