    We are delighted to announce that we will be attending the Lancashire Business Expo on 25 March, so we thought we would give the event organisers, Shout Network, the chance to experience the MINI Electric for themselves!

    Shout Expo Director, Jordan, was excited for his weekend with the MINI Electric and having never driven an electric car before he wasn’t sure what to expect. We always find that you can tell someone 100 times about how fast the MINI Electric is off the mark, and how it handles like it’s on rails, so we weren’t surprised when we received a message 10 minutes after he collected the car saying, “It sure is nippy, it surprised me even after what you said!”

    Jordan had a busy weekend ahead of him, with trips around Lancashire in preparation for the Expo. Following his activity on social media, we saw Jordan make a trip to Preston North End Football Club, Winckley Square and Preston Docklands to name a few.

    Here is what Jordan had to say about his experience with the MINI Electric:

    “Having a usual preference for larger cars, I was pleasantly surprised at how roomy and luxurious the MINI Electric felt. It had an intuitive dashboard with all the tech you’d expect from a leading automotive brand such as MINI. The MINI Electric was an impressive, smooth drive and very responsive on the road. This was my first experience of driving an electric car, so I wasn’t 100% sure what to expect. I was surprised at how simple the charging was and how the car handles. The whole experience has certainly made me an electric car convert!”

    Are you interested in test driving the MINI Electric, and seeing how it could work for your business? Book your test drive* today.

    Alternatively, you can nominate a business for the MINI Electric’s next adventure by filling out the form below.

      We’d like to keep in touch with you to share news on products, services and events which are relevant to you. We will not share your details with any third party organisation. If you’d like us to keep in touch with you, please tick the relevant boxes.

      The All-Weather Floor Mats are perfectly matched to your MINI and reliably protect the footwell against water, dirt and wear for both the front and rear. The special material is particularly flexible and fitted with a holding strap which makes removing the mat from the car easier. Available for all MINI models.

      BENEFITS:

      • The mats have been custom-sized to the floor trim. The flexible, special material is a perfect fit.
      • The non-slip, coloured surface of the floor mat has an extremely high-quality design and enhances the interior of the car.
      • The mats are surrounded by a raised mat edge, preventing the pooling of liquids in the footwell area.
      • The structured surface ensures the drainage of water in the heel area, so that it is very effective in even the wettest weather.

      Pricing starts from:

      • Front All Weather Floor Mats – From £52
      • Rear All Weather Floor Mats – From £38
      • All Weather Boot Liner – From £60

      Learner drivers in Clitheroe will be amongst the first in Lancashire to take driving lessons in a new electric MINI.

      Bob Devine of Clitheroe School of Motoring has become the first driving instructor to buy an electric MINI from Bowker in Blackburn. His new MINI electric will be available to students to drive later this month.

      After picking up his new MINI from the Bowker MINI centre on Trident Park in Blackburn, Bob Devine said: “I’ve driven MINIs from Bowker for more than 16 years now. When the MINI electric was launched last year I was immediately curious. Then I drove one – and wow! It was so smooth! I started to wonder how my learners would react if I bought one. I asked followers on my business page how they would feel about learning on an electric vehicle. And the response was extremely positive. 

      “I had no issues about switching over to electric. The automatic transmission is more popular than ever with learners. In fact, many tell me they may never need to drive a manual transmission vehicle. I have two children who, when old enough, will both learn in the automatic electric MINI. Now the driving industry as a whole is starting to adapt; ready for the future. 

      “The fuel costs alone are at least a third of my previous diesel/petrol car. That’s before you factor in road tax. The range is perfect for my business and lifestyle needs. And the environmental benefits are the icing on the cake.”

      The MINI Electric delivers 0-62mph in just 7.3 seconds. Bob will charge at home or at one of the increasing number of over 11,000 public charging points.

      For Bowker MINI, Adam O’Neill, said: “Bob has been a valued customer for many years. He is one of an increasing number of drivers taking an interest in our electric and hybrid models. We hope that Bob’s students will love driving his new electric MINI as much as he does.”

      The growth of the EV market is expected to accelerate in the coming years as the UK prepares itself for the 2030 ban on new petrol and diesel vehicle sales. By the end of 2022, it’s projected that electric cars will outsell diesel and mild hybrid diesel.

      A full service for a MINI might be scheduled every 12 months if you use your vehicle a lot and record relatively high mileage, or around every 10-12,000 miles. Compared to an interim service, a full service covers more vehicle checks, such as air filter maintenance, door locks and spark plugs.

      When your MINI requires a service a service icon will appear on your dashboard. If you have added your MINI to the app you will be sent a notification, you will also be able to book a service via the MINI App.

      You are always welcome to bring your vehicle in so that our service department may perform an actual key read on your vehicle to let you know if it is due for service.

      Book a Service

      The cost of a service can vary depending on the age and mileage of the vehicle. Bowker MINI offer a bespoke discount* on vehicles over three years old. Learn more about our Bespoke Discount click here.

        UNLOCK THE MINI ELECTRIC. 11 – 2pm, Sunday 20 February.

