MG fast tracks MG4, ZS EV Long Range for Aus

Stylish MG4 electric hatchback joins 440km ZS EV Long Range at unveiling in Sydney

13 Mar 2023

MG MOTOR Australia debuted its stylish MG4 electric hatch and a Long Range variant of the ZS EV small electric SUV at the Fully Charged Live event in Sydney over the weekend, the latter going on sale later this month at $55,990 drive-away.


No pricing has been announced for the electric-only MG4 small hatch, which will be available for purchase from the second half of this year.


The Chinese importer said it fast-tracked the models’ arrival Down Under due to unprecedented demand for its current battery electric vehicle (BEV) offering, as well as customer feedback and anticipation around both vehicles.


According to MG Motor Australia, the MG4 hatchback boasts several innovations and key features it says will set it apart from other BEV offerings in the market.


It highlighted the model’s scalable platform – developed by parent company SAIC – as part of a “superior driving experience” that has helped it score a bevy of awards in the UK, where the model has been on sale since mid-2022.


Meanwhile, the ZS EV Long Range is said to offer Australian buyers greater peace of mind when travelling longer distances, the model’s 72kWh battery pack providing up to 440km (WLTP) of range, or 120km more than the 50.3kWh standard model.


The MG4 EV will be available in 51kWh and 64kWh capacities, which are said to offer ranges of up to 350km and 450km respectively. Using a DC fast charger, the MG4 can be charged to 80 per cent in as little as 40 minutes, while the ZS EV Long Range takes 63 minutes.


Speaking at the Fully Charged Live event in Sydney, MG Motor Australia and New Zealand CEO Peter Ciao said the EV models on display are representative of the brand’s commitment to making electric vehicles accessible to everyone.


“MG Motor is very excited to be a part of the inaugural Fully Charged Live event here in Australia. So much so that we have decided to use this event as a platform to announce two major milestones in the Australian and New Zealand EV landscape,” he said.


“Following the success of the ZS EV in September last year, we have listened to our customers’ feedback and have fast-tracked the arrival of our new ZS EV Long Range.


“We know Australians love to drive and now they can go even further thanks to a larger 72kWh battery pack and 440km range in the ZS EV Long Range.


“Equally, for this reason, we felt there was no better stage than Fully Charged Live to offer a glimpse of MG’s future in previewing our first global modular scalable platform in the MG4 and we know you’ll be as excited as we are to see it on Aussie and NZ roads in H2 this year.”
