Although SEAT have stopped producing the fully electric Mii, this car is bound to stick around the used car market for a long time! This compact city car is an attractive proposition and one EV buyers should definitely take a look at. Here are four things you need to know about it…
Range is a big deal when it comes to electric cars. The dreaded ‘range anxiety’ is often blamed as a reason why some are hesitant to switch to emission-free motoring. However, with the Mii Electric, buyers needn’t worry. Sure, it’s 161-mile range isn’t the highest on the market, but it’s really rather good and very suited to the city car segment.
Thanks to its 36.8kWh battery pack, the little Mii Electric is a delightfully nippy hatchback that offers a fair amount of punch. With 82bhp and 212Nm of torque, the car will do 0-60mph in a respectable 12.3 seconds.
The Mii Electric is actually really quite fun to drive. Due to its compact proportions, relatively low weight (for a car, let alone an EV) and electric powertrain which puts its power down fairly quickly, it’s easy to change direction in.
Those fearing this electric version of the Mii will force them to learn to drive all over again are quite mistaken. Apart from the silent whoosh when putting your foot down, it’s pretty much identical to a regular Mii and feels like most normal cars to use.
