Home Charging Made Easier

With a range of up to 144† miles from a single charge, MINI Electric can handle hours of adventure without needing to stop. And you can feel good driving all of those miles, because you’ll be emitting 0g/km of CO2. When you do need to charge up, you can do it at one of the 15,000 public charging stations around the UK or at home.

If you follow us on Social Media you’ll know we often conduct Q&A’s for our customers to learn what information you want to know about MINI, we’ve listened to our customers and want to provide as much information about all of our models as we can. First up, with the automotive world making the switch to Electric we want to make sure you have all the information you may need – not just about the car itself but also the process of charging and the initial installation that many customers may find daunting.
