MINI is proud to announce today the local pricing and arrival schedule for its highly-anticipated first-ever all-electric MINI.

Priced at $59,900*(RRP incl. GST, excl. on-road and delivery costs), a limited number of launch special “First Edition” variants will arrive in New Zealand dealerships from August 2020.

The MINI Electric Hatch is based on the striking design of the three-door ICE-powered MINI

Cooper S but with exterior accents unique to MINI’s first-ever EV.

Four colours are available at launch, paired with two wheel combinations to endow the car with a sporty yet futuristic look.

The MINI Electric Hatch is powered by a 32.6kWh latest-generation lithium-ion battery, producing an impressive 135kW of power that results in a 0-100km/h acceleration time of just 7.3 seconds.

Capable of a 233-kilometre drive range on a single charge, according to latest WLTP measurement standards, the MINI Electric Hatch is also perfect for metropolitan dwellers and intra-city commutes, able to achieve an 80% charge in just 35 minutes when using a 50kW DC public charger.

The MINI Electric Hatch retains MINI’s famed “go-kart” driving feel by positioning powertrain components low and near the centre of the car in a T-shape, coupled with suspension tuning unique to the car for a low centre of gravity that produces sharp, responsive handling.

The MINI Electric Hatch is built in the UK at MINI Plant Oxford, the birthplace and heart of MINI production.

Interested fans can now select from four exciting specifications of the MINI Electric Hatch and make an online deposit with the MINI dealer of their choice without ever leaving the comfort of their home.

“The arrival of the MINI Electric Hatch in New Zealand heralds a new chapter for the brand - a charge into the future of electromobility without compromising the marque’s core values of creativity, vibrancy and smart urbanity,” said Brett Waudby, General Manager of MINI Australia and New Zealand.

“It is wonderful to see such a positive response we are getting to the car. Our dealers are extremely excited to add this model to our customer offering, which is sure to be an absolute thrill to drive,” Mr. Waudby concluded.  

Key highlights of the MINI Electric Hatch include:

  • Four colour choices
  • 17-inch MINI Electric Power Spoke wheels paired to White Silver and Midnight Black
  • 17-inch MINI Tentacle Spoke wheels paired to Chili Red and British Racing Green
  • Adaptive LED Headlights
  • MINI Electric Interior
  • Leather Cross Punch Sports Seats with seat heating for driver and front passenger
  • Head-Up Display
  • Digital Dash Display
  • Harman Kardon Hi-Fi Sound System

The MINI Electric Hatch includes the following technical data specifications:

  • 32.6kWh Lithium Ion Battery
  • 135kW / 270Nm
  • 233km range
  • 0-100 km/h in 7.3 seconds
  • Front wheel drive

CO2 emission information.

Fuel consumption, CO2 emission figures and power consumption were measured using the methods required according to Regulation VO (EC) 2007/715 as amended. They refer to vehicles on the automotive market in Germany. For ranges, the NEDC figures take into account differences in the selected wheel and tyre size, while the WLTP figures take into account the effects of any optional equipment.

All figures are already calculated on the basis of the new WLTP test cycle. NEDC values listed have been calculated back to the NEDC measurement procedure where applicable. WLTP values are used as a basis for the definition of taxes and other vehicle-related levies that are (also) based on CO2 emissions and, where applicable, for the purposes of vehicle- specific subsidies. Further information on the WLTP and NEDC measurement procedures is also available at
