MINI Rocketman Concept Unveiled Ahead Of Geneva Debut

MINI’s current range is not that mini as it use to be, but it looks like the automaker still remembers its roots by revealing a Rocketman Concept. The Rocketman draws inspiration from the original 1959 MINI and is just 3,419mm long, 1,907mm wide and 1,398mm tall.

The Rocketman features a 3+1 seating arrangement and plenty of technological goodies like 3D infotainment system, internet connectivity, and a trackball that is integrated into the steering wheel.

MINI did not reveal, what’s under the bonnet, but did say the concept is capable of having an average fuel consumption of 94mpg.

The Rocketman is not just a design study, but a preview for a new small car from the MINI brand.
