MG Motor offers electric for all as it expands its line-up with the arrival of the all New MG5 EV Sportwagon, an exciting addition to their recently launched MG ZS EV and the MG HS PHEV. The all New MG5 EV is a unique offering in the electric vehicle market, offering the flexibility and practicality of a generously spacious estate car with great driving dynamics and absolutely no exhaust emissions.
The all New MG5 is set to arrive on Irish shores this April. It is powered by a 115kW electric motor (equivalent to 156PS), giving acceleration of 0-100km/h in under eight seconds, with a 52.5kWh Lithium-Ion battery pack that can be charged from zero to 80% in just 50 minutes using a rapid charger. MG5 EV has a WLTP approved combined range of 345km in normal day-to-day use. This rises to 445km if the car is used solely for urban driving, as confirmed by the WLTP City driving cycle.
Prices start from just €27,645 with two trim levels available – Excite and Exclusive, both impressively equipped to round off the package for this size of electric car and eye catching price. MG5 EV’s lively motor sends power to the front wheels, which gives the car sound handling characteristics with an assured feel thanks to its low centre of gravity. The battery pack, meanwhile, is cleverly mounted beneath the floor of the car, maximising interior space for both passengers and luggage.
With a range of 345km on the WLTP cycle (rising to 445km for city use) MG5 EV has the ability to match the driving requirements of most individuals, while the ability to be charged from 0-80% charge in 50 minutes using a CCS connection makes it even more practical.
A full charge at home using Type 2 charging can be attained in around eight and a half hours. With the rear seats up and load cover in place there are 464 litres of boot space, or with the load cover retracted that extends to 578 litres with the rear seats still in place. Drop the 60:40 folding seat back and the load capacity increases to an astonishing 1,456 litres.
Gerard Rice, Managing Director of MG Motor Ireland, said: “Building on the recent successful launches of the ZS EV and HS PHEV, the MG5 EV completes the package to essentially offer electric for all drivers in Ireland. The MG5 EV will appeal to both families and business users alike, with plenty of flexibility for loading the passengers and cargo combined with an impressive electric driving range.”
Like all MG models, the all New MG5 EV comes with a 7 year/150,000km fully transferable warranty as standard. The all new MG5 also qualifies for MG Motor’s exclusive 211 offer meaning customers who order an MG ZS EV, MG HS PHEV or MG5 EV before March 31st can also avail of low 2.9%* APR PCP finance with zero deposit and a free charge cable.
