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.
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

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.
