the Seat Mii are distinguished by the price tag. The cost of the basic 264.900 dollars. The pull of 60,000 crowns in the miljöbonus, and you will pay the net 204.900 crowns, and can be run on a new electric car for two dollars per mile in energy costs.
This is a breakthrough in the electric car market. For a financial break through.
as we Count up all the running costs of a planned travel distance of 2,000 miles per year, the cost of each mile 21,16 sek. This makes the Seat Mii Electric it is by far the cheapest electric car you can buy. It is also one of the very cheapest cars you can own in all categories. It is cheaper to own than almost all of the petrol-driven small cars.
That's what you get for your money: basically, we mikrobilen of the Volkswagen group. The Seat Mii, the Skoda Citigo and the Volkswagen Up unveiled in 2011, and the body of the car has not been modified since that time.

in the above areas, in a car, which is 3.6 metres long and over two feet shorter than the cars in the Golf class. Sure legroom is limited in the back seat of the Mini, but the adults are in the same area. The ceiling height is sufficient, also, to the. Unfortunately, it is the only two-seater in the back.
the instrument panel is modern and understated, but at the same time, a very old-fashioned. It seems as if the producer was deliberately intended to be the owner of a vw Golf in 1985, not to be surprised as little as possible when he / she switch to the electric Seat's Mii.

I'll get a regular key in my hand, and to turn a normal ignition switch to start the engine. Laddkontakten sitting in the rear of a traditional bensinlock. The charge meter is designed in the shape of a regular tank. The only numbers that reveal the eldriften is räckviddsuppgiften next to the analog speedometer.
stand up for yourself. At the top of the panel features a phone holder, and load the Internet app, it can be seen from the ride data, and also to control the medievalet from his or her own smart phone. The position, however, is not optimal. When there is a backlight, it is almost impossible to read the phone screen.
the Car was sold, actually, as the electric car of 2013, Volkswagen's e-Up, but the battery was of a completely different design, and of 18.7 kilowatt-hours. In the day, indicating the Seat to 36.8 kilowatts. The battery is in spite of the energiökningen is only 15 pounds heavier, and also doesn't take up more space than the previous one. The range is set to the 26-miles of new, high cycle called WLTP. 26 miles is said to be that of what you are capable of, in cities, at least in the summer half of the year.

we will take it for a spin in a Stockholm, sweden is freezing and then, in the meantime, we are regularly 20 miles with a fully charged battery, despite the fact that we can park outside and heat up the bilkupén with the car's own battery.
40 kw. It takes one hour to quick top up of up to 80 per cent in the charge, and obtain an additional 15-to 20-mile range. However, to run a long distance with the rhythm – download the one hour run, 1.5 hour, requires a dedicated mind-set. Today, we build out a network of fast charging stations, which loads the next 50 to 100 kw, and sometimes much more than that. However, this does not help the Seat Mii, the owner, who is confined to a 40-kw.
Ombordladdaren is 7.2 kw. Those who buy an electric car, invests probably in a self-laddbox. Then, you can load a nearly empty battery overnight in your garage, with a current rating of 16 amps.
the cargo area has a soft floor, and below that, there is plenty of room for a skein of laddkablar a elbilsresenär has always been with us. The cargo area is not very spacious, but for the bilstorleken. The cargo floor is only 44 centimeters deep, and it is home to 251 litres of luggage.
like a dream come true. Runtomsikten is a very good car originates from a time gone by, when there was an advantage to be able to look out through the window. Vänddiametern of up to 9.8 feet is also helpful.

all in all feels like the Seat Mii, which is a electric vehicle which is suitable for the task it is designed for. To get from A to B in an urban environment, with regular charging at night, or in the workplace. The range is limited, but sufficient for quite a number of motorists.
the price tag is also a strong argument that you can't turn a blind eye to. The Seat Mii will cost 100 000 sek per year less than that of the electrically-powered rival, the Renault Zoe. A difference in price which is directly reflected in the decline in value. When we factor in all the costs, and the pulling of the environmental bonus, we come up to a mileage of a little over $ 20 per mile for the Seat Mii.
Biltidningen Technology, which works in conjunction with the daily News, says the magazine's most recent elbilstest the Seat Mii, not only is it the cheapest electric car they have tested. It is also one of the least expensive cars to own of all of the cars, the Technology, the World has been tested over the years.
However, you will need to make use of it. A lot of, otherwise, it is advisable to work with an electric car. Isn't it a bit ironic? The range, charging times, and the characteristics allow the electric vehicles the best fit for the kortkörning in the urban environment.
in the high-price tag, it is required that you run many more miles since the low energy of the car is justified economically.

But at the end of the day, the Seat Mii is an old design. This is reflected in the säkerhetsprestationen. It received five stars in crash tests by Euro NCAP in 2011, the most recent test in 2019 was the one to be content with three-star rating. Krocktestkraven have been made more stringent. Another reason for the shooting stars, is that the car lacks the autobromssystem, something that is not available as an option. The sin of a complete small car.
neither of the other models in the siblings – the Volkswagen e-Up and the Skoda Citigo, the new e- go to get autobroms. A poor result in crash tests and in the absence of the autobroms disqualify actually, the car in the new car market.
Times are changing, and the requirements have been tightened up. Still that would-be buyers is the spare fatalisten, which doesn't plan to interfere.
On the other hand, the majority of the swedes are sitting in a car with no autobromssystem without having to think ”will I survive?” every time they run an errand with the car.<
