Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

The Seat Mii Electric is one of the cheapest electric cars you can buy; a Renault Zoe costs considerably more. Yes, it’s still a lot pricier than comparable petrol-engined city cars, but, as electric cars go, the Mii Electric’s price is a real highlight. 

To charge the battery from 0-80% from a 7kW home charger takes around four hours, while a 40kW rapid charger will do the same in one hour. A three-pin plug will juice it up in 13-16 hours, but you’ll have to pay extra for the cable – it’s a shame it doesn’t come with the car. These charging times are broadly in line with rival electric cars’.

Overview

If you are after electric motoring in a comparatively affordable, bitesize package, the Seat Mii Electric has plenty going for it. The main draw is its price, and while its electric range may not be as long as some other electric cars can manage, it should still be plenty for many potential buyers. Just bear in mind that, if your budget can be stretched a little, some rivals are more practical inside and will go farther on a full charge.
