23 March 2021, 06:03:17

MG5 Electric and MG Marvel R Electric go official in EuropeMG has announced two new battery-electric vehicles. They follow the brand's first EV - the MG ZS which went on sale last year.

The new MG5 Electric is the first 100% electric station wagon in the world. Still, it features tech-style elements and offers attractive proportions and minimalistic design that enhance the appearance of a sophisticated modern and evolved vehicle. With a generous 578 litres of luggage space that can be expanded to a maximum of 1,456 litres with the rear seats folded down, the MG5 Electric offers plenty of usability. With a length of 4,544 mm, width of 1,811 mm and height of 1,513 mm, the electric station wagon offers a spacious interior for the family as well.

With the powerful lithium-ion battery mounted between the front and rear axle (wheelbase 2,665 mm), the MG5 Electric offers a range of more than 400 km (WLTP). In this case, the electric motor delivers 135 kW (184 ps) and 280 Nm torque. It also offers quick charging capability at a public charging point (AC) due to the 11 kW on-board 3-phase charger. And it's suitable for fast-charging (DC) to charge the battery up to 80% in just 30 minutes. MG5 Electric The MG5 Electric offers a maximum towing weight of 500 kg, a maximum trailer nose weight of 50 kg and a roof load of 75 kg. Fully in line with the practical and functional character of a station wagon, the MG5 Electric is therefore suitable for a bicycle carrier and roof box. The European market launch of the new MG5 Electric is scheduled for October this year. More details will be announced in the run-up to the sales start.

The MG Marvel R Electric is a high-tech, luxurious lifestyle SUV for the C-segment. It is 4,674 mm long, 1,919 mm wide, and 1,618 mm tall. The wheelbase measures 2,800 mm and offers therefore more than enough interior space. In addition to its attractive stance, the MG Marvel R Electric also offers a spacious and stunning interior with a 19.4-inch touchscreen and a 12.3 inch digital instrument panel.

With a range of over 400 kilometres (WLTP), the Marvel R Electric offers a great peace of mind, while drivers can count on quick charging capability at a public charging point (AC) due to the 11 kW on-board 3-phase charger. The battery is also suitable for fast-charging (DC) to fill it up to 80% in just 30 minutes. Meanwhile, the climate control with an internal heat pump guarantees optimal charging performance at low temperatures.

Another striking feature of the MG Marvel R Electric is the V2L system (vehicle-to-load). This technology allows the lithium-ion battery to supply energy to an external electrical system, for example an air pump, electric scooter, a laptop or even another BEV. This technology is considered as an important innovation for the clean energy transition and last-mile solution.

The drive technology uses an advanced all-wheel drive system with three electric motors: one on the front axle and two on the rear. The vehicle boasts a maximum output of 212 kW (288 ps) with a 665 Nm peak torque. This allows the SUV to accelerate from 0-50 km/h in just 1.8 seconds and from 0-100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds. The top speed is limited at 200 km/h. The Marvel R Electric will also be offered in a rear-wheel drive configuration with two electric motors.

The maximum towing weight of the MG Marvel R Electric is 750 kg. The car is suitable for towing a trailer or caravan. Or two e-bikes on a special bicycle carrier for example. The luggage compartment in the rear offers a volume of 357 litres. With the rear seat folded down, it can be increased to 1,396 litres. The RWD version of the Marvel R Electric also offers 150 litres of luggage space under the hood. The European market launch of the new MG Marvel R Electric is scheduled for May this year. More details will be announced in the run-up to the sales start.
