At £19,300 (after the £3,500 Plug In Car Grant) the SEAT Mii electric makes a lot of sense to a lot of people, not least the people who actually make it.
It’s a 5-door 4-seater with a maximum fair weather range of 162 miles, which is more than enough for most commuters, suburban drivers and the elderly and disabled for whom a car is their legs.
More importantly, with zero tailpipe emissions, it cuts the maker’s corporate average CO2 to a level that reduces EC fines and avoids some of the 10%-20% price increases that would otherwise have to be passed on to carbuyers generally from 2020 onwards. The more SEAT Mii electric EVs, Skoda Citgo electric EVs and e-Ups that VAG can sell, the less it has to charge for Porsches, Lamborghinis and Bentleys. The entire Mii, Citigo and most Up production line has been switched from petrol engined cars to EVs. In fact VAG is going all out to reduce its corporate carbon footprint with the Golf sized ID3; Golf VIIIs, new model Octavias and Q3 48v mild hybrids; Golf, Passat and Q5 PHEVs. A lot of vehicles.
The Mii electric comes decently trimmed and equipped with electric front windows, central locking, heated front seats, immobiliser as well as side and curtain airbags as standard. All have includes Climatronic a/c, TomTom satnav, lane assist, traffic sign reminder, hill hold and ‘SEAT drive profile’ (normal, eco, eco+).
Smartphone integration with the Drive Mii app includes a universal smartphone cradle that enables you to use the satnav on your phone such as TomTom® in the Drive Mii App, Google Maps, Waze or whatever you want. You also get handwriting recognition, Eco Trainer, USB port and an AUX-in port.
