A rear-wheel-drive electric motor powers the MG4. It has a top speed of 160 km/h and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.3 seconds. The MG4 also has a 50:50 weight distribution, which gives it good handling.

Here are some additional factors to consider when deciding if the MG4 is right for you:

  • Your driving needs: If you have a long commute or frequently travel long distances, you may want to consider an EV with a longer range.
  • Your budget: The MG4 is one of the most affordable EVs on the market, but it’s still a significant investment. Make sure you factor in the cost of charging and maintenance when making your decision.
  • The availability of charging stations: If you live in an area with a lot of charging stations, the MG4 will be a great choice. However, if charging stations are limited, you may want to consider an EV with a longer range.
  • Your lifestyle: If you have a family or frequently carry cargo, you may want to consider an EV with a larger interior. The MG4 has a spacious interior but is not as large as other EVs.

Driving towards a greener future

The launch of the MG4 in Australia marks a significant stride toward a greener and more sustainable future. As the world grapples with the consequences of climate change, the transportation sector has been under scrutiny for its contribution to carbon emissions. The MG4’s emergence as an affordable, sporty EV not only addresses environmental concerns but also showcases the potential for a cleaner, more enjoyable driving experience.
