The MINI Concept Tokyo

After the success of the MINI Concept Frankfurt, MINI is launching a new interpretation of the classic MINI Traveller at the Tokyo Motor Show that reflects the Japanese appreciation for all things British.

The MINI Concept Tokyo will feature a new roof and cargo box system, as well as a new interior green colour scheme, alloy design and indicator lights sporting the Union Jack.

The concept is experimenting with access and storage solutions. The roof system houses a table and two chairs for impromptu picnics and weary guests at cricket matches. The cargo box in the rear of the car can be taken out and attached to the side window when open to create a table for serving tea and scones.

MINI went on sale in Japan in 2002 and is the fifth biggest market for the car after UK, US, Germany and Italy. MINI is on sale in over 70 countries worldwide and year-to-date sales have increased by 12 per cent to 159,413 in 2005.
