The car

Is there a car that is more iconic than the MINI? Perhaps not and while the “new” MINI is rather larger than its namesake, it still retains the signature shape and has become a common sight on UK roads.

Now the MINI is undergoing another defining change – it’s gone electric.

It also has a cheaper starting price than the petrol versions (from £24,400), marking it out as a real viable alternative to existing MINI fans and potential new ones.

The MINI Electric is in many ways the car you’d expect. It has those familiar style points including the headlamps, bold interior and distinctive colours. But the MINI Electric also has some additional quirks such as the geometric alloy wheels, sporty front grille and unique badging.

The car has a range of 144 miles thanks to the 32.6kWh battery pack. While this is not a class-leading range, the car is designed for urban areas where daily mileage is low and public chargers are or will be in abundance in addition to the owner’s home charger. The theory here is a bigger battery is more expensive, heavier and takes longer to charge – better to have a cheaper, lighter, more efficient and smaller battery for urban driving which can charge fully in a shorter amount of time.

To aid the faster charging times, the MINI Electric is capable of 11kW AC charging and up to 50kW DC charging using a CCS rapid charger. In fact, charging 0-80% from a typical 7.4kW home wall box charger will only take 2.5 hours.

 

Charging at home

You can find full details of how long it takes to charge this vehicle from empty to full using a 7.4kW home charge point at the bottom of this page.

However, it's important to note that most electric car charging is done overnight when you're asleep (so you wake up to a charged vehicle) and it's very unlikely you will ever need to charge the battery from completely empty to completely full. So, in reality, most drivers will only need to "top up" their car's battery overnight - for example, from 50% to 80%. 

We tested how often the average driver would need to charge each week using the Jaguar GO I-PACE app. See how we got on in this video.
