MG MARVEL R is the latest all-electric crossover by MG and it will be available at the starting price of 220,000 Yuan. MG Marvel R benefits from newer and more modern design compared to the automaker’s previous EV crossover MG Marvel X.
As MG said, the Marvel R can travel up to 500 km with a single charge. There will be a long-range model with a 93kWh battery that can travel up to 700 km.
MG claimed that the Marvel R can hit 100 kph in just 4.8 seconds. At first, we expected the same powertrain as the Marvel X that uses pair of electric motors with 297 hp but then SAIC motor approved that the Marvel R will use triple electric motors with 297 hp and 665 nm of torque.
Design-wise, the Marvel R looks way better than the Marvel X with its sleek LED headlights and dynamic front bumper. The bumper looks very sporty with a red line on its lower section where it hosts fog lights and tiny air intakes.
From the side, MG Marvel R looks more regular and we can mention the strong shoulder line, plastic wheel arches, red brake calipers, and hidden door handles.
Moving to the rear and there are two LED active taillights that are connected to each other with a lightbar. The number plate sits on the rear bumper so the tailgate looks a little simple than other sections.
Inside the cabin, there is a 19.4-inch touch screen on the center console. MG omitted almost all physical buttons except the circular gear knob. The steering wheel is a multi-function steering wheel with two spokes.
Other highlights inside the cabin are 5G beyond visual range perception, super traffic jam assistance, and voice control of cruise distance/speed.
