MINI Electric Cars
We have a range of electric cars from MINI available on our all inclusive monthly subscription model. Read on for more info on our range and MINI’s history in the EV space.
Why you should drive a MINI electric car
First launched in 1959, MINI remains a clearly distinctive and iconic car brand that’s keen to preserve its British traditions. MINI has since developed its brand from the classic MINI Cooper to the MINI Countryman – the largest ever car to wear the MINI badge.
While the original MINI was developed as a result of the fuel crisis in the 50s, MINI’s venture into electric cars is now the perfect reinvention of the brand in the current climate. The electric version offers a very similar driving experience as any MINI. It’s fun and extremely responsive. So if you’re swapping from the Cooper to an Electric, you won’t be disappointed.

How long has MINI been producing EVs?
MINI first ventured into electric car production in 2008, when 612 MINI e-cars were modified and road tested by private and business customers. As part of MINI’s research into electric cars, between 2009 and 2013 the modified MINIs clocked up over 16 million kilometres across six countries and three continents. The fully-electric production version of the MINI was then released ten years later in 2019.
Why driving an EV is great
There are plenty of reasons why driving an electric car is great, and benefits not only you as the driver, but also the environment.
While MINI produces great petrol and diesel cars, the benefits of an EV mean they’re the perfect choice for drivers looking to make the switch to electric:
- There are far fewer moving parts in an EV, which means maintaining them is cheaper and there’s less that can potentially go wrong
- Charging an EV is quick and simple – by using a rapid charge point, you can charge your EV’s battery to 80% in as little as 20 minutes
- EVs are far kinder to the environment, and by using green energy to charge the battery they can be completely carbon neutral after manufacture
- Compared to petrol and diesel, the cost of charging an EV is considerably cheaper than a tank of fuel
MINI EVs on Subscription
An alternative to buying is a MINI subscription through elmo.
