If you're tempted by this open top EV MINI, you'll need a couple of strong sweet tea after taking a look at the asking price, which is £52,500. Yes, really. To give you some perspective, the priciest version of the fixed-top MINI Electric you could choose - with plushest 'Resolute' trim - is £17,000 less. This model is based around 'Cooper SE' trim and you do at least get a lot of equipment for the asking figure. There are edition-specific 17" Electric Power Spoke 2-tone alloy wheels, made from 100 per cent secondary aluminium. Door handles, side scuttles and the surrounds of the front and rear lights are finished in Resolute Bronze, and the MINI logo and model lettering feature in Piano Black. And Edition-specific details are found on the side scuttles and door sill trims, featuring consecutive numbering for each of the 999 units available.
For the interior, 'MINI Yours' sports seats in a 'Leather Lounge' design offer seat heating and adjustable thigh support, while the multi-functional sports steering wheel - finished in Nappa leather - is also heated and features the MINI Electric logo. Interior surfaces are finished in Piano Black, while ambient lighting and signature MINI Electric yellow colour accents, such as the start-stop toggle switch, complete the interior design. Premium interior materials are complemented by eDrive services, providing the driver with current energy consumption, range, and tips for economical driving, all displayed on the MINI Head-Up Display. On longer journeys, the Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go function, and MINI Driving Assistant enhance comfort.
