The all-electric MG5 EV Estate has been updated, with revised front and rear styling, including the disappearance of the grille that features on the current model, which was always a strange feature for a pure EV. The MG5 EV also has new alloy wheel designs.
The interior and infotainment system has also been updated, with a 10.25-inch touchscreen, and it is now capable of supporting iSMART connected car functionality through MG’s dedicated smartphone app.
The new MG5 EV will also come equipped with Vehicle-To-Load (V2L) capability, meaning users can power other electric devices using the energy stored in the battery, such as e-bikes, portable heaters or camping equipment. This technology is already a feature on the latest MG ZS EV.
The MG5 EV remains the only pure electric estate car in its sector. It will be on display at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Green Car Guide sees the MG5 EV as an excellent electric estate car that represents good value for money, with the refreshments to the front and rear styling and the infotainment system being the most needed updates.
