Remember the Mini E? This fully electric version of the Mini hatchback was built in 2008 as a trial to assess the popularity of electric cars. Over the course of six months, 20 were sent to UK cities, where they could be leased for £330 per month.

At the time, it seemed like a battery-powered Mini you could buy was only months away from showrooms but, 10 years later, we're still waiting.

Not for much longer, though, because a model called the Mini Electric will be introduced in 2019 and sold alongside petrol and diesel variants. So, what can you expect from it?
