Seat Mii Electric Becomes Brand’s First EV, Marks End Of ICE-Powered Model

The Seat Mii is the last of Volkswagen Group’s trio of city cars to get an all-electric variant.

As with the Skoda Citigoᵉ iV that was unveiled last month, the Mii Electric is the brand’s first electric vehicle and paves the way for more EVs and PHEVs joining the family in the future, including the all-electric Seat el-Born.

At the same time, it also marks the end of the Mii with internal combustion engines as production for those variants ends in July. Unsurprisingly, the Seat Mii Electric shares the electric drivetrain with its Skoda sibling. More specifically, it features an electric motor that produces 82 HP (83 PS/61kW) and 212 Nm (156 lb-ft) of instant torque.

Linked to a single speed transmission, it enables the Mii Electric to sprint from 0 to 50 km/h (31 mph) in a mere 3.9 seconds – and Seat says this is very important, because it allows the car to jump in and out of traffic with ease. The motor gets its juice from a 36.8 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which provides up to 260 km (161.5 miles) of range on a single charge based on the WLTP test cycle.

Much like the Citigoᵉ iV, the Mii Electric doesn’t look that different from the gasoline-powered versions. Exterior changes include the introduction of “electric” lettering at the rear, “electric” stickers on the side and 16-inch alloys in matte Cosmo Grey. On the inside, the Mii Electric gains a new dashboard, ambient lighting, heated seats, as well as leather wrapped steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake.

The Mii Electric also brings more standard safety tech compared to the regular model, including Lane Assist and Traffic sign recognition. It’s also the Spanish brand’s first model to include Seat Connect, giving remote access and management of the vehicle via a smartphone app.

When it becomes available in select European markets in the first quarter of 2020, the Mii Electric will allegedly be “one of the most affordable electric vehicles on sale.” Customers will be able to place orders this autumn in Germany, Netherlands, Norway, France, Spain, Austria, UK, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium, Denmark, Finland and Sweden. Production will begin in Bratislava, Slovakia in the fourth quarter of 2019.

    its not that quick.

    • Haha, try. In electric car this is effortless. In an ICE car you need to rev your engine and look like a racer. So in reality this Mii and the VW Up is the quickest from the lights.

  • A CAR LIKE THAT NEEDS SOME BRIGHT CHEERY COLORS NOT DRAB BLACK. IT’S NOT A LIMO.
