“So what’s the electric only range on the PHEV?”

“There’s no electric mini yet. We only have the Countryman which is a hybrid; like the big one over there in the corner”

“Cool, but what’s the electric only range on it?” “We only have the Countryman with an electric motor right now”

“But do you know what its electric only range is?”

“There’s no all electric mini yet – it’s out next year”

“Ok, thanks for your help”

Real conversation with a Mini dealer last Saturday. The thing is electric range on a 50g/km or less PHEV is very important to company car drivers from April 2020 – see below. And the range on the Countryman? It’s 25 miles.
