By means of a built-in 4G-SIM Card and the MINI Connected App, MINI has been offering its customers a seamless connection between smartphone and vehicle since 2018. As of today, a new app generation is available and offers a new design, with intuitive and simplified user experience and new services supporting individual electromobility.


"With the new app generation, we are taking a further step in extending the digital customer experience around our vehicles and thus meeting the increased customer demand for digital services and functions," said Peter Henrich, Senior Vice President BMW Group Connected Company Customer. "With the My BMW App and the MINI App, we seamlessly integrate our vehicles into the digital lifestyle of our customers. Both apps offer a host of features, both for the daily use of the vehicle and in the personal interaction with us as a brand, which we are continuously expanding".    


Stephan Durach, Senior Vice President BMW Group Connected Company Development, Technical Operations, adds: “My BMW and the MINI App set the standard for usability, safety and reliability. User feedback and information on the behaviour of users of the previous generation of the app were critical to the development process. The two apps include popular and frequently used functions, and the new platform allows us to continuously add new functionality, adapted to our customers’ needs.”

 App features and highlights*:


IMMEDIATE ACCESS TO VEHICLE STATUS AND FUNCTIONS.
 
The MINI App is the new universal interface to the vehicle. It displays information about the status of the vehicle and allows access to remote services for instance, locating the vehicle or locking and unlocking the doors.

HANDY NAVIGATION FEATURES.
 
Destinations can be sent directly from the app to the vehicle's navigation system where maps shows the current traffic situation, petrol stations and charging stations as well as parking facilities.


SMART SERVICES TO SUPPORT CUSTOMERS’ E-MOBILITY LIFESTYLE.
 
The app offers new services for the MINI Countryman Plug-In Hybrid and the MINI Electric, offering an improved overview of the electrical range, charging status and charging history. Using the app’s charging and climate timer, customers can optimise the charging process by defining specific time windows and departure times. Pre-conditioning is also possible, allowing drivers to heat the vehicle in winter or cool it in summer for increased comfort.


THE SHORTEST WAY TO MINI AFTERSALES SERVICE.
 
The MINI App enables direct contact with a MINI Retailer, allowing customers to keep an eye on their vehicle's service requirements. The MINI Roadside Assistance can also be reached via the app in the event of problems with the vehicle. If consent is given, service staff can see the location and status of the vehicle for immediate over-the-air assistance. At the same time, customers can track the arrival of the service vehicle. The MINI Online Shop can also be conveniently accessed from the app.


The new app generation can be downloaded free of charge from the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.


*Full app functionality requires the remote services option.

CO2 emission information.

The values for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption shown were determined in a standardised test cycle according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version currently applicable. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers transmission (automatic or manual) and the different wheels and tyres available on the selected model and may vary during the configuration.

The values of the vehicles labelled with (*), are already based on the test cycle according to the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to allow a comparison between vehicles. More information on the transition from NEDC to WLTP test procedures can be found here.

These figures are intended for comparison purposes and may not be representative of what a user achieves under usual driving conditions. For plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles the figures have been obtained using a combination of battery power and petrol fuel after the battery had been fully charged. Plug-in hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles require mains electricity for charging. The CO2 emissions labels are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the Passenger Car (Fuel consumption and CO2 Emissions Information) Regulations 2001, as amended. They are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle.

A guide on fuel economy and CO2 emissions which contains data for all new passenger car models is available at any point of sale free of charge. For further information you can also visit this link.
