Why did you choose this car?
I love the MINI, we were looking at going electric in a few years but with the increased value of second-hand vehicles, it was the right time. We were looking for a car that would be our local runabout and with the range sold to us as *up to 148 miles per charge, we went for it. We had our Pod Point installed and started EV motoring in November. The car shifts like nobody’s business! An awesome drive with instant torque.


Positives – List 3 or more reasons why you love this car.

On launch, it sounds like something out of a Marvel film! I love the noise it makes. The noise changes when it senses a pedestrian.
