Can MG Motors Improve On Their Existing EV Range?

Thu 18th Aug 2022

MG Motors has announced details of the company’s next offering in the EV market, the all-new MG4 EV.

Promising a spacious, technologically advanced, affordable, and driving-quality all-electric hatchback, the brand is launching three editions—the MG4 EV SE Standard Range, the SE Long Range, and the Trophy Long Range—all of which are all-electric hatchbacks. Customers in the UK can look forward to affordable, zero-emission motoring without sacrificing anything.

Starting with the SE Standard Range priced at £25,995, the SE Standard Range. The SE Long Range starts at £28,495, and the Trophy Long Range begins at £31,495.

The MG4 EV will feature a fresh, modern design language as well as excellent cabin and boot space thanks to its extended 2,705mm wheelbase. Using class-leading thin battery technology, rear boot capacity will also be enhanced. It will be 110mm in height.

The MG4 EV is the first vehicle to utilise the innovative MSP in order to pave the way for future MGs that will include a variety of all-electric vehicles.

The equally balanced 50:50 weight distribution, rear-wheel drive, and a low centre of gravity due to the battery's design and placement will give drivers excellent roadholding and engagement on the advanced platform.

The MG4 EV Standard Range will be able to travel up to 218 miles using a 51kWh to 64kWh battery on the WLTP cycle. Long Range SE and Trophy models will be able to travel up to 281 miles and 270 miles, respectively. The 64kWh battery will also be able to charge up to 135kW, allowing you to charge from 10% to 80% in just 35 minutes using a 150kW DC rapid charger.

All MG4 EVs will come with seven-year warranties and excellent amounts of space and equipment as standard. The simple, elegant interior will include hi-tech features such as a 10.25’’ floating infotainment screen and a 7’’ driver screen with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity.

“Our first all-electric hatchback will offer unrivalled interior space and practicality, with a level of equipment usually expected from premium and performance EV manufacturers,” said Guy Pigounakis, Commercial Director at MG Motor UK. “We believe our new MG4 EV will be an enticing proposition for customers seeking an affordable electric car without compromise. The potential of the innovative Modular Scalable Platform is considerable and is set to deliver some exciting new MGs over the coming years.”
