Geneva 2011: Ford B-Max Compact Minivan Concept

Ford S-Max and C-Max are getting a smaller brother called B-Max. This compact minivan concept rides on the same platform as the new Fiesta and is just 11cm longer than the five-door Fiesta hatchback.

The B-Max has no traditional B-pillars, instead they are integrated into the front and rear doors and when closed work just like traditional pillar. Twin sliding doors make it very easy to get in or out of the car.

The concept is powered by a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged EcoBoost engine with Start/Stop technology.

No production details have been announced at this point, but Ford calls the B-Max concept production ready, so we wouldn’t be surprised if it goes on sale in early 2012.
