The Seat Mii Electric is now available to order in the UK. Priced from £19,300 (including PiCG), Seat’s first fully electric vehicle is available for £199 per month on a PCP deal. This is after a £4,399 customer deposit, with Seat contributing £500 to the cost.
With the opening of order books for the Seat Mii, Seat is also promising special offers for the first 300 retail customers who place an order for the small electric car before 31st December 2019. These customers will receive a wall box charger fitted at their home, a 3-pin home charging cable, three years’ servicing and roadside assistance free of charge.
The Seat Mii electric will open for ordering across the manufacturer’s UK dealer network on 24th October. Richard Harrison, Managing Director, Seat UK, said: “The arrival of Mii electric marks the start of a comprehensive programme to electrify the SEAT range, which will see further electrified models arriving in 2020. Mii electric is the ideal first step into full electric motoring.”
Seat’s first all-electric production vehicle also lays the groundwork for future models to join the family, with more BEVs and PHEVs due in 2020 and beyond. These include the all-electric Seat el-Born, the sister model to the VW ID.3 as well as plug-in hybrid versions of Tarraco and New Leon and high-performance plug-in hybrid models from Cupra, including the Formentor and Leon. At the beginning of 2018, Seat president Luca de Meo said: “2020 will be SEAT’s year of electrification.” Now the Spanish Volkswagen subsidiary is following through.
