Mini Electric launches with £299 a month lease deal

Mini ElectricThe new Mini Electric is now open for ordering, with a special £299 a month lease deal helping make the zero-emissions electric city car even more attractive.

The firm has already surprised fans by announcing an on-the-road price from £24,400, including the government’s £3,500 Plug-in Car Grant.

This is significantly cheaper than the projected price of the new Honda e electric car.

Like the Honda, Mini is quoting a 124-mile minimum range for the new electric three-door. Some may see up to 144 miles, according to the new WLTP electric car range test.

Of course, the range is significantly less than other electric cars such as the Kia e-Niro and Hyundai Niro EV.

But unlike the Honda, Mini has price on its side – warranting its argument that it balanced range with price to come out with the best-possible blend of driving distance and affordability.
