Having just been unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show, the MINI Paceman Concept is production ready, according to a MINI source, who told AutoGuide that 2013 is the target date for the Paceman’s launch. Before the new two-door crossover, MINI will launch the upcoming Coupe and Roadster, sportier, stripped down versions of the base car with distinctive styling.

The Paceman will ape the upcoming Range Rover Evoque with its two-door crossover bodystyle. A MINI rep said that minor changes will be carried out, but the production car will remain faithful to the concept, including the characteristic roofline. As far as tech details go, we don’t have much – there wasn’t even an interior to take pictures of – but we bet that MINIs wonderful 4-cylinders will make an appearance, alongside the All4 all-wheel-drive system.
