CHARGING AT HOME.
HOME CHARGE UNITS.
A homecharge unit such as bp pulse is a brilliant way to charge your MINI Electric. And with a £350 government home charging point grant towards installation available now, it’s the perfect time to do it.
MINI Electric comes with two AC charging cables as standard. The first cable fits a home wall socket and uses the standard AC power supply. It’s perfect for occasional charging, or when your MINI Electric is resting overnight. The second charging cable is designed to work with a Homecharge unit or public charging point, where the AC power supply is increased. Allowing you to charge MINI Electric much quicker at home and when you’re out and about.
MINI Electric drivers can get the first 5,000 miles totally free, by switching to OVO Energy.* Their EV Everywhere Economy 7 tariff offers up to 5k free miles for one year when you charge off-peak (between midnight and 7am). Other tariff offers are available too, exclusive for MINI Electric owners
With the MINI Connected app, you can control many of the MINI Electric functions through your phone. Check the range and top up your charging. Use maps and real time traffic information to plan and schedule journeys. You can even set the air con to the perfect temperature remotely.
CHARGING ON THE GO.
The fastest charging points are typically found at motorway service stations and on main routes. They use a DC supply to charge rapidly at a rating of up to 100kw. Using this method, the MINI Electric can charge to 80% in as little as 20 minutes.
Fast charging points are the most common and deliver an AC supply at a higher rating of either 7kw or 22kw. While MINI Electric can use both, it has a maximum rating of 7kw with an AC supply. Which means a full charge would take 3-4 hours.
Slow charging points are less common and tend to be older devices. They deliver an AC supply and are rated at up to 3kw or 6kw. If you have enough time, MINI Electric can achieve a full charge in 6-12 hours. You can also use this method by charging with a standard 3 pin plug at home.
MINI Charging gives you instant access to one of the largest public charging networks and will allow you to seamlessly connect to over 11,000 electric vehicle charging stations in the UK. It’ll also give you access to stations in all other MINI Charging markets within Europe. Currently in the UK the MINI Electric network is connected to charging points from key operators such as bp pulse, ChargepointNetwork UK and others, as well as high-power charging stations available via IONITY. If you took delivery of a MINI Countryman Plug-in Hybrid or MINI Electric during or after February 2021 we’ve got more good news. You will get an additional bp pulse package free for 12 months, providing preferential rates at over 5,000 electric car charging stations on the bp pulse network.
