Mini's new space-age Rocketman Concept previews what the future of urban mobility could look like for the BMW sub-brand. It's slightly smaller than the current Cooper, and we're big fans of the dual-hinged doors that pivot outwards, complete with the sills. In fact, the whole concept strikes us as totally cool, and is further proof that Mini's cheekiness can be further evolved to new types of vehicles.
The Rocketman's interior uses a space-efficient three-plus-one seating arrangement, and we're told that the car is powered by a highly efficient powertrain capable of returning 78 miles per gallon on the U.S. cycle. Mini's new Connected infotainment system is displayed via three-dimensional graphics on the interactive speedometer screen, and there's even a steering wheel-mounted joystick to operate the whole slew of functions.
There's a whole host of clever features found within the Rocketman, but above all, the concept's design is what really stands out. See for yourself in the high-res image galleries below.
