Report: MINI Paceman Will Go On Sale In 2013

MINI’s lineup is getting bigger and bigger. The Paceman Concept, that saw its public debut at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this month will enter production in 2012, with first cars arriving at MINI dealerships in early 2013.

Dr. Klaus Draeger confirmed earlier this week to German newspaper Kleine Zeitung that production of Paceman will begin in late 2012 with first units arriving at dealerships in 2013. The Paceman will be built in Graz, Austria by Magna-Steyr along with the Countryman. Annual production is targeted at 20,000 units.

Just like the Countryman, the Paceman will be offered in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations. The concept version that was previewed in Detroit, was powered by a turbocharged 211bhp 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine with 207 lb-ft of torque. The production model will most likely offer the same range of engines, as the bigger Countryman that the Paceman shares its platform with.
