After making his return to Europe official, MG continues to advance its offensive for electrified mobility at an affordable price. And it is that the future of the brand in the European market comes loaded with news, since between the end of 2021 and the beginning of 2022, the company will welcome three new models: the MG Marvel R Electric, the revamped MG ZS EV and the MG5.
MG Marvel R Electric
The MG Marvel R Electric is already the brand’s new flagship. It’s about a 100% electric SUV that draws attention for its avant-garde design, its excellent finishes and materials and its complete equipment with the most advanced technology of the moment. In addition, the Marvel R Electric perfectly combines the efficiency of electric driving with high-performance features, offering great driving dynamism.
MG’s new SUV is available in AWD and RWD configuration. The four-wheel drive version is equipped with a Tri-Motor propulsion system that, as the name suggests, uses three engines. This gives you a combined maximum power of 212 kW (288 CV) and an autonomy of 370 kilometers in WLTP cycle. For its part, the rear-wheel drive version is equipped with two electric motors, located on the rear axle, to obtain a maximum power of 132 kW (180 CV) and an autonomy of 402 kilometers in WLTP cycle.
The Marvel R Electric will feature three finishes (Comfort, Luxury and Performance) and will be available in European dealers this same month of November. As for its prices, the Comfort finish will be available from 39,990 euros, the Luxury finish from 43,990 euros and the Performance finish from 47,990 euros.
MG ZS EV
The MG ZS EV, one of the best-selling electric models in Europe with more than 15,000 registered units, it is updated in three aspects: design, autonomy and technology. Regarding the aesthetic changes, the exterior incorporates a new and attractive design language that includes a renewed and modern front grill. Inside, the technological equipment takes a giant leap thanks to the new MG iSMART connectivity system, premiered at the Marvel R Electric.
The renewed MG ZS EV incorporates two new types of batteries that improve performance and practicality: a small battery of 51 kWh with autonomy of 320 kilometers (WLTP) and other long-lasting battery with 70 kWh that increases the autonomy of the vehicle up to 440 kilometers (WLTP). In addition, it has an internal charging system with an 11 kW three-phase socket and is capable of reaching 80% of its capacity in just 30 minutes. The MG ZS EV will be available at the end of October in the Spanish market.
The MG5 is the first fully electric station wagon market and will arrive in Europe in the first quarter of 2022 at a starting price below the 30.000 euros. This MG family vehicle is perfect for families looking for a 100% electric vehicle that is functional, spacious, with extensive equipment and an affordable price.
The new MG5 stands out for its modern design, its cutting-edge technology and its trunk of almost 1,400 liters. In addition, it will be available with two types of battery: a long-lasting 61,6 kWh with 400 kilometers autonomy (WLTP) and a smaller and more affordable 51 kWh and 320 kilometers autonomy (WLTP).
Like the MG Marvel R Electric and the renewed MG ZS EV, the new MG5 will equip the iSMART connectivity system, which allows controlling a large part of the vehicle’s functionalities through the MG app.
