SEAT Mii Electric replaces petrol city car

Published 04 June 2019

SEAT's new electric city car will have a range of 162 miles and be priced from around £15,000 when it goes on sale in the autumn.

The arrival of the electric Mii - which is closely related to the Skoda Citigo-e iV - marks the end for the petrol-engined model with SEAT confirming that it will stop the combustion-engined Mii in July.

The 2019 Mii Electric looks largely the same as the conventional car, aside from electric lettering and stickers, along with 16-inch alloy wheels in matte grey. Interior updates include a new dashboard, ambient lighting, heated sports seats and a black sport leather steering wheel. 

Like the Citigo-e iV, the Mii electric's motor provides 83PS of power and 212Nm of instant torque, meaning it'll reach 30mph in 3.9 seconds. The car's 37kWh lithium-ion battery pack provides 162 miles from a charge based on the WLTP fuel economy test - two miles short of the Citigo.

The Mii Electric can be charged to 80 per cent capacity in one hour using a 40kW charger, while a 7.2kW home wallbox will take around four hours to take it to 80 per cent. 

A new app, SEAT Connect, provides remote access and management of the vehicle. Owners can use their smartphone to view driving data, parking position and the car's status, including doors and lights - as well as control air conditioning remotely. 

Standard equipment includes metallic paint, LED daytime running lights, cruise control and rear parking sensors. Buyers can choose from five colours: Deep Black, Candy White, Tornado Red, Chester Blue and Tungsten Silver.

Prices are yet to be confirmed, but SEAT says "it will be one of the most affordable electric vehicles on sale." Production will start late in 2019, with deliveries from 2020. More details will be announced when orders open in autumn, but the electric Mii is expected to mirror the Citigo-e iV's £15,000 starting price.
