The mountain calls, the MINI Electric is coming.

Some me-time in the snow, a day in the mountains – for residents living in the city of Munich this is an attractive option. Driving the all-electric model of the British premium brand even allows the short trip to the Alps to be undertaken locally with zero emissions. The range is sufficient to go on a trip to the winter sports region of Sölden in Austria and then come back home, in each case without the need for a stopover to recharge the batteries.

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 bmw.de/wltp.

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