Leasing a Mini Electric Hatchback
The Mini Electric hatchback is the newest member of the Mini Cooper family. Launched in 2019, the first fully-electric Minis were welcomed by early adopters in March 2020. Built at the firm’s Oxford plant, the Mini can honestly say it’s 100% British-built. Boot space is the same as other Mini hatchbacks (211-litres as standard and up to 731-litres with the rear seats down), which still makes it a practical choice for city breaks and the weekly shop. For a quick look at alternatives in the Mini range, why not compare the all-new electric with the standard Mini hatchback or for a little more space, the Mini Countryman is another great option.
As a 100% electric car, there are zero CO2 emissions which means no congestion charge and no road tax, making this a virtuous choice if you’re after a brand new vehicle. Its lithium-ion battery will give you 184bhp and accelerates from 0-62 mph in 7.3 seconds. As it’s electric, you’ll only have an automatic transmission which makes urban driving a breeze. In terms of WLTP range, you can expect up to 145 miles on a single full charge, depending on the spec level you choose. If you have a wallbox charger at home, you can go from 0-80% in just over three hours, or you can charge it overnight using a regular three-pin plug (0-80% charge in 12 hours). For super quick charging, a commercial grade wallbox will get you from zero to 80% charge in just 36 minutes.
Mini has kept it nice and easy with three trim levels to choose from - Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3. Standard trim on all levels includes cruise control, ISOFIX attachments and DAB radio. As a bonus, you also get a choice of personalisation features at no additional cost ensuring your new electric Mini hatchback stands out from the crowd. All levels have sports seats and leather steering wheel but only Level 3 has leather upholstery for that added luxury. Electric Minis come with a choice of either 16-inch or 17-inch alloys but (as you’d expect) the Level 3 has the most options.
If you love a few handy gadgets, you won’t be disappointed. A 6.5-inch display, along with the Mini nav system comes as standard. Upgrading to Level 3 will get you the Navigation Plus Pack as standard which includes an 8.8-inch touchscreen display, enhanced Bluetooth, wireless charging, a concierge service and access to the Mini Connected platform for remote features. Headlights on all spec levels are LED which ensure you stay safe and visible even in the darkest of British winters. There are no official safety stats for the electric Mini as it's so new, but with its BMW heritage, you can be confident it’ll be built to the German manufacturer’s high standards.
There’s a three-year warranty with unlimited mileage on all new Minis, while the battery comes with an eight-year warranty. For more information about servicing and warranties, head to the Mini website.

Frequently Asked Questions
What you pay for your new Mini Electric hatchback will depend on depreciation. Cars depreciate by around 40% in their first three years and the factors that influence this will include aspects like initial payment, monthly rental cost, contract hire length, and trim level. Also, be aware of any excess mileage charge before signing up.
There are numerous benefits to car leasing compared to buying. Not only does leasing mean you can drive away in a brand new electric vehicle, you can upgrade to a newer spec and design in just a couple of years depending on the length of your contract hire plan. When your lease deal ends, you simply hand the keys back to your leasing broker which leaves you free to choose another top offer - from Mini and their John Cooper Works cars, or from rival cars from the likes of Peugeot, Kia and Hyundai.
