MG Motor Australia has unveiled its new MG4 EV XPOWER model which features dual motor all-wheel drive and that can zip from 0 to 100km/h in 3.8 seconds.
The new MG4 XPOWER is priced at $59,990 plus on road costs.
The XPOWER is the company’s highest performing all-wheel drive electric hatchback – in fact it will be its most powerful production car ever.
The company’s approach with the MG4 XPOWER is all about delivering to Australian drivers impressive power and dynamics at an extremely competitive price.
With 320kW of power and up to 600Nm toque, the MG4 XPOWER is up there with some of the highest performing EVs on the market and offers plenty of bang for your buck.
The MG4 XPOWER can go zero to 100km/h in 3.8 seconds so you’re definitely ticking the box when it comes to performance.
The car also has several understated exterior design revisions which also helps it stand out from the crowd.
On the outside you’ll see orange XPOWER brake callipers, two tone black roof with 18-inch alloy wheels and polished trim accents and an all-new colour option – Hunter Green.
“The MG4 XPOWER has supercar performance packed with features including launch control and a track mode inspired lap timer showing that a compact EV can be affordable, practical and spirited to drive,” says MG Motor Australia and New Zealand CEO Peter Ciao.
“We expect it will appeal to customers looking for a true performance car with plenty of technology and space to match.
“The MG4 XPOWER EV also retains the generous safety equipment levels, as well as practical hatchback features, of the award-winning MG4 range.
“The MG4 XPOWER is available to register your interest from this week and promises to be one of the most exciting new electric cars of 2023, marking a new milestone in MG Australia’s highly anticipated return to the performance car market.”
The MG4 XPOWER is based on the Modular Scalable Platform and has a dual motor configuration to deliver to all four wheels via 150kW at the front and rear 170kW electric motors for a total of 320kW.
On the safety side, there are new upgrades including a new Dynamic Cornering Control System available for the first time in an MG vehicle plus an Intelligent Motor Control to control torque vectoring between all four wheels to gain maximum traction in all driving conditions.
The 64kWh battery is capable of charging at up to 140kW so users can go from 10 per cent to 80 per cent using 150kW DC rapid charger in just 26 minutes.
