The interior of the MINI Concept Aceman is also dominated by a reduced design with clear shapes and carefully executed details. It is combined with innovative technology and reinterpreted typical MINI design features. The cockpit of the concept vehicle shows a consistent reduction to the essentials, just as the designer of the classic Mini presented in 1959 had in mind. Alec Issigonis designed an interior in which, in addition to the seats, the steering wheel and the shift lever, only a central round instrument and a toggle switch bar were sufficient to experience incomparable driving pleasure. “In the interior of the MINI Concept Aceman we are concentrating on a reduced appearance in combination with high-quality materials and friendly colours. Digitization allows us to get by with just a few controls while maximizing the experience in a typical MINI way,” explains Oliver Heilmer. "The entire design is geared towards offering the occupants a holistic experience in the interior." Wide, gently curved surfaces in the area of ​​the door panels and dashboard promote the generous feeling of space. The large panoramic glass roof of the MINI Concept Aceman contributes to the light-flooded ambience. Its glass surface is divided by the transverse and diagonal struts of the roof rack, the structure of which takes up the flag motif of the Union Jack and is thus also a reminder of the origin of the brand when looking up at the sky from the interior
