Make the switch to MINI Electric
A lot of MINI Electric is what you know and love about the MINI Hatch already. Its iconic design and legendary responsive handling. The innovative tech. The ability to customise it to your taste (did we mention the six handsome colour options available?). But the new fully electric motor takes things to a whole new level. So, if you’re looking for a car that’s all torque, as well as action, then let us introduce the latest MINI Electric. It feels better than ever, with immediate oomph thanks to instant torque. And it looks better than ever too. With a sharper, sleeker update to its legendary MINI look and, of course, that MINI Electric feeling.
REASONS TO MAKE THE SWITCH TO MINI ELECTRIC.
Now MINI Electric is here, you can make the switch to electric without losing any of the things you love about MINI. Need any more reasons to make the switch to MINI Electric? Read on.
ELECTRIC COSTS LESS.
The cost of electricity can be up to two thirds less than what you’re paying for petrol or diesel. When it comes to cost per mile, the news gets even better. Compared to a traditional petrol or diesel car, going fully electric could cut costs by up to three quarters or more. MINI Electric makes your money go further too. At just 4p per mile, it’s around 2.5 to 6 times cheaper than driving a petrol or diesel.
ELECTRIC CAR CHARGING POINTS.
Charging MINI Electric is just as easy on the go. The UK network of public charging points is growing every day. And MINI Navigation will plan your route taking into account the 9,000+ charging points already available across the UK.
MINI have partnered with bp pulse, meaning MINI Electric drivers can charge up easily at over 7,000 public charging points using both AC and Rapid DC chargers.
CLEANER MEANS GREENER.
Bid farewell to traditional fuels and start living a little greener? With zero exhaust emissions, you’re creating less pollution as you drive. And by switching to a sustainable energy supplier, like MINI’s partner OVO Energy, you can reduce your environmental impact even more.
LOW MAINTENANCE MILES.
An electric car motor is less complex than a combustion engine. And because there are fewer moving parts, it means there’s less wear and tear, so maintenance can be kept to a minimum. When it’s time for a service, we can help you keep the costs down too with our simple monthly payment plans.
FILL UP AT HOME.
With MINI Electric, you’ll wake up every morning raring to go. Just plug in to a standard home socket overnight to recharge the battery whilst you’re sleeping. If you want more efficient charging, we recommend installing a Wallbox at home.
SMOOTHER, QUICKER, QUIETER.
One of the first things you notice when driving an electric car is how calm it feels inside. With no noise from the engine, you feel more relaxed and connected to the world outside. Without the need to change gear, accelerating feels smooth and effortless with instant torque from the electric motor. And when you put your foot down, there’s an immediate response and surge of speed that makes an electric vehicle ideal for city driving.
SAVE WITH A GOVERNMENT GRANT.
MINI Electric has been given a Category 1 rating by the government, which means you can receive a £2,500 grant towards the purchase price. Plus, if you’re buying a MINI Electric for your business, there’s a BIK rate of 0% from April 2020.
As electric vehicles produce no emissions, they are exempt from Vehicle Emissions Duty (VED). In London, they are also exempt from the congestion charge, as long as drivers apply for the 100% discount. And exempt from the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) too.
