SEAT recharges city driving with the new Mii electric

The new SEAT Mii electric has been launched in Oslo and will be the brand's first all-electric car. Prices will be announced in autumn this year, but are expected to start below £18,000.

The Mii electric fuses dynamism, elegant design, an advanced powertrain, and new levels of connectivity with affordability and low cost of ownership, to offer a vehicle that is ready to meet the challenges of the city, and meet the needs of a new generation of customer.
SEAT’s first production all-electric vehicle also lays the groundwork for future members to the family, with more EVs and PHEVs due to join the Mii electric in the near future, including the all-electric SEAT el-Born, plug-in hybrid versions of the Tarraco and Leon, and high-performance plug-in hybrid versions of CUPRA Formentor and CUPRA Leon.
The Mii electric will help prepare SEAT’s expansive dealership network for the expanding electrified market and the challenges it will bring, making the transition for customers moving to electric vehicles seamless.

Design and Engineering
Thanks to its compact dimensions, the Mii electric offers great agility while driving in the city and while parking. The Mii electric has been designed to meet the demands of modern driving, whether you are traversing the bustling streets of the inner city or navigating through suburbia, taking up the mantle from the combustion engine Mii when production of that vehicle ends in July 2019.

The Mii electric’s exterior is subtlely refreshed with the introduction of electric lettering at the rear, electric stickers on the side and 16” alloy wheels in matte cosmo grey. Inside, delicate changes include a new dashboard with SEAT IML foil, ambient lighting, sporty and heated seats, black sport leather steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake. In addition, the Mii electric comes equipped with Lane Assist as a standard equipment. But the greatest transformation comes under the bonnet.

The Mii electric’s motor, linked to a single speed transmission, provides its 61kW (83PS) of power and 212Nm of torque instantly, meaning the five-door car can reach 50km/h from a standstill in only 3.9 seconds – perfect for jumping in and out of traffic. And the car’s 36.8kWh lithium-ion battery pack, provides up to 260km* of range from a single charge based on the WLTP test cycle.

The all-electric city car is the first model to include SEAT CONNECT, giving remote access and management of the vehicle. Customers can review driving data, parking position, the vehicle’s status, including doors and lights, and the ability to control air-conditioning remotely, all from their smartphone app.

Simplicity is key to the trim levels and options available, with a lean and easy offering.

Two trim levels will be available, with five optional equipment packs: Garage, Easy Flex, Below Zero, Home Charge and FAST (DC Charging). There will also be a choice of five colours: Deep Black, Candy White, Tornado Red, Costa Blue and Tungsten Silver.
