In 2030, the English manufacturer will become the first brand of the German group to go all-electric. By then, its entire range will have been updated. It will start next year with the introduction of a new generation of the classic 3-door, and a 100% electric crossover that will be launched in 2024, heavily inspired by the Aceman study that the manufacturer just presented.

Behind its compact dimensions of 4.05 m in length, 1.99 m in width and 1.59 m in height, the silhouette of the Aceman Concept testifies to the growing influence of SUVs across all makes. Vertical grille, hexagonal optics, square wheel arches, 20-inch rims, raised ground clearance, green plastic sills, roof rack in the shape of the Union Jack flag: the Aceman adopts the symbols of the perfect adventurer.

The inspiration of the hi-fi world still radiates to the central screen with OLED technology that looks like a 45 rpm record. Another innovation: the surface of the dashboard serves as projections for animated images and useful driving information. As for the central tunnel installed between the two seats, it has modular and house cup holders, a wireless charger and storage. A production version of the Aceman will be released in 2024. It will slot in between the 3-door model and the Countryman.
