The Spanish novelty, which will be positioned as the urban electric vehicle of the 2020 model year, is finally shown, which is called “in all its glory”. Sales are scheduled for this fall.

In a recent interview, representatives of the Spanish brand confirmed that an electric version of the city car Mii would be launched this fall. That in turn will mark the first step of the brand to enter the market with a model that has zero emissions.

Offering a preliminary range of 260 kilometers per charge and having an electric motor with a capacity of 82 horsepower, the serial version of the Spanish baby will be called Mii Electric.

SEAT states that the new model will combine “dynamism, urban design, improved engine and new connectivity levels with affordability and low cost.”

At first glance, it can hardly be assumed that this car is electric. The design is almost the same as that of the Mii with a gasoline engine, with the same grille and headlights. In addition to the emblem and gray light-alloy wheels as standard, the only difference is the absence of an exhaust pipe.

The interior has an updated dashboard, which is again similar to the similar one in the electric VW Up !. Also there is an inscription “Mii Electric”. But if the exterior is nothing remarkable, then the engineering under the hood should be given attention. SEAT claims that an electric motor that produces a torque of 212 Nm is ideal for urban traffic. In fact, the Spanish company has already indicated acceleration time from 0 to 50 km / h, equal to 3.9 seconds, and the maximum speed is 130 km / h.

The machine is equipped with a 36.8 kWh battery, which should be enough for 260 km. Charging up to 80% using a 7.2 kW charger takes about four hours.
