Mini may target companies looking for an upscale delivery vehicle with a car-based van.
The BMW-owned brand will unveil the Clubvan concept at the Geneva auto show next month. The concept sits on a version of the Mini Clubman's platform.
Mini said the concept shows a potential small car with extra load capacity for "premium" small businesses who want to make a style statement.
"A car in the mold of the Mini Clubvan concept would fit excellently into the fleet of a fashion designer, art gallery owner or event caterer," the UK-based company said in a statement.
The five-door Clubvan has two seats in the front and a flat load compartment in the rear. It has two doors at the front, a rear-hinged door on the right-hand side and split rear doors that open to the load area.
