If you require a practical family car that offers a long range, the MG5 EV is certainly worth considering, especially since it comes generously equipped as standard. Another thing in the MG5 EV’s favour is that it's more affordable than many of its rivals, which means that switching to electric is easier than you might think. Furthermore, the car comes with a seven-year warranty.
The MG5 EV is supplied with a cool Arctic White paint finish as standard – while a range of optional colours are also available, including Black Pearl, Piccadilly Blue and Dynamic Red.
Entry-level SE grades are fitted with eye-catching and super-efficient 16-inch alloy wheels, tinted windows and silver roof rails – the latter offering extra load-carrying possibilities. As you’d expect from an estate, the MG5 EV enables straightforward access to a five-seat cabin that affords plenty of leg and headroom in both compartments. It also features a minimum-capacity 464-litre boot, which grows to 1,456 litres whenever rear seats are folded.
An electric motor (powered by a 61.1kWh battery), enables the MG5 EV to deliver a range of up to 250 miles (SE trims) or 235 miles (Trophy grades). Naturally, the car is very affordable to run and produces no CO2 emissions whatsoever.
Multimedia highlights include a six-speaker 3D-sound system (with DAB radio), a 10.25-inch touchscreen, a pair of USB ports in both compartments, and Bluetooth connectivity. You can also mirror your Apple/Android smartphone via the aforementioned display.
A wide range of passive and active safety features are included, such as multiple airbags, ISOFIX child-seat fixtures and Hill-launch Assist. The latter is a very useful piece of tech which facilitates smooth starts whenever the car is parked on a slope.
