During his press conference, Ian Robertson, Board Member for Sales and Marketing, announced that the Paceman will be the basis for Mini's seventh production model in the lineup.

"There will be a seventh member of the Mini family - and we will base it on this concept," said Robertson. "Mini keeps growing, the excitement never stops."

The current lineup includes the Mini Hardtop, Convertible, Clubman and Countryman. The Mini Coupe will be launched later this year, and the Mini Roadster will be available in 2012.

The Paceman design study is the first crossover coupe in the premium small car segment. It is based on the same platform as the Mini Countryman, and combines an coupe appearance with the dimensions of the Countryman.

The Paceman includes the Countrman's ALL4 all-wheel-drive system and is powered by the 1.6-liter John Cooper Works twin-scroll turbo engine.
