Tea and Scones MINI in Tokyo

MINI is launching a new interpretation of the classic Mini Traveler at the Tokyo Motor Show.

The MINI Concept Tokyo will feature a new roof and cargo box system, as well as a new interior green colour scheme, alloy design and indicator lights sporting the Union Jack.

The concept is experimenting with access and storage solutions. The roof system houses a table and two chairs for impromptu picnics and weary guests at cricket matches. In response to the company's belief that the Japanese appreciate all things British, the cargo box in the rear of the car can be taken out and attached to the side window when open to create a table for serving tea and scones.
