The first Seat Mii Electric should hit dealerships in Europe at the very end of 2019.
Seat is finally introducing its first all-electric series-produced model, the Seat Mii electric which is one of the Volkswagen Group’s triplets (along with the upcoming refreshed Volkswagen e-up! and all-new Škoda CITIGOe iV).
The Spanish derivative of the e-Up! will enter production in Bratislava (Slovakia) in Q4 2019, while pre-sales start in September. Initially, the car will be available in Germany, Netherlands, Norway, France, Spain, Austria, UK, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium, Denmark, Finland and Sweden.
Interestingly, Seat Mii electric will be exclusively electric as the production of the conventional Seat Mii will end in July (that’s now) without the refresh.
According to Seat, the Mii electric will be not only one of the most affordable EVs but also priced on par with an ICE equivalent.
“Thanks to its compact dimensions, the Mii electric offers great agility while driving in the city and while parking. The Mii electric has been designed to meet the demands of modern driving, whether you are traversing the bustling streets of the inner city or navigating through suburbia, taking up the mantle from the combustion engine Mii when production of that vehicle ends in July 2019.
The move to an exclusively all-electric powertrain, opens the doors to a driving experience that fits more naturally with the city car’s environment.”
On the technical side, Seat Mii electric gets the same 36.8 kWh battery pack and 61 kW electric motor as the other triplets. The difference will be in details and characteristics for the brand.
“The Mii electric’s exterior is subtlely refreshed with the introduction of electric lettering at the rear, electric stickers on the side and 16” alloy wheels in matte cosmo grey. Inside, delicate changes include a new dashboard with SEAT IML foil, ambient lighting, sporty and heated seats, black sport leather steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake. In addition, the Mii electric comes equipped with Lane Assist as a standard equipment. But the greatest transformation comes under the bonnet.”
“The all-electric city car is the first model to include SEAT CONNECT, giving remote access and management of the vehicle. Customers can review driving data, parking position, the vehicle’s status, including doors and lights, and the ability to control air-conditioning remotely, all from their smartphone app.”
“Simplicity is key to the trim levels and options available, with a lean and easy offering. Two trim levels will be available, with five optional equipment packs: Garage, Easy Flex, Below Zero, Home Charge and FAST (DC Charging). There will also be a choice of five colours: Deep Black, Candy White, Tornado Red, Costa Blue and Tungsten Silver.”
