Electric Mini now available to order

Mini brand retailers are now accepting deposits for the first production all-electric Mini, writes Brian Byrne.

Deliveries will be from March of next year for the car, which retails from €27,765 OTR. The price includes SEAI grant and VRT rebate.

The 185hp electric motor gives a 7.3s sprint to 100km/h. The range in WLTP regime is claimed at 235-270 kms. Charging at a 50KW point will provide 80pc of capacity in 35 minutes.

There will be three trim levels. A standard feature is a new digital dashboard.
