MG has revealed the first images of its all-new MG4 EV, ahead of the launch in September.
Initially available with battery capacities from 51kWh to 64kWh, the MG4 EV will be capable of between 218-281 miles range on the WLTP cycle.
The new model will use MG’s Modular Scalable Platform (MSP) – battery architecture that will underpin the next generation of the manufacturer’s models.
Designed for a wide range of vehicles, the MSP can be used flexibly in models across different vehicle segments, from hatchbacks to SUVs and sports cars – suitable for wheelbases ranging from 2,650 to 3,100mm.
The manufacturer has also revealed its new integrated battery structure has a height of 110mm, which it says will enhance roadholding and driver engagement.
A new rear-wheel drive platform allows 50:50 weight distribution.
The new MSP has been designed to maximise battery efficiency, with concerted efforts to further reduce weight and allow scalable range and performance for a wide variety of customer requirements, offering enhanced interior space and luggage capacity.
Its architecture also allows integration with future technologies including battery swap systems, as well as updates throughout their lifecycle.
Details on UK pricing, full specifications and official first UK viewings will be released shortly.
David Allison, head of Product & Planning at MG Motor UK, said, “The MG4 EV is a key part of the next phase of growth for MG.
“Our new MSP architecture will enable us to offer multiple options for the rapidly expanding UK electric car market, with all choices reinforcing our reputation for oustanding design, market-leading technology, and excellent value for money.”
