  • Pokemon animations inside and out


Gotta drive ’em all? Mini’s latest concept car is the Concept Aceman with Pokemon Mode. Set to be revealed at Gamescom in Cologne, the idea is somehow equal parts completely pointless and absolutely amazing.

Mini showed off the Concept Aceman last month. The new Mini is something new for the brand, its first all-electric crossover. Loaded with LED lighting on the outside and able to project graphics onto the dash, Mini has used both of those features to make the Pokemon version of the car.

Turn on Pokemon Mode and the large center screen lights up with a Poke Ball animation followed by all the Pikachu you can handle. It’s not just limited to the main screen, though, Mini uses Aceman’s projection system to display Pokemon graphics over the whole dash of the car.

“A major feature of MINI is the positive and future-oriented approach to individual mobility as well as the distinctive design of the vehicles. Gamification will play an increasingly important role in the MINI of the future and offer a unique experience for our customers. In cooperation with Pokémon, the shared joy of the franchise brings two iconic characters, that are a perfect match, together with millions of fans. This is how we reach a whole new target group at Gamescom 2022, as an event for modern fandom, gaming and pop culture,” says Stefanie Wurst, Head of Mini.

Mini is going to show off the car like an Action Pack. With a big package that looks like it’s been taken right off the shelf and includes Poke Ball wheel center caps and graphics.
