Your MINI EV range will alleviate your fears of running out of charge in the middle of nowhere. Take a look at what we mean with our easy-to-follow strategy.
For right now, there is one pure EV and one plug-in hybrid (PHEV) made by MINI. The manufacturer’s lone EV gets plenty of range for weekend getaways or when you want to take a summer road trip departing from Hamilton Township.
What is the range of MINI electric cars? The 2024 MINI Electric gives you 114 miles of range on a single charge. You’ll easily reach another big urban area or public charging point on a summer excursion.
Meanwhile, the 2023 MINI Countryman PHEV gives you 17 miles of all-electric range once you leave your house. You can commute with just electricity if you’re within range of your workplace, but then the vehicle converts to gasoline power after that, giving you 300 miles of total range.
What is the range of MINI electric cars? You can see that the full EV gets 114 miles between charges while the PHEV gets 300 miles as a hybrid.
Charging your MINI EV at home is great for commutes and short jaunts around Mount Laurel. Public charging stations are everywhere in our area, and you can use them to charge on the go for your PHEV or the full EV. As you explore other destinations during vacations or weekends away, you can find any public charging station with this national map of charging stations from the U.S. Department of Energy. You can also use your vehicle’s GPS to locate the nearest public charging station as well as the MINI app.
Traffic and delays can be maddening at times. For an EV, you must account for road construction, detours, and rush-hour traffic so you don’t get stranded with a depleted battery.
Just like with a gasoline engine, your driving habits can decrease your MINI EV range. Accelerate and decelerate gradually, and stay at or below the speed limit. You’ll also want to leave enough room between you and other vehicles on the road.
Weather can factor into your MINI EV’s range. Temperatures that are too hot or too cold can alter the range of your EV battery. Consumer Reports states that the ideal outdoor temperature to maximize your MINI EV range is around 80 degrees Fahrenheit. As such, running your air conditioning or heater on full blast could decrease the EV’s range. Use the heat or air minimally while still remaining comfortable as you drive in extreme temperatures.
