MINI's new Clubvan - can you tell me a bit about it?

I drove past a MINI dealership the other night and noticed something called a 'Clubvan' that's arriving in 2013. I've never heard of it before - can you tell me a bit about it? I'm a self-employed electrician and wonder whether it will be suitable for me.

The Clubvan is a van version of the Clubman, with metal panels in place of the side windows. MINI has also stripped out the back seats and created a flat load area which goes from the split rear doors up to a partition grille behind the front seats. There are six hooks loops in the load floor that use straps to keep cargo in place while. It's aimed at small businesses such as yours and trades on being a bit trendier than your run-of-the-mill van.

It was first shown at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show as a 'concept' and is now on sale in full production form.
