According to a Mia Electric press release, the electric microbuses will start at £16,995 + VAT in the UK include “two Lithium Ion Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries, generating 12 kW, a stable chemistry giving a range of up to 74 miles and recharging fully in 5 hours.” 10 minutes of charging provided 5 miles of range, according to the company.

The Mia Electric Microbus is manufactured in France and the vehicle is available for purchase across Europe.

The news release adds:

Mia-Electric’s launch to the UK fleet market will coincide with revisions to the London Congestion Charge in July, which will see only vehicles emitting 75 g/km CO2 exempt from the charge – something only attainable currently by plug-in hybrid and fully electric vehicles.

Mia-Electric vehicles will be offered with a ‘Peace of Mind’ programme, comprising a five year/ 70,000-mile warranty for vehicle, battery, electric drivetrain and anti-corrosion and roadside assistance.
