The all-new MINI Clubvan has picked up its first award after winning the Editor’s Choice award at the 2013 What Van? Awards. Commended for delivering style, efficiency and class-leading driving dynamics not usually found in light commercial vehicles, the Clubvan has already made a big impression on industry experts just months after its initial unveiling at Goodwood Festival of Speed earlier this year. “The arrival of the MINI Clubvan is the most exciting and charismatic entrance into the light commercial vehicle arena for many years, offering small businesses in particular the opportunity to run a vehicle that combines workman-like light van practicality with a style not currently available, and that’s without mentioning MINI’s unrivalled driving pleasure and good fuel efficiency,” said What Van? Editor Paul Barker. “It’s fair to say we’re looking forward to the Clubvan’s arrival, and it will offer small van users something unique and appealing.” Combining both the practicality of a 860-litre load capacity with premium features already familiar to existing MINI customers, the MINI Clubvan offers commercial customers both style and substance on the road. Speaking of the award, Stephen Chater, Corporate Operations Manager at MINI UK said: “We are delighted that the MINI Clubvan has been commended by one of the most influential voices in the commercial vehicle industry. Interest in the Clubvan has been outstanding and with a strong standard specification, including air conditioning and DAB radio, it proves that for once you really can mix business with pleasure.” Built in Britain at MINI Plant Oxford, the MINI One Clubvan starts from just £11,175, retail price excluding VAT.
