In order to celebrate the 2008 Olympics, something was needed that not only conveyed the essence of MINI, but which was distinctly Chinese, moreover, distinctly Beijing. Of course, in order to catch the mood properly it should incorporate a little athleticism too. Hence, the MINI Clubman “The Other Rickshaw” was born. Although it may be difficult for your North American and European readers to understand, it is something everyone here can immediately identify with. Even though bicycle rickshaws are slowly disappearing from the roads, they still hold a dear place in everyone’s heart. Anyone who sees the Rickshaw smiles, which is what MINI is all about. They also take pictures and beg for rides, because just like all MINIs this one is fantastic fun to drive and packs big grins into a small package.
…Plus it is easy to park.
