MG is a British automotive marque founded by Cecil Kimber in the 1920s, and M.G. Car Company Limited was the British sports car manufacturer that made the marque famous. Best known for its open two-seater sports cars, MG also produced saloons and coupés, with engines up to three litres in size. The marque is now owned by Chinese state-owned automaker SAIC Motor Corporation Limited.
MG’s first bespoke EV has plenty of technology and solid practicality. This affordable family hatchback is fun to drive, comfortable, and boasts impressive efficiency and speedy charging. It has much in common with the VW ID.3, which also has a rear-mounted 200bhp motor. Road noise is noticeable at higher speeds, but the ride is soft and it darts around corners, which is useful in town.
The MG4 has a choice of three models, said Top Gear. There is the Standard Range SE with 51kWh battery and a 217-mile range; then two Long Range options: SE and Trophy, both with 64kWh, doing 0-62mph in just under eight seconds. There’s also a 77kWh Extended Range in the works, offering a potential 329-miles. MG says that it can meet demand, and has predicted impressive residual values for the MG4.
A cross between a hatchback and an SUV, the MG4 is a distinctive car, with snazzy lights, said Sunday Times Driving. Inside, there are two screens as standard – a 10.25-inch floating touchscreen and a 7-inch driver’s display – plus a row of switches for vital functions. Most of the buttons are on the steering wheel, which is a bit fiddly. Material quality is so-so, but it feels solid and well-engineered, with plenty of legroom and headroom.

New MG4 EV full review – the cheapest 300 mile electric family car
New MG4 EV full review – the cheapest 300 mile electric family car. But is it any good? Jonny – like a lot of electric car enthusiasts – has been keen to see whether this new ground-up MG can credibly take the fight to the VW ID.3, Cupra Born and veterans like Renault’s Zoe and Nissan Leaf.
Thanks for stopping by The Late Brake Show. This is a near 300 mile EV that starts at £25,995 (minus any gov grants). Two battery sizes are available – 64kWh and 51kWh (the latter has a WLTP of 218 miles), with 7.9 and 7.7 0-62 times respectively. MG are throwing thew gauntlet down to Kia and Hyundai with a similar 7-year warranty, but they are styling the MG in a way which could make the historic brand desirable once again beyond the bargain hunters.

MG4 DRIVEN! Is this the game changing electric car we’ve all been waiting for? Electrifying
It’s here! The all-new MG4 has finally landed in the UK and we’ve just put it through its paces. With a game-changing price, is the MG4 the real deal?
To many casual observers, MG is one of the least likely names to be leading the electric car revolution. Famed for its leaky but quintessentially British two-seater sports cars, its reinvention as an electric car brand still comes as a surprise to new buyers. But here we are, almost two decades after the brand was sold off to Chinese owners, MG is outselling big names like ŠKODA and Land Rover, and has gone from being a rank outsider in the business to being one of the hottest properties.
The MG4 is a five-seat hatchback made in China, where it’s called the Mulan. Interestingly though the styling and some of the engineering is done in the UK.
It’s priced between £25,995 for the 51kWh standard range model with up to 217 miles of WLTP ability, up to the £31,495 Trophy with a bigger 64kWh battery. Our test car – an SE with the big battery – can manage 281 miles on a full charge. Join Nicki as she puts one of the first models in the UK to the test. Has MG set a new benchmark for affordable electric cars? Watch to find out.
