Why did you choose the SEAT Mii?

It had a reasonable range when compared with other electric cars in a similar price band.

 

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

  • A good range
  • heated seats
  • an easy to use DAB radio.

 

Negatives – List 3 or more things that you really don’t like about this electric car.

7.4 kW home charging was difficult to set-up through the SEAT Connect app. However, this now works perfectly after changing the maximum charging rate in the app.

 

Have you experienced any faults with the car? If so, what have they been?

None so far.

 

What are the standout tech features of your car?

It is surprisingly well-equipped with cruise control and lane-keeping assistance.

 

Surprise us! Tell us something people wouldn’t readily know about this car.

One-pedal driving is a revelation! Using the car’s regenerative braking in its highest mode reduces the need to use the brakes.
