THE NUMBERS EXPLAINED
This tool provides an indicative estimate only.
The Charge Frequency, Battery Usage and Fuel Savings numbers provided in the results are based on the mileage, fuel type and miles per gallon (mpg) you entered in the tool at the start. Figures for electricity and fuel prices have been taken from the average fuel figures published by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, June 2023.
The figures shown are an indicative estimation of the costs for electricity for a MINI Electric battery electric vehicle compared to the fuel costs for another vehicle according to the data entered by the user. The electricity consumption of the MINI is calculated on the basis of the figures obtained in the new WLTP test. Fuel economy and CO2 results for the new MINI Electric: mpg (l/100km): not applicable, CO2emissions: 0 g/km, Electric range*: 140 – 145 miles**. These figures were obtained after the battery had been fully charged. The new MINI Electric is a battery electric vehicle requiring mains electricity for charging. There is a new test for fuel consumption, CO2 and electric range figures. The electric range shown was achieved using the new test procedure.
Figures shown are for comparability purposes. Only compare fuel consumption, CO2 and electric range figures with other cars tested to the same technical procedures.
* These figures may not reflect real life driving results, which will depend upon a number of factors including the starting charge of the battery, accessories fitted (post-registration), variations in weather, driving styles and vehicle load.
** These values are based on figures obtained using the new WLTP test.
The starting figures for electricity and fuel costs (used if you do not change them) are the average fuel figures published by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, August 2022 of petrol £1.43/litre and diesel £1.46/litre and the average home charging electricity cost of £0.30p/kWh published by Ofgem
Currently, you will pay 2% corporate car tax in 2023 if you purchase a MINI Electric company car. This is based on Government figures published at time of publication and may be subject to change.
The average speeds used to illustrate different driving conditions are based on the average speed values, with stops, used in the WLTC Class 3 test cycles. These figures are sourced in km/h for each cycle, translated to MPH and rounded. Urban driving conditions reflects the Low Test Cycle. Suburban driving conditions reflects the Medium Test Cycle. Motorway driving reflects the ExHigh Test Cycle. Where range figures are required for calculations, figures from the WLTC Class 3 test cycles have been used.
Actual results will vary according to a number of variable factors, including your mileage driven, your fuel and electricity costs, your charging frequency and methods, and driving conditions and style.
Explore MINI Electric calculations only show a comparison between the indicative cost of charging your electric vehicle at home and the indicative petrol or diesel costs for driving the stated mileage.
While the results may show a fuel cost saving, the purchase price of a MINI Electric vehicle may be greater than a traditional MINI internal combustion engine model.
The range on a single charge is calculated on the basis of a WLTP test. The actual range depends on a variety of factors, especially: wheel and tyre sizes selected, personal driving behaviour, selected route, weather conditions, usage of heating/cooling and preconditioning. Depending on external factors, such as the mains voltage or the outside temperature, the real charging times might deviate from the charging times shown in this tool. The charging times shown have been measured on the basis of an outside temperature of 25°C. Charging time corresponds to a 100% charge. Charging times are approximate and may vary depending on various factors such as the type and condition of the charger and the temperature of the battery at the point of use.
The charge time calculations are based on charging solutions transferring energy at the following power levels:
- Wallbox (AC) 7.4kW
- Public Charging (AC) 7.4kW
- Occasional 3 pin plug (AC) 2.1kW
- Public Rapid Charging (DC) 50kW
The optimal charge time using a DC power supply is achieved when charging your MINI Electric to 80% battery capacity.
