Used MINI Electric For Sale
The MINI Electric made its debut in 2020 and has since established a new benchmark for electric vehicles in the UK. It has retained the best-loved retro design of the adored MINI Hatchback with added electrified driving dynamics and zero emissions.
It's based on its 3-door ICE (internal combustion engine) predecessor with the same hatchback bodystyle and is available with lots of intuitive technology.
There are plenty of reasons why you should consider the Electric for your new vehicle, including:
- Classic design
- Affordable running costs
- Luxury feel
- Great fun to drive
- Zero emissions
Engines and Driving Experience
Under the hood, the MINI Electric boasts an electric motor that delivers an impressive surge of power, propelling it from 0 to 62mph in as little as 7.3 seconds.
The electrified unit ensures zippy acceleration, making city driving an exciting experience, and even though it's primarily designed for urban commutes, it manages to do well on long distance journeys too thanks to being smooth and silent on the move.
The Electric has enough juice for most daily routines, allowing drivers to comfortably cover their city errands without fretting over charging points. While not designed for long-haul road trips, its 145 miles of range is more than adequate for town driving.
Practicality and Running Costs
If you're after a car with a huge amount of space and SUV-levels of practicality, you may not find the MINI Electric the most suitable choice, but in its electric hatchback segment, it does decently well.
The Electric's interior is designed with a focus on style, but it also excels in comfort and utility, with a reasonable amount of headroom. Taller rear passengers might find legroom somewhat restricted, but this is made up by the smooth, comfortable ride that soaks up every lump and bump on the road.
The cargo space is adequate for everyday errands, grocery runs, or carrying small items, but it might not be enough for bulkier loads.
Interior, Technology and Safety
Step inside the MINI Electric, and you'll be greeted by a premium and minimalist cabin. The classic circular theme is subtly incorporated into elements like the centre console and air vents, maintaining the original MINI's distinct personality.
You'll also find a user-friendly infotainment system, ensuring drivers stay connected while keeping their focus on the road. The standard touchscreen display provides easy access to various functions, including satellite navigation and smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The MINI Electric places a strong emphasis on safety, equipped with a range of active safety features to protect occupants and prevent accidents.
Is the MINI Electric right for me?
A used MINI Electric makes a lot of sense for eco-conscious drivers who want an electric car with lots of road presence. It retains the charm of the classic MINI Hatchback, with a sustainable, high-performance twist.
While the Mini Electric undoubtedly stands out in its segment, the Nissan LEAF offers more electric range, making it a suitable option for those seeking longer trips. The Hyundai Kona Electric presents a more affordable alternative with added range, making it a worthy rival to the MINI Electric.
If you're after something with more practicality, the Volkswagen e-Golf combines a comfortable ride with a roomy cabin, offering an attractive package for city driving.
