MINI has taken its digital ownership experience to new levels with the launch of the all-new MINI App – now available in New Zealand.


The all-new MINI App, developed fully in-house by BMW Group, features an entirely new design and interface that improves user experience and provides owners with intuitive ways to interact with their MINI via their smart device.


The MINI App runs on both iOS and Android operating systems and can be downloaded free of charge from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.


It acts as a new universal interface with the car, providing information on the vehicle’s status at all times. It also enables remote operation of functions, such as vehicle locating and locking/unlocking the doors. 


Destination addresses can be sent from a smartphone directly to the vehicle’s navigation system. The new MINI App also offers more functions for electric vehicles than its predecessor, the MINI Connected app. For example, customers can access detailed information on the car’s electric range, charge status and charging history.


The app’s charge timing and climate control timing functions also allow the charging process to be optimised by setting particular time slots and departure times. Added to which, the vehicle interior can be pre-conditioned (by heating the interior in winter and cooling it in summer, for example) to increase comfort levels. 


Last but not least, the MINI App also allows the customer to contact their MINI Service Partner directly and provides them with an overview of their vehicle’s servicing requirements at all times.


The MINI App is a new development that will fully replace the MINI Connected app from July 2021 and provide a technologically future-proof foundation.


Its scalable universal architecture allows for continuous updating of new functions and customer requests to be implemented easily, with multiple updates every year allowing functionality to be expanded.

  • Garage – Keep track of all vehicles in one app (for multiple vehicle owners)
  • Vehicle Status

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

For further details of the official fuel consumption figures and official specific CO2 emissions of new cars, please refer to the following web site
