According to Auto Express, the decidedly adorable Mini Rocketman Concept from this year’s Geneva Motor Show might be headed for production as a new entry-level model within the next few years. If the rumors are to be believed, we could see the new mini Mini on the streets as early as 2014.
Auto Express suggests that a production version of the Rocketman could share a lot of its underpinnings with BMW’s new i3 city car. Executives were quick to dismiss the notion that a Mini vehicle would be produced under BMW’s “i” division, but that, “the technology we are developing for the ‘i’ family of cars will certainly be made available for the rest of the BMW Group.” Makes sense.
