Built on the Nebula MSP (Modular Scalable Platform) for battery-powered vehicles, and fitted with Rubik’s Cube batteries, the MG4 is billed as the cheapest EV in MG’s lineup. It is seen as an affordable alternative to the likes of Volkswagen ID.3 and the Nissan Leaf EV in European markets. The MG4 is appreciated for its striking looks, decent equipment on offer and an impressive drive range.
The MG4 EV comes equipped with two battery options; a 51 kWh for 350 km battery range and a 64 kWh battery for a 450 km driving range. A flagship AWD model is expected to be launched in later stages that will come fitted with a high-power permanent magnet synchronous motor, capable of punching out 330 kW of power and a massive 600 Nm of torque. This version will be able to sprint from 0-100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds and have an electronically-capped top speed of 159 km/h.
After its European debut, the MG4 EV will also hit dealerships across New Zealand, Australia, Mexico, South America, and the Middle East towards Q1, 2023 and will be introduced in various other markets thereafter. MG already sells the ZS EV here which is priced at PKR 62.5 lac, whether the company will introduce the MG4 EV in Pakistan, we will have to wait to find out. Else it may be taken as just another tweet by Javed Afridi.
