A few weeks after its launch, the MG 4 (MG MG4) opens its order book. Available for less than 30,000 Euros.
In mid-June, MG lifted the curtain on China with an unprecedented deal called Mulan. A few days later, a few months after the MG 5 station wagon, it became official with us under the name MG 4 (MG MG4). That’s why it’s a series that continues to expand for the Asian firm that came to French territory in 2019. .
Now after its official presentation, the new electric compact is finally opening its booking book. And the least we can say is that it’s pretty affordable!
Cheaper than Mégane E-Tech
If you need some patience before you know the different finishes, MG announces in a press release that the compact model is available in the entry-level version for less than 30,000 euros. More than an attractive price, not taking into account the ecological bonus of 6,000 euros in effect until the end of the year, before increasing to 5,000 euros next year. For comparison, the MG 4 will then cost at least €5,000 less than the Renault Mégane E-Tech and will be showcased at €35,200 in a 130 horsepower version and with a 40 kWh battery.
The Chinese compact model starts with a 51 kWh battery and allows it to travel 350 kilometers per WLTP cycle., while the power, according to the manufacturer, is displayed at 170 horsepower. A 2ᵉ version will also be offered with a 65 kWh battery offering a range of 450 km for 204 horsepower. It then rivals the 220 version of the Mégane E-Tech with its 60 kWh battery.
Later, other versions with all-wheel drive will also come to light.. The most efficient model for now accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 8 seconds for a top speed limited to 160 km/h.
a new platform
This MG MG4 is the first model in the series based on the new MSP platform. Developed by SAIC (Modular Scalable Platform). This can then be fitted to models with 2,650 and 3,100mm wheelbases and potentially contain batteries from 40 to 150 kWh. If MG does not provide information on the charging power of its electric compact, we know that this technical base is equipped with a 400-volt system that can be updated to 800 volts.
This will have little effect on power without revolutionizing power. Note that the MSP is compatible with battery replacement, as Nio already offers in China and Norway. The brand does not specify whether the MG will be equipped with this function, but we know thatIt will be equipped with semi-autonomous driving via the MG Pilot system. Compact will also be compatible with remote OTA updates.
While reservations for the new MG 4 are therefore already open on the brand’s website, first deliveries will start this fall. The first 500 customers will be able to take advantage of an advantageous offer, including a 268 euro ev charging cable and a 300 euro MG universal charging card.
