Why did car dealers vote the MG4 to be Electric Vehicle of the Year?

The MG4 is one of the cheapest new electric cars currently on sale, yet its range, performance and technology compares favourably with much more expensive rivals, and this has impressed UK car dealers so much they voted for it to win the AM Award for Electric Vehicle of the Year.

Based on an all-new platform, the MG4 is the first of a new family of electric cars from MG. The rearwheel drive hatch provides keen handling, without sacrificing passenger comfort.

Initially available with battery capacities of 51kWh or 64kWh, the MG4 EV Standard Range is capable of 218 miles on the WLTP cycle – with Long Range SE and Trophy Models capable of 281 miles and 270 miles respectively.

The 64kWh battery is also capable of charging up to 135kW, meaning a charge time of only 35 minutes from 10%-80% using a 150kW DC rapid charger.

The Standard Range car develops 170PS and the Long Range model serves up 204PS. Both can sprint from rest to 62mph in less than eight seconds.

Specification levels are high, with a 10.25-inch central touchscreen and separate digital instrument cluster display fitted as standard, along with MG Pilot driver assistant systems and a suite of connected services.

The car also comes with a seven-year/80,000-mile warranty as standard, which remains one of the longest fully-transferable warranties in its class.

The MG4 is the second highest-selling new electric car so far this year. More than 5,200 examples of the award-winning model have been delivered so far, helping to position MG as one of the UK’s fastest growing electric car brands.
