The Seat Mii Electric is now available to order in the UK. It’s Seat’s first all-electric car and first deliveries are expected early next year.
Priced from £19,300, the Seat Mii Electric is available for £199 per month on a PCP deal. This is after a £4,399 customer deposit, with Seat contributing £500 to the cost.
The first 300 retail customers who place an order before 31 December 2019 will also receive a free wall box charger fitted at their home, a three-pin charging cable, plus servicing and breakdown cover for three years.
It’s the first of a range of all-electric and plug-in hybrid Seats. The Mii Electric will be followed by the el-Born EV, plug-in hybrid versions of the Tarraco and Leon, along with performance plug-in models wearing a Cupra badge.
The Seat Mii Electric city car boasts a 36.8kWh battery pack to provide up to 161 miles of WLTP range. Rapid charging to 80 percent takes an hour, while using a home charger takes four hours to reach 80 percent charged.
Only one trim level is available, with the spec including 16-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats, 5-inch colour screen, DAB digital radio, smartphone integration, rear parking sensors, hill hold control, lane assist and traffic sign recognition.
To help distinguish it from petrol versions of the Seat Mii, the EV features ‘electric’ lettering on the rear, plus stickers and cosmetic interior upgrades.
The Mii Electric is also the first model to get Seat Connect, giving remote access and management of the vehicle. Mii Electric owners can review driving data, parking position, vehicle status, and have the ability to control the air conditioning from their smartphone.
Five no-cost metallic colours are available: Deep Black, Candy White, Tornado Red, Chester Blue and Tungsten Silver.
Seat Mii electric production will begin in Slovakia by the end of the year. Orders can be placed now and first customer deliveries are projected for the end of the first quarter of 2020.
It will make its UK customer debut at the Seat store in Westfield White City between 28 October and 9 November.
