Let’s Take A Look At Seat’s First-Ever EV: The Mii Electric

Seat has followed in the footsteps of the Volkswagen e-Up! and Skoda Citigoe iV with the Mii Electric. Replacing the internal combustion engine (ICE) versions, the brand’s first EV will enter production later this year and customer deliveries will begin in 2020.

Pricing will be announced in due course, but the Spanish automaker, which is part of the Volkswagen Group, said that it will be one of the most affordable electric vehicles in the market.

For a daily commuter, the Mii Electric has sufficient range. With the 36.8 kWh battery fully charged, it can travel for up to 260 km (162 miles) in the WLTP cycle. Charging it from 0 to 80 percent takes only one hour with the DC fast charger, whereas plugging it into a regular household socket is an overnight process.

Also Watch: VW e-Up Is Definitely not for Drivers with Range Anxiety

With an 83 PS (82 hp / 61 kW) and 212 Nm (156 lb-ft) of instant torque electric motor, the Mii Electric obviously won’t break any speed records. Still, it will be relative agile for a city car, capable of sprinting from rest to 50 km/h (0-31 mph) in 3.9 seconds.

Aside from the exterior badging and new wheels, the design hasn’t changed at all. Take a look at the cabin, however, and you will see a new dashboard, as well as leather on the steering wheel, handbrake lever and gear knob, ambient lighting and heated seats. It also supports remote access via the smartphone app and gets standard cruise control, lane departure warning and traffic sign recognition. At 251 liters (8.9 cu-ft), boot space is also unchanged.

Seat will eventually allow journalists to have an official go in the Mii Electric, but until then, AutoTrader had the chance to check it out in person, making a walkaround video about the Spanish EV.
