MG, the British brand owned by Chinese automaker SAIC, has been making waves in the European market with its affordable and practical electric vehicles. The MG4, a compact hatchback that debuted in 2022, is one of its most successful models, offering a range of up to 323 miles on a single charge and a starting price of just $35,000.
Now, MG is expanding the MG4 lineup with two new variants: the MG4 XPower and the MG4 Extended Range. Both models aim to enhance the appeal of the MG4 by adding more performance, features, and battery capacity. Let’s take a closer look at what these new models have to offer.
MG4 XPower: A Sporty Electric Hatchback
The MG4 XPower is the most powerful and dynamic version of the MG4. It features a dual-motor all-wheel-drive system that delivers a combined output of 268 horsepower and 360 pound-feet of torque. This allows the MG4 XPower to sprint from 0 to 62 mph in just 6.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 112 mph.
The MG4 XPower also comes with a sport-tuned suspension, larger brakes, and 18-inch alloy wheels wrapped in low-profile tires. The exterior design is enhanced by a more aggressive front bumper, a rear diffuser, and a roof spoiler. The interior features sport seats, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, and aluminum pedals.
The MG4 XPower uses a 64 kWh battery pack that provides a range of up to 270 miles on the WLTP cycle. It supports fast charging up to 100 kW, which can replenish 80% of the battery in about 40 minutes. The MG4 XPower also comes with a wireless charging pad, satellite navigation, heated front seats and steering wheel, and a mobile phone Bluetooth key.
The MG4 XPower is priced at $43,000 and will be available in Europe from the fourth quarter of 2023.
