The biggest drawback of electric vehicles for many consumers has been the range, and many have wondered if the fully electric MINI will change some of that. This vehicle, which initially went on sale in March of this year, offers some pretty sweet features for an MSRP of under $30,000. Range, though, was a real concern for many buyers. Fortunately, the electric MINI range on a full charge is 146 miles, which is a respectable amount given the wide industry range today.
MINI Electric Range Is Only the Beginning
The range of this vehicle, though, is only part of its appeal. It will also come loaded with lots of amazing features including Apple CarPlay, heated front seats, and keyless entry. Hoping for a little more? It has auto rain-sensing wipers and headlights, as well as a standard driver assistance package.
For some, an electric car translates to less power, but the MINI comes with 181 horsepower, so you should get the power you’ve come to expect from this vehicle line with the new fully electric model. It can move from zero to 60 in just 6.9 seconds, a feat for an electric vehicle like this one. It has a top speed of 93 miles per hour.
The other real selling point of this vehicle, though, is likely to be the tax credits some buyers will see when they purchase it. Federal tax credits could drop the price as low as $20,000, and when you factor in some available state tax credits, buyers could see even lower prices.
Ideal for the commuter, the fully electric MINI may not get the range of a few other big names on the market today, but it certainly gets a respectable mileage that will get you to and from work every day as you do your part to reduce emissions and live a greener life.
