MG5 EV long-range model has 250 mile range

The all-electric MG5 EV Estate is now available with a 250-mile range, or 334 miles in City driving.

Prices for the longer range MG5 EV start from just £26,495 after the Plug-In Car Grant (currently £2,500) and business users benefit from 1% Benefit-in-Kind tax (2021/22 tax year).

The longer range MG5 EV has a 61.1kWh battery and can take an 80% charge in just 61 minutes on a 50kW rapid charger or 40 minutes on a 100kW rapid charger. A 100% overnight fast charge takes approximately 9.5 hours on a domestic home charger supply.

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 1,456 litres.

The standard MG5 EV Estate has an electric range of 214 miles. The MG ZS EV and the MG HS Plug-in Hybrid already account for a third of MG’s total sales. The brand is now the fourth most popular EV brand in the UK and its EV model split is over four times the average in today’s car market.

Like all MG models, the new MG5 EV Long Range comes with a 7 year/80,000-mile fully transferable warranty as standard. It is powered by a 115kW electric motor (equivalent to 156PS), giving acceleration of 0-60mph in 7.3 seconds, and developing 260Nm of torque.

This rises to 334 miles if the car is used solely for urban driving, as confirmed by the WLTP City driving cycle.

Also new on the long range model is the addition of MG’s MG Pilot Driver Assistance System.

The long range MG5 EV line-up comprises two versions, with prices starting at just £26,495 for the Excite (after the Plug-in Car Grant). The long range MG5 EV Exclusive is available from just £28,995 (after the Plug-in Car Grant).

Over 100,000 MG5 EVs have been sold in global markets since 2018.
