The MINI Beachcomber concept at 2010 NAIAS.

DETROIT -- I spoke to Gert Volker Hildebrand, Chief Designer, who designed the Mini Beachcomber. The features include the openness, softness and transparency. There are no doors on this vehicle.

The fuel economy is not available yet along with no pricing yet available.

The vehicle is four meters long, a compact Mini which will be built in Austria.

Why is this vehicle unique? "It is a mini crossover concept," Hildebrand said.

It will be put in production in middle of 2010. "It is fun oriented," the chief designer added.

The MINI display resembles California, complete with palm trees and beach chairs.
