The 2023 MG 4 hatchback, expected to be one of Australia's cheapest electric vehicles when it debuts between July and September 2023, has received preliminary information from MG.
With a choice of two battery capacities, 51kWh and 64kWh, with 350km and 450km of claimed driving range, respectively, in European WLTP testing, three variations are anticipated to be available in Australia.
The base model MG 4 has a 125kW electric motor on the rear axle, which is increased to a 150kW motor in the long-range model. This motor is supported by a new, independent electric vehicle platform. Both variations can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in seven to eight seconds.
There will likely be two models with the 51kWh battery and one with the 64kWh pack, according to information provided by MG Australia.
In China, a dual-motor, all-wheel-drive MG 4 with more than 300kW is readily available. According to MG Australia, it is being thought about.
The bright blue and orange hero colors seen in overseas images will be available in seven different colors.
It remains to be seen whether the new MG 4 will be available with nationwide drive-away pricing, as with the petrol and hybrid MG models, or if on-road prices will vary by state and territory, as with the ZS EV.
The new MG 4 electric car, scheduled for release at the end of 2023, will come in three model grades and two battery capacities. Nevertheless, pricing won't be announced until the near launch. The MG 4 is anticipated to come in three model grades and be on sale in the third quarter of 2023.
Price has yet to be determined, but a base model of the new MG costs the equivalent of $40,000 drive-away in the UK, while a flagship, long-range variant costs $50,000 drive-away.
