The Electric Vehicle Experience Centre (EVEC) is part of Milton Keynes Council’s Go Ultra Low City scheme, funded by government. The EVEC supports the town’s aim to grow and promote the take up of electric vehicles.

This is the third year the Electric Vehicle Experience Centre has been in operation and we are thrilled to welcome MINI as our new OEM partner. The MINI Countryman Plug-In Hybrid is already on the market, and the new all-electric MINI will be released in Spring 2020.

As part of this new partnership, two brand-new MINI Countryman Plug-In Hybrids will be joining our fleet of EV experience vehicles and will be available for test drives from 19th September. The model has an electric range of up to 26 miles, a top speed of 123mph and delivers 0 to 60mph in 6.8 seconds.

“I am really excited for what our new MINI partnership will do for the EVEC and for the future adoption of electric vehicles”. Ted Foster (Electric Vehicle Centre Manager)

David George, Director, MINI UK said “MINI fully supports what the Electric Vehicle Experience Centre stands for, to inform and transform public opinion about electrified vehicles. The MINI Countryman Plug-In Hybrid offers complete flexibility, whether it’s for the daily commute or a big weekend adventure, so it’s a perfect addition to the EVEC fleet.”

As we introduce our new partner, visitors to the centre will have the chance to explore the MINI Countryman Plug-In Hybrid inside the EV Experience Centre where it will be on display temporarily, as well as during free short-term test drives.