        MINI Electric looks like a MINI, but does it handle like one? Does it get you where you’d like to go in style and comfort? Is it easy to charge?

        When it comes to something new, we all have questions. But why not ask someone who knows best?

        At our MINI Electric event running between 11-2pm on Sunday 20 February, you’ll be able to meet Phil and Sue, at our Preston MINI Centre, and Ian, at our Blackburn MINI Centre. They’re genuine MINI Electric drivers, so if anyone has all the juicy gossip, it’s them.

        They’ve been zapping about in their MINI Electric, and now having been Electric owners for a while, we think they’re the best people to be on hand to answer any of your questions, chat all things charging and share their electric experience with you.

        We’ll also give you the chance to be in the driver’s seat* so you can feel the thrill of its instant torque for yourself.

        And of course – it’s not an event unless there are refreshments, right? We’ll be serving up special MINI Electric cupcakes alongside tea and coffee from our refreshment bar.

        To reserve your place at the event, simply complete the form below.

            Built to journey big, the MINI Countryman offers cutting-edge tech and stacks of room. No other MINI is better equipped for adventure. And with our Plug-in Hybrid model, explore more with fewer emissions.

            Don’t just take our work for it, Bowker MINI were proud to partner with Five Little Doves for a Big Family Day Out in the MINI Countryman. The local Lancashire family took to the road on their big adventure and visited some local hotspots – including a day trip with their four-legged friend, Oscar, to Yarrow Valley and an action-packed weekend at Ribby Hall Village. Here is what Laura and her family had to say:

            “Last weekend we set off on our Mini Big Days Out to Ribby Hall and what a weekend it was! We are so lucky here in Lancashire to have some gorgeous places to visit and even luckier to explore them in the new Mini Countryman for the weekend! With 8.8 inch screen navigation, LED rear lights in a new Union Jack design, fully digital display cockpit and go-kart handling it really does have everything you could ever need from a family car. And, having never driven a Mini before, I was well and truly converted!! 😍

            Our weekend was packed with festive fun – the big light switch on at Ribby Hall, visiting Father Christmas, a Beauty & The Beast panto plus a wander round the Wild Discovery zoo. It was such a lovely way to spend some time together as a family and somewhere we will definitely go back to! ❤️

            Handing back the Mini Countryman at the end of the weekend was hard (my own car feels so boring in comparison!) but fingers crossed it won’t be the last Mini Countryman we drive – I’m ready for our next Mini Big Days Out adventure!! 🙌”

            Are you ready for a big adventure? 

            To show you just how spacious and supremely fun a MINI Countryman is to drive, we’ve been exploring to find the best views, adventure, and fun for you to enjoy on a Big Day Out of your own. We’ve scouted out some locations we think you’ll love to visit:

            A Lancashire rescue dog is leading a North West car retailer’s national crusade to produce and share the best video in the country on social media.

            George, abandoned by previous owners 9 years ago, has made his acting debut in a video that celebrates the feeling motorists get when they collect a new car. The video is representing Bowker MINI in Blackburn and Preston in a national competition.

            The video also features George’s owner and fellow acting debutante Jess O’Neill. Jess is a marketing executive at Bowker Motor Group. Together they demonstrate a motorist’s experiences from the moment she wakes up through to picking up her new MINI Electric and driving it for the very first time. The MINI Electric was launched in March 2020 and it is the first fully-electric MINI.

            Bowker Motor Group marketing executive Jess O’Neill said: “George and I loved the challenge of acting in the video. George is very special to us. He is so cheeky and I think that glint in his eye comes through in the video footage. He’s not really used to the limelight. But he took his first acting and filming experience in his stride.”

            The video is the automotive retailer’s entry in a national competition for MINI retailers to develop influencer content then shared on each retailer’s social channels. The video will be judged for creativity and innovation alongside others from throughout the UK.

            Bowker Motor Group marketers teamed up with local creatives Sam Mellor from Mellor Media and photographer Scott Clarkson who filmed the video together. It was shot over a day and a half in locations throughout Lancashire including Pleasington, Preston City Centre and Wrea Green.

            Four finalists will represent the UK and Republic of Ireland in the global competition.

            Earlier this year, Bowker MINI centres beat off competition from more than 130 other UK centres to win the Marketing Champion category at the MINI UK Retail Awards. Bowker MINI was the only retailer group located outside of the South to be shortlisted in the marketing category.

            The first place finish saw Bowker MINI go one better than two years ago when they finished runner up in the same category. 

            Bowker MINI are proud to announce that we have partnered up with the wonderful people at Brindle Distillery.

            Based at Holmes Farm in Brindle, the award-winning distillery, known for the name ‘Cuckoo GIN’ are dedicated to the future and strive to be sustainable. They take pride in using locally sourced raw materials, with a natural spring delivering fresh spring water to the distillery which is then used in the distillation of their spirits and for cooling their still, nicknamed ‘Maggie’.

            With our expanding MINI Electric and Hybrid range, Bowker MINI wanted to contribute to the sustainability of their business. Currently, the distillery ensures the use of sustainable and ethically sourced botanicals from the UK and across the world that give their spirits their award-winning taste.

