Charging up the MINI Electric
Date posted: 28 July 2020
With a full charge, MINI Electric delivers up to 145 miles. And because most charges can happen when your car is at home, keeping it topped up every day is easy.
Simply plug into a wallbox and your MINI Electric will be fully charged in just over three hours. Or if there isn’t a wallbox handy, just plug it into any standard home socket.
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.
As we’re partnered with BP Chargemaster, MINI Electric drivers can charge up easily at over 7,000 public charging points using both AC and Rapid DC chargers.
If you have off-street parking, you could also qualify for the Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS)². The grant pays 75% towards the cost and installation of a Wallbox charger in your home (up to a maximum of £350).
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO CHARGE AN ELECTRIC CAR.MINI Electric makes your money go further too. At just 4p per mile, it’s around 2.5 to 6 times cheaper than driving petrol or diesel.**
Unlike some electric cars, MINI Electric's battery is included in the price of the car. And we're so confident about our technology we offer a warranty of 8 years or 100,000 miles, whichever you reach first.
The Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS) is a government-funded scheme that helps to reduce the purchase and installation cost of workplace charging stations significantly. Find out how your company can apply.Find out more about the MINI Electric
