MINI is proud to announce today the local pricing and arrival schedule for its highly-anticipated first-ever all-electric MINI.

Priced at $59,900*(National drive away price), a limited number of launch special “First Edition” variants will arrive in Australian dealerships from August 2020.

The MINI Electric Hatch is based on the striking design of the three-door ICE-powered MINI Cooper S but with exterior accents unique to MINI’s first-ever EV.

Four colours are available at launch, paired with two wheel combinations to endow the car with a sporty yet futuristic look.

The MINI Electric Hatch is powered by a 32.6kWh latest-generation lithium-ion battery, producing an impressive 135kW of power that results in a 0-100km/h acceleration time of just 7.3 seconds.

Capable of a 233-kilometre drive range on a single charge, according to latest WLTP measurement standards, the MINI Electric Hatch is also perfect for metropolitan dwellers and intra-city commutes, able to achieve an 80% charge in just 35 minutes when using a 50kW DC public charger.

The MINI Electric Hatch retains MINI’s famed “go-kart” driving feel by positioning powertrain components low and near the centre of the car in a T-shape, coupled with suspension tuning unique to the car for a low centre of gravity that produces sharp, responsive handling.

The MINI Electric Hatch is built in the UK at MINI Plant Oxford, the birthplace and heart of MINI production.
