2019 Mini Electric – what we know so far
Next year, Mini will introduce a fully electric version of its hugely popular hatchback. Here's what you can expect from this new model...
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?
