Mini Rick Shaw does rounds in Beijing

By Ash in Chinese Car News


To celebrate the MINI Clubmans jump into the PRC, Beijing MINI came up with an extremely novel idea on how to promote their new model and grab some headlines when pretty much most of the media is dedicated to the Oylmpics.

The MINI Rickshaw, named ‘The other Rickshaw’ has certainly grabbed headlines around China, and to a certain extent the international media. The body of the Clubman is from Germany (although we thought they were to be made in Austria?) and the conversion to rickshaw was carried out in Hong Kong, and then the rickMINI was taken to Beijing to ‘bring good luck’ to the Beijing Olympics.
