Hi Guys!

My names Will, just thought I'd introduce myself!

I currently work with MINI in Newport South Wales, and I've just had some exiting news from MINI about the New Fully Electric MINI!

Working with Nissan in the past, being part of the team working with the Leaf 2.0 launch, this new MINI will be groundbreaking!

The best bit about new car is its pricing. It's priced in line with the rest of the MINI range, in fact, specing up a comparable Petrol model, the new MINI Electric is actually around £500 less!

Its coming ready for March 2020, but we can take pre-orders for the car now!

The PCP offers on the car are starting to be generated too so for any more info drop me a message at

I've put a pic below of the new car too, what do you think?

I guess the question was about the lithium battery size/capacity rather than the manufacturer. Less range than my i3, tiny boot etc. etc. but many will find the design more appealing than the i3. Could be very successful as an urban runaround, particularly for younger people.
According to ev-database, Mini EV has a 32.6kWh (28.9kWh usable) battery. BMW i3 has 42.2kWh (37.9kWh usable) and the 94Ah i3 had 33.2kWh (27.2kWh usable).

So as well as a different manufacturer the new mini has a different battery capacity than any i3.

That’s correct but we don't know whether the energy density of the cells is an improvement on the cells used in the 120Ahr i3. The capacity is less but the range is quite good for a car that’s made of metal etc. rather than plastic and GRP so perhaps there is a small battery improvement incorporated in the design. If so, BMW are being rather coy about it.
