This is the MINI Electric. A full EV version of the three-door hatch complete with a 124-mile range, three trim levels and a starting price of £24,400. It’s on sale now with deliveries beginning in March 2020.
MINI says the Electric’s arrival is as groundbreaking as the car that heralded the brand’s reinvention in 2001. It also comes in the middle of BMW’s 60th anniversary of the original 1959 Mini, and nine years on from the British brand’s first attempt at an all-electric model. It was called the MINI E, 600 prototypes were built worldwide with selected drivers taking part in feasibility trials, but the cars were never sold to the public.
