Geneva 2011: Mini Rocketman Concept

We were looking forward to seeing Mini's concept offering at the opening of the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, and the automaker didn't let us down. Mini's new Rocketman Concept is supposed to be a preview of what the future holds in store for urban travel. Standing slightly smaller than the current Cooper, the Rocketman Concept vehicle sports a pair of dual-hinged doors that pivot outwards, and it even had sills in place.

Power comes from a highly efficient engine capable of earning 78 miles per gallon (would there be any other way in the future?). Inside, you'll also see that Mini has hooked up the new Connected infotainment system that can display three-dimensional graphics on the interactive speedometer screen. The interior of the concept uses a space-efficient three-plus-one seating arrangement. The features don't stop with this concept, and we're looking forward to see what comes out of this vehicle in the future.
