Seat Mii Electric Teased As The Brand’s First-Ever EV

With the Volkswagen e-Up! on sale for a few years now and the Skoda Citigo-e iV joining it a couple of weeks ago, it was only logical that Seat would follow the same route with a zero-emission version of its own city car.

Aptly called the Mii Electric, it is the Spanish brand’s first-ever EV and will be shown to the world in Oslo, Norway, which is considered the electric vehicle capital of Europe. The car will be presented as part of the ‘Seat on Tour’ roadshow, will officially enter the market before the end of 2019 and will become available for pre-order in September.

“Accessibility is one of the most outstanding Seat values and the ‘Seat on Tour’ initiative reinforces it by bringing our novelties close to some of the key countries for the brand”, said President Luca de Meo. “As a world reference in electric mobility, it makes complete sense to take the Mii Electric as a world premiere to Norway and showcase Seat’s latest technology with two products that will shake the market in 2020, the Seat el-Born and Cupra Formentor. Now is the right time and Oslo is the right place.”

Cupra Formentor Concept

The specs of the Mii Electric haven’t been announced yet, but since it’s a sister-car to the e-Up! and Citigo-e iV, we know what to expect; namely, an electric motor that produces 83 PS (82 hp / 61 kW) and 210 Nm (155 lb-ft) of torque. The battery is bigger in the zero-emission Skoda and has a 36.8 kWh capacity, allowing it to travel for up to 265 km (165 miles) on a single charge in the WLTP cycle.

Skoda Citigo-e iV

In terms of performance, the Citigo-e iV can accelerate to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 12.5 seconds and max out at 130 km/ (81 mph).

We also expect similar levels of equipment, with the electric Skoda getting a redesigned instrument panel, climate control, smartphone docking station, leather trim in upper grades and several safety assistance items.

Seat el-Born

Subsequent to unveiling the Mii Electric and displaying the el-Born and Cupra Formentor in Oslo, Seat and Cupra will take their models to Liverpool on June 18, where they will also display some classic models. After that, they will stop at the Frankfurt Motor Show and in Paris in September, before ending the trip in Milan two months later. The tour might be extended to Latin America, but no official decision has been taken yet.

    I’ve only seen the petrol Mii once on the road. It’s basically a dead model. You can get the Skoda Citigo cheaper and they’re identical cars.

  • Bart

    For this car to make sense it needs to be cheap. But it won’t be.

  • Christian

    what’s the point teasing a car you already knows about… I mean, it gonna like like the petrol Mii, uses same electric engine from the Shitygo and FukUp, so…
