SEAT Mulling Electric Mii…A VW E-Up! Clone
5 Y BY MARK KANE
Last month, news outlet TV3 Catalunya showed some interesting material about a Seat e-Mii electric vehicle based on, or rather cloned from, the Volkswagen E-Up!
The official premier of the Volkswagen E-Up! should be at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, however it is possible that the German group will also electrify the Škoda Citigo and Seat Mii.
The e-Up! has a range of about 94 miles on the NEDC cycle, which should equate to 70 or so in real life. Its 60-kW motor takes it to the 84 mph top speed and zips if from 0-62 mph in 14 second. Battery capacity is rated at 18.7 kWh.
The electric Up! will likely be the first car in Europe that comes with Combo 2 DC charging inlet, but it will be just an option without a serious network of such charging points for now.
