Is a used Mini Electric hatchback reliable?

The Mini Electric is a reliable car. In our 2023 What Car? Reliability Survey, it ranked first out of 20 cars in the electric car (EV) class. Its reliability score of 97.6% makes it more reliable than any other EV, including the Cupra Born and VW ID 3.

Only 7% of survey respondents reported any issues with their Mini Electrics, with none being serious enough to render any cars undriveable. Mini covered the cost of all remedial work, and although no cars were fixed in a day, all were back on the road in less than a week.

As a car brand, Mini ranked third – above Ford and Tesla but below Toyota and Lexus (in second and first place, respectively).
