Mini Electric launches with £299 a month lease deal

New Mini Electric is now available to order from just £299 a month; prices from £24,400 including Plug-in Car Grant, with deliveries from March 2020

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.

The lease deal aims to make the Mini Electric even more accessible to urban dwellers.

It’s a Personal Contract Hire package, spread over 48 months (or four years).

For those with the necessary £4,000 deposit, monthly rentals from as little as £299 are on offer.

Other hot facts about the new Mini Electric include its 7.3-seconds 0-62mph time (almost as fast as the Mini Cooper S petrol) and the ability to fast-charge from flat to 80 percent full in 35 minutes.
