All-Electric Mini To Be Revealed in July

Mini Electric Concept

Mini has joined other brands in offering a compact all-electric car and the all-new Mini Electric will be revealed on the 9th July 2019. Here are some more details as well as a teaser video.

The Charged with Passion campaign kicked off with the below video and teases Mini's all-electric offering. Other than what appears to be generic and typical Mini styling as well as a charging port where the fuel cap used to be. 

There was a website link on the video, but there's not much to go on right now. However, there are pre-orders available for a select few countries such as Germany, France, Norway, Sweden and the Netherlands, while customers in the UK, USA, Spain and Italy can register interest. 

In terms of looks, we reckon it'll be slightly toned down from the 2017 Electric Concept, which you can see above. In terms of powertrain, we think Mini will adopt the same setup as the latest iteration of the BMW i3. That'll mean a battery capacity of 33 kWh and outputs of 125 kW and 250 Nm. It'll also be quite spritely, with a claimed sprint time of 7.3 seconds and a top speed of 150 kph. In terms of range, the BMW i3 has a claimed range of around 250 kph, so we're expecting similar for the forthcoming Mini Electric.

We'll have all the details when the vehicle is officially revealed on the 9th July 2019.
