The MINI Aceman concept EV has been unveiled, with a production version due to launch in 2024. The car has unusual features, such as projecting images onto the dashboard, including the instrument cluster. Infotainment is displayed on an OLED touchscreen, and a wireless charging station is built into the central console.

The MINI Concept Aceman has been revealed, an all-electric 5-door crossover SUV. The car is similar in size to the MINI Countryman, with a range of modern features. The EV will be used as the base for the next generation electric MINI hatchback, and a production version is due to launch in 2024.

On the front of the vehicle are Matrix LED lights where the grille would be, and sensors activate a light animation as you approach the car. Inside the vehicle, the only analogue controls come from a toggle bar, including a parking brake switch. The Aceman has a transparent floating central console with a wireless charging area, and a circular OLED touchscreen display to show the Android-based infotainment system.

Projectors set into the roof near the windscreen cast your instrument cluster onto the fabric-covered dashboard. Plus, the projectors can throw pillar-to-pillar animated images, such as clouds in the sky or waves on the shore. MINI has suggested that the projections could also be used to expand the infotainment system, though it has not confirmed whether it will include the projectors in the production model.

It is unclear what range and power the MINI Aceman will have. However, we know that the new electric MINI Cooper will have a 40 kWh battery and 181 bhp, and a Cooper S model will have a 50 kWh battery and 221 bhp. Both versions will be capable of a range of around 250 miles (~402 km). The price of the MINI Aceman is expected to be unveiled in the coming months.
