How it copes with people and clutter

There’s no electric equivalent of the five-door Mini – you get the same body as the three-door petrol Mini hatchback. That means getting into the back of the Mini Electric requires a bit of contortion. Once you’re in, there's less head room than in the regular petrol model because the battery’s position means the rear seats have had to be mounted higher.

The reduced head room is more noticeable with Level 3 trim because the standard-fit panoramic sunroof drops the height of the ceiling. A six-footer will need to cower, and stingy knee room will stop passengers slouching forwards to straighten their neck.
