Mini EV Pricing Discussion

Starting this thread to get some opinions on what pricing could be like come 2019. Right now I think we can see it sell for around the high $30,000 range since the BMW i3 sells for $43,xxx and Mini Coopers start out around $25,000.

From what I noticed is that Mini has always undercut BMW so where ever i3 pricing goes, we can expect the Mini EV to sit right under it.

If MINI is going to launch EV model with the starting price of somewhere around $25,000-$30,000 that would be more than acceptable. Of course, it's too early to predict this kind of stuff, but I don't expect to see a lot of trim levels for MINI EV (maximum 3), so if the price is going to vary between $25k to $45k for the highest trim level, I'll consider it as a great launch of the new model.

This is the price I want to see for MINI EV. If this electric model is going to have a price of $25k I'll buy one without any considerations. But, I guess it's too early to talk about it now.

If the Mini EV is slated to be an affordable model like the Bolt then we can expect it to start at around $30,000 and then go upwards depending on trim. Or it could even go for a bit less because some government bodies are pulling the electric car incentives.

In Canada, we have $14,000 rebate incentive for EV purchase, maybe by the time MINI entry the market the government will increase them. If MINI's going to price their EV model somewhere around Bolt's price range, it will be more than affordable for me.

A $14,000 rebate on most electric cars would bring it to an affordable price range, but that's just Canada and they have to take into account the States, which may not be as generous. If MINI caters to that market in terms of pricing, then we could see a sub $30k ev from them, which is good news for you because that means an even lower price after incentives.

In the USA people have EV incentives too, but they are not as high as Canadians. The federal Internal Revenue Service tax credit is for $2,500 to $7,500 (which is approximately $9.5k Canadian) per new EV purchased for use in the U.S.

I believe a base model Mini runs just under $30k. So I suppose its safe to assume with the general upscale in price of EV's, that the base Mini should start somewhere in the mid $30's. Price point is going to be a huge factor in its success, as a lot of people aren't buying the cheaper ICE's that are currently available. There's definitely some big incentives for those purchasing in Canada, but we're likely to see those decline as more electrics get on the road.

Correct!

From what i have seen the mid $30k range is a sweet spot for pricing. The closer they can get to the lower $30k range the better they can compete. Mini not being as luxurious or feature packed as BMW gives me some hope in a lower price point.

It's official, the Mini Cooper SE is priced from $30,750, a reasonable starting MSRP considering its not so great range.

Electric 2020 Mini Cooper SE Priced at $30,750
The battery-powered Mini goes on sale in March at a segment-competitive price and carrying loads of standard equipment.
  • Mini is joining the electric-vehicle fray with the all-new 2020 Mini Cooper SE.
  • The price point of the Mini Cooper SE, starting at $30,750, puts it in line with competitors including the Nissan Leaf.
  • This fully electric vehicle will go on sale in the U.S. in March 2020.

Mini unveiled the fully electric 2020 Mini Cooper SE, and we now know that the EV will start at $30,750, in line with the Nissan Leaf and undercutting established competitors including the Chevrolet Bolt EV. The price is before federal or state tax incentives for electric vehicles.

The SE preserves the distinctive appearance and sense of fun that characterize other Mini Cooper models. The car is based on the Mini Hardtop, raised 0.7 inch to make room for a floor-mounted battery pack. The new EV comes with standard Apple CarPlay compatibility, a 6.5-inch display with navigation, heated front seats, LED headlights and fog lights, and active-safety features including forward-collision warning, pedestrian detection, and rain-sensing wipers and headlights. The front-wheel-drive SE's electric motor makes 181 horsepower and 199 lb-ft of torque and it sources power from a 32.6-kWh battery pack.

Mini claims the SE can be fast-charged to 80 percent in 35 minutes or, using home AC charging at 7.4 kW, to 100 percent in four hours. The car has two-mode regenerative braking to maximize battery charge.

The SE will go on sale in the U.S. next March and will be available with three trim levels, although Mini has only released the price for the base model so far. The EPA has not yet released range estimates, but in Europe, the SE has a range of 146 to 168 miles.
