Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

The Mini has an upmarket image and the interior in the Electric lives up to that, with plenty of soft-touch plastics on the dashboard, as well as solid-feeling knobs, switches and stalks. It looks great, too, with a cheerful, retro design – and thankfully, once you’ve got used to one or two quirks, that doesn’t compromise usability.

The driver's seat is comfortable, supportive and has a wide range of adjustment, and the 5.5in digital screen behind the steering wheel (in place of conventional instrument dials) makes it easy to see how much charge there is in the battery at a glance, as well as how fast you’re going. The digital instruments in some rivals show a greater variety of detail and are larger, but the Mini covers the basics. 

As standard, the Mini Electric gets an 8.8in infotainment screen, with Bluetooth, a DAB radio, sat-nav and Apple Carplay smartphone mirroring. The system is controlled by twisting and pressing a small wheel between the front seats, a method that’s considerably less distracting when you’re driving than using a touchscreen. The graphics and screen quality are impressive, and are about as good as it gets in the small car class.

If you go for Level 3 trim, you also get wireless phone-charging, a more powerful Harman Kardon sound system and a head-up display.
