Seat has opened orders for the new electric version of its Mii city car.
The Mii Electric - now the only model in the Mii range, with the petrol version having been discontinued - is priced at £19,300, including the £3,500 government plug-in car grant.
It has an 83hp electric motor, paired with a 36.8kWh battery pack, meaning a driving range of up to 161 miles on a WLTP cycle.
The battery pack is capable of being recharged to 80% capacity in an hour using a 40kW DC charger, or in four hours using a 7.2kW AC home charger.
The Mii Electric's exterior features 16in alloy wheels, heated and electrically adjustable door mirrors, dark-tinted rear windows, LED daytime running lights, and heated front and rear windscreens.
The interior gets chrome door handle and dash insert detailing, heated front sports seats (the driver's seat also being height adjustable), leather on the steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake, a new IML dashboard with chrome-effect, and split folding rear seats.
Other standard equipment includes air conditioning, cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, rear parking sensors, Bluetooth and a 5in colour screen with DAB radio.
There's also smartphone integration with the Drive Mii app, including a universal smartphone cradle, TomTom sat-nav with handwriting recognition, an eco trainer, and USB and AUX-in ports.
Standard driver assistance systems include lane assist, traffic sign recognition and hill hold assist.
Drivers can also remotely control vehicle functions via the Seat Connect app, which allows them to review driving data, view the car's location, see the status of doors and lights, and control the air conditioning.
The first deliveries are expected in the first quarter of 2020.
