MINI FUEL CONSUMPTION & EFFICIENCY.
Dashing good looks. Irresistible charm. Tonnes of fun on every drive. These are just some of the (many) reasons to choose MINI. But did you know our cars are a seriously efficient option too? In fact, we’ve spent the last decade on a mission to improve our efficiency and lower our CO2 emissions, achieving a whopping 40% reduction across the MINI range – so far.
From fuel-saving engine innovations to smart servicing, let’s take a look at some of the cutting-edge tech and handy hacks and that have helped us boost our MINI fuel efficiency and save you a few quid – without losing any of the fun that make us marvellously MINI.
IMPROVING MINI FUEL EFFICIENCY.
BRAKE ENERGY REGENERATION.Regenerative braking is a handy mechanism found in all our cars. It takes the usually wasted kinetic energy that’s created when you slow down and uses it to charge the battery – which runs things like your air-conditioning system and radio. That way, your engine is doing less work and less fuel is consumed.
SHIFT POINT DISPLAY.This handy system helps you move into the most fuel-efficient gear at just the right time. An arrow will appear on your dashboard when it’s time to change up.
AUTO START/STOP.This feature does what it says on the tin. Whenever your MINI is stationary (it could be stopped at traffic lights or perhaps you’ve pulled over) it automatically switches off the engine to save any fuel being used.
VOLUME-REGULATED OIL PUMP AND SWITCHABLE WATER PUMP.The innovative oil pump delivers only as much oil that is needed by the engine at any one time. The result? Reduced drive power and fuel consumption. The on-demand water pump featured in the coolant circuit offers a similar effect. It’s only switched on when the engine has reached its regular operating temperature, helping to save fuel in the warming-up phase.
ELECTRIC POWER ASSISTED STEERING (EPAS).EPAS is more efficient than hydraulic steering because it doesn't rely on a hydraulic pump powered by the engine, which can create drag and reduce fuel efficiency. Instead, it uses an electric motor to assist with steering, which only consumes energy when needed. Just what we like to hear.
IT’S ALL IN THE ENGINE.
WE’RE EXCEEDING STANDARDS.
