Does everything it's supposed to, plus more

We've had it about a year. Mark 2 version with 51kwh battery. The drive is beautifully smooth, as all electric cars are (I'm told). City driving range goes up to as much as 350km. Highway range with full a-c and full load at 110kmh drops to as little as 250km. Battery capacity appears to be holding up well. Infotainment system is a bit Chinese cheap, and buggy, but ok. We overnight charge with the 7kw MG Chargehub on the cheap Powershop 10c/kw midnight to 4am electricity plan, and therefore we pay about $1.50 per 100km. It's free if we charge from our solar panels during the day. Bloody cheaper than petrol!!! MG customer service is ordinary, and the MG dealers are hit-and-miss, but that seems normal nowadays for most things. Show details

Great car, I love it , had it for 2 years now

Had my car for two years , great car.
Sometimes a little gutless on take off, can be a concern through busy roundabouts.
Have done two long haul trips no problems.
Fuel efficient , great value for the price.
EDIT: 4/01/2024 I've had it 3 years now and its still awesome. Show details ·  1

Questions & Answers

I read a review commenting on the air con saying that it couldn't keep the car at a comfortable enough temperaturte on really hot days.
Is this true?

The air conditioning works quite well on hot days but the MK1 has no climate control and can get too cold. It does take 30 kms off the driving range.

Thank you. I’m getting the later model which has the climate control

The sunroof adds significantly to heat generation in summer. I recommend avoiding the model with a sunroof.

Hello,
Is there any truth in the rumor that it is detrimental to EV's if only low K's are driven, or a month or so between uses?

Absolutely not. I think that statement is true for diesel

Thank you so much Zed. I had my doubts, glad I checked. Less work for car servicing too I suppose.