            Mark Long, Director and Master Distiller had this to say after their MINI Electric Experience, “Teaming up with a local company like Bowker MINI was a great privilege, to do it because of our shared sustainable principles was the icing on the cake. At Brindle Distillery (Cuckoo Gin) we live by our tag line, ‘Inspired by the past, dedicated to the future’. The past harking back to times and farming stories created our brand name Cuckoo Gin. We are dedicated to the future by using the land on the farm to create a product that in turn builds the local economy, creates jobs and tourism for the area. We strive to be sustainable and green in all aspects of our product production, from using biomass to heat our still, using our own water in production and spreading waste back on our land. Part of our long-term goal would include using electric transport to ship our products and meet customers out on the road. Bowker have introduced us to this technology, and we are massively impressed with the performance of the MINI Electric and the range from just one charge. We hope this is the start of a great partnership together.”

            More About the MINI Electric

            The MINI Electric, offering a range of up to 145 miles* from a full charge is a practical option for any business striving towards sustainability. Financially, the Electric strikes a chord too, costing approximately just 4p a mile and as of April 2021 just 1% BIK for Business users. Charging could not be easier either, with a wallbox the MINI Electric will be ready to go in just three hours, so whilst you are charging your batteries, so is your MINI. And with the charging network continually growing, with the help of a 50kw charging unit, now found at many motorway services, the MINI Electric can go from 0-80% charge in just 35 minutes. So, a quick snack and a coffee and you are ready to go, and with the Electric going from 0 to 62 in just 7.3 seconds you’ll be there before you know it.

            Do you know or have a company that could benefit from a MINI Electric Experience? Why not ‘Nominate a Business’ and find out?

            MINI Charging is your gateway to one of the worlds largest charging Networks. You will have access to a range of providers, using just one RFID card or via a mobile app.

            Introducing the public charging network of “MINI Charging”

            MINI Charging is the new superregional public charging service available from MINI.

            MINI Charging provides customers with easy access to one of the world´s largest public charging networks.

            With the MINI Charging card, or mobile app, you can charge at a large number of charging points from different operators across the UK (>11,000), as well as in all other MINI Charging markets within Europe (>173,000).

            Currently in the UK charging points from key operators such as bppulse  and others, as well as high-power charging stations available via IONITY are connected to the MINI charging network.

            This gives MINI customers access to >9,500 AC and >1,500 DC charging points across the UK. Not to mention a further >162,000 AC and >11,000 DC across Europe.

            Upon account creation you are presented with a single basic tariff, named Flex tariff.

            The Flex tariff provides access to all included network operators without any monthly membership/subscription fees. This base tariff is most suitable for occasional users as the customer only pays for the charging sessions they complete. The price for the charging session is determined by the individual charging point operator and therefore varies dependent on the charging point/network used. The current pricing for each charging point is shown directly in the MINI Charging app or website and it is recommended that the customer always check the prices in operation prior to commencing the charging session. Typical prices range from £0.18-£0.42 per kWh for AC/DC charge points.

            For more frequent public charging users, you can choose to add optional packages. Whereby for a monthly subscription fee, each package provides more attractive/preferential pricing for charging sessions conducted on those networks.


            bppulse package

            The bppulse package is suitable for frequent users of the bppulse network.

            For a monthly subscription fee of £7.85 you can access preferential pricing per/kWh when charging at the included bppulse charging points. There are currently >5,000 MINI compatible bppulse charging points available in the UK

            NEW VEHICLE OFFER

            New vehicle customers who have purchased a new fully electric or plug-in hybrid MINI vehicle through Bowker MINI and whose vehicle handover took/takes place on or after 01 April 2021 are eligible to receive the “bppulse” package for 12 months without subscription fee if they have registered for the Flex tariff.**

            **The offer is valid once for a specific vehicle from 1stApril 2021 and cannot be transferred to other vehicles or owners. After the subscription fee exemption expires, the regular Flex Tariff conditions will be applied. This promotional offer applies to the package subscription fee only, usage costs remain the responsibility of the customer. This promotional offer does not apply to used vehicles.

            The MINI Navigation system shows all charging points within the MINI Charging network.

            The MINI Charging App is available for both Apple iOS and Android.

            The My MINI App.

            To start and end a charging session at a MINI Charging partner charging point, either the RFID card or mobile app may be used, depending on the capability of the charge point.

            Yes of course. Simply use the steadily expanding public network of MINI Charging or other charging stations as available, such as from your employer. The MINI App* or the navigation system in your vehicle shows you public charge points in the vicinity.

            Attractive public charging tariffs and personalised offers are also available exclusively to MINI customers.

            The time taken to charge electric cars (depending on the cable or charging station) takes longer with alternating current (AC), while direct current (DC) is significantly faster. The new MINI Electric, for example, is charged from 0-80% after approx. 35 minutes when charged with 50 kW at a Rapid charging (DC) station. These are commonly found at motorway service stations. Alternatively, using a BP Pulse wallbox, the charging time is between 3 – 5 hours.
