MG Motor UK has revealed its new MG4 EV Extended Range model, a long-distance electric vehicle that delivers up to 323 miles of zero emissions motoring.

Equipped with a new 77kWh battery, the Extended Range is MG’s first electric car capable of more than 300 miles on a single charge. It also allows drivers to recharge from 10 to 80 per cent in 39 minutes.

As well as delivering more miles, the Extended Range’s more powerful 180kw electric motor offers better performance, with the 0-62mph time now 6.5 seconds.

Underpinned by the established rear-wheel drive layout and Modular Scalable Platform (MSP), the Extended Range is available in the Trophy specification as standard, including spacious packaging, infotainment and driver-assistance technology.

The latest MG4 EV also features larger 18″ alloy wheels and a black two-tone roof.

Last month, the manufacturer launched its MG4 Xpower, which features a dual motor powertrain delivering 435PS and up to 600Nm of torque, and capable of 0-62mph in 3.8 seconds.

The model also delivers up to 320kW and 435PS to all four wheels, via front (150kW) and rear (170kW) electric motors.

Exterior enhancements include orange ‘Xpower’ brake calipers, a two-tone black roof, new 18’’ alloy wheels and polished trim accents, alongside a new racing green colour option.

Guy Pigounakis MG’s Commercial Director said: “The Extended Range is the fifth model in the award winning MG4 EV model family, and we believe drivers have real breadth of choice with our electric hatchbacks which now include the very capable SE cars all the way through to the XPOWER, the most powerful production MG ever built.”
