Looking after your MINI during lockdown.

You may be tempted to wake your MINI up every so often by turning on the ignition without actually going anywhere. Try to keep this to a minimum. You’ll be better off just using your MINI, where possible, for those essential trips such as the supermarket. And, of course, avoid listening to the radio, using the headlights, heating or air conditioning system without the engine running as this can drain your battery.
Protecting your paintwork.
While it takes a break, your MINI might be parked in a place where it picks up some icky stuff. You may find all sorts of undesirable things on the paintwork, like bird lime and insect residue. If you do, remove it as soon as you can using warm water, shampoo and a sponge. That way you’ll avoid causing damage to the finish. If left too long you may find that you need to repair the area of paintwork so it matches the finish of the rest of the car.
Taking care of your electric battery.
Wondering how best to charge your MINI while it’s off the road? If you own a MINI Electric or MINI PHEV, you can simply keep it connected to your home charger or wall box as charging will stop once the battery is full. An EV or Hybrid High Voltage battery will remain charged for weeks, even if you’re not using it, as a Li-Ion battery has a low self-discharge rate.
