SEAT Mii Electric price announced in Spain

SEAT Mii Electric configurator in Spain

In its domestic market Spain the SEAT Mii Electric has a starting price of 17.730 euros before government incentives. Not very far from the 479.900 CZK (18.824 euros) that the ŠKODA CITIGOe iV now costs in its domestic market Czech Republic. First 500 units were sold for 429.900 CZK (16.863 euros).

In Spain the SEAT Mii Electric is available in two versions, the Mii Electric and the Mii electric Plus. Let’s see them in more detail.

Paying for your car have a color is actually not optional, so consider at least 190 euros as a mandatory extra.

Anyway, the Mii electric Plus is definitely the variant to choose. Having heated seats in an electric car is a must have. You also want the optional Cruise Control, Rear parking sensors and Ambient lighting (white) package that costs 320 euros, even if you don’t intend to use it’ll make the resale value of your car much higher. Therefore we end up with a price of 19.390 euros before government incentives for a very nice electric car with a WLTP range of 260 km (162 miles).

In Spain the incentives are regional, for example in Madrid they are 5.500 euros.

Notice that the price in the configurator already includes Spanish VAT of 21 %, but as Rafael mentioned in the comment section it also includes a 3.500 € discount from the automaker. This discount is usually only given to buyers that finance their car with them.

Having a good electric car available in the A-segment is very important in Europe for at least two reasons. It’s a very strong segment in the car-sharing and rental fleets. Moreover, it’s very important for younger generations that want an electric car but can’t afford current prices that easily surpass 30.000 euros. With the VW electric triplets VW can start fixing its damaged reputation with youngsters after the dieselgate scandal.

Over the years on this website readers have seen me constantly complaining that automakers were overpricing electric cars on purpose and blaming battery technology for their inaction. Well, it seems that EU (European Union) emissions regulations are finally working and forcing automakers to embrace electric cars to avoid fines. Soon I can stop complaining about this issue.

However, while we’ll see electric cars becoming more affordable already next year, it’s in 2022 when we’ll finally see a considerable improvement in prices. I’m confident that by 2025 most of new cars sold in Europe will be electric.

Volkswagen is the biggest automaker in Europe and could end up paying almost 2 billion euros if they do not drastically reduce their average fleet emissions in the EU.

 

What do you think about the VW electric triplets?

  1. Decent range and affordable price adding the incentive. Bye bye gasoline.

    1. Yeah, too bad it is only a 4-seater 🙁
      I do have a family of 4, but that extra seat is quite useful, even for a second car.
      Damn you Honda, where’s the jazz EV?!?…

    2. Una gran aclaración, el precio de 17.400 euros no es real pues es solo si financias el coche con ellos y en el banco y al interes que ellos quieran……Al contado se va a 20.700 euros. Últimamente se tiene la malísima costumbre por parte de los medios de poner precios falsos pues la inmensa mayoria es por financiación. Un poco más de seriedad a todos los medios.

      1. Gracias por lo aviso Rafael.

  2. Muy buenos precios. Even the extras are quite affordable. Have you heard anything on the Portuguese front?

    1. Unfortunately no.

      “The Mii electric is being sold in 14 countries (Spain, Germany, Italy, France, the UK, Austria, Belgium, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden and Poland) since mid September and will come to market in early 2020.”

      Which is a shame, considering that Portugal despite its small size, was the 4º EU country with more electric car sales last year. Maybe we should inform SEAT about this fact…

      1. yeahp, just checked VW, Seat & Skoda Portuguese websites… no news of any of these triplets in the shore… They really don’t want to sell them here…

      2. Thanks for the info.

        Those prices are high, I hope they are wrong. Moreover, if that article is correct the CCS socket will be optional. I wonder if SKODA will bring its version to Portugal. I think they have the best equipped one and offer the best value for the money.

  3. There was price increase of Škoda CITIGOe iV last week here in Czech Republic after they sold first 500 cars (only sold, deliveries will start at the begining of the next year). Base price is now 479 900 Kč (top equipment included, previously for 30 000 Kč).

  4. In the Netherlands the starting price is € 23.400.
    But there is a temporary € 3.000 cash-back.
    Ordered a plus version with all options last week.

  5. And no active cooling???

    1. I believe this product does not have very active TMS… it’s a price to pay for affordability…

      Anyway, this is mainly a city car… believe it is not intended for long trips with multiple fast chargings in a single day. I just wonder if salesman inform people of this issue….

  6. Very good price in Spain, 17.900 Euro on the seat.es homepage, is this really price incl. VAT and before the incentive?
    and how high is the VAT on cars in Spain?
    Why I ask because:
    In Germany: 20.650 Euro, incl VAT and before the incentives (max. 4380 Euro) Plus version 1.100 Euro more.
    Sweden; 264.900 skr, (24.870 Euro), incl VAT (25%) and before incentives (60.000 skr, 5630 Euro). (only one version on the home page, called only “Mii electric”)
    It looks like as the distance increases from Spain, the price goes up, it would almost profitable to buy the car in Spain without the incentives and drive it to Sweden! Price after incentives in Sweden 19.240 Euro and Spain 17.900 before!
    ok, only, 1.340 Euro saving but still! Can this really be correct?
    Possible, best option, wait a year and by a second hand in Spain and import it to Sweden, principle no charges in Sweden for import from EU. Some few hundreds Euro only. That would be an adventure, to drive the car through Spain, France, Germany and Denmark, with a range of about 250 km! Not sure if it is at possible with today fast charging infrastructure.

    1. Hello Chris.

      The price already includes Spanish VAT of 21 %, but as Rafael mentioned it also includes a 3.500 € discount from the automaker. This discount is usually only given to buyers that finance their car with them.
