MG4 Electric (2022): Chinese ID.3 competitor stands out mainly with low price

The MG4 Electric will be on the market at the end of 2022. MG has revealed almost all the details about its electric SUV, including a price of 28,990 euros. But there is a catch there.

A compact electric SUV like the MG4 Electric for a price of 28,990 euros. That sounds too good to be true, especially when you consider that competitor Renault Megane E-Tech Electric has a price of 37,590 euros and the Volkswagen ID.3 even costs 43,990 euros! And it is, because this is the French prize, it is written in small print below the press release. MG has not yet released the price in the Netherlands. Although we expect that it will not be more expensive than the Renault.

What do we really know for sure about the MG4 Electric?

MG4 Electric range

The MG4 Electric will come to the Netherlands in five variants, but not all of them will come in 2022. First come these three versions:

  • Standard: 170 hp, 250 Nm, battery pack 51 kWh, range 350 km, 0-100 km/h in 7.7 s, 160 km/h
  • Comfort: 204 hp, 250 Nm, battery pack 64 kWh, range 450 km, 0-100 km/h in 7.9 s, 160 km/h
  • Luxury: 204 hp, 250 Nm, battery pack 64 kWh, range 435 kilometers, 0-100 km/h in 7.9 s, 160 km/h

In 2023, the range will be completed with a version with 77 kWh (range: more than 500 km) and a very sporty MG4 Electric (0-100 km/h in less than 4 seconds), with all-wheel drive and both on the front and rear. rear axle an electric motor.

Charging battery: how fast?

The MG4 Electric Standard can charge with 117 kW and the battery pack is charged from 10 to 80 percent in 40 minutes. It is faster with the Comfort and Luxury, the 135 kW fast charger ensures that they are ready to charge the 64 kWh package five minutes earlier. But 35 minutes is also not a value that will knock you back.

What sets the MG4 Electric apart then?

Very honest? Not with anything. Range, power and charging speed are neat, but no better than the competition. MG claims the battery pack is the lightest in the entire car market, but with a total weight of 1655 kilos, the MG4 Electric is 19 kilos heavier than the Renault Megane E-Tech Electric…

Still, we expect some fireworks when the final prices are announced. They can get very competitive at times. In addition, each MG4 Electric leaves the factory richly equipped, with at least 17-inch light metal, LED lighting all around and adaptive cruise control with traffic jam assistant.

MG 100 years: electric roadster

MG can still report that the brand will be 100 years old next year. False history of course, because the current MG flies the Chinese flag and the old MG was more British than a red letterbox. Still, the Chinese want to remember the centenary and they do so with an electric roadster, the Cyberster. MG wants to have ten electric models in its range by 2025.
