MG’s new all-electric hatchback will cost just $31,400 when it arrives in the UK

Last month, MG introduced the all-electric MG4 hatchback with a range of up to 281 miles (in the WLTP system). Now we know that with a starting price of £25,995 ($31,400) it will be one of the most affordable electric vehicles in the UK. It is due to arrive in the UK in September this year.

As a reminder, after the collapse of MG Rover in 2005, China’s SAIC Motors now owns the MG brand. The vehicles are made in China, but SAIC has a design studio in London. It also has joint venture partnerships with Volkswagen, GM and others to produce branded vehicles in China.

The MG4 first arrived in China as the Mulan and was built on SAIC’s MSP (Modular Scalable Platform) architecture, which will be used in future MG EVs. It will be available in three versions in the UK. The SE Standard Range launch model costs £25,995 with a 51kWh battery that delivers 218 miles of WLTP range, compared to £36,195 ($43,800) for the ID.3 with a 58kWh battery and 265 miles of range .

The £28,495 ($34,490) Long Range SE model uses a 64kWh battery to go 281 miles on a charge, which takes around 35 minutes to go from 10 to 80 per cent thanks to the 135kW charge capacity .

Finally, the EV Trophy costs £31,495 ($38,120) and offers 270 miles of range with the 64kWh battery. With the extra money, you get features like an upgraded version of the MG Pilot system (with lane departure warning, blind spot warnings, etc.), a leather interior, and more.

In terms of performance, the most powerful 201hp version with the 64kWh battery can go from 0 to 62 MPH in under eight seconds, with a top speed cap of 99 MPH. For all vehicles, MG promises ample storage space, an “Active Grille Shutter” that improves aerodynamics, a 10.25-inch infotainment screen, Car Play and Android Auto connectivity and more. However, price will likely be the main attraction, especially since the UK recently scrapped its EV rebate incentive.
