MG’s latest electric vehicle coming to Australia in 2023 will be the MG4, a small five-door hatchback that seats five.
Pricing and features for the MG4 have yet to be announced, but here’s what we know about the new electric car.

MG already offers Australians the most affordable way to buy an electric vehicle with the MG ZS EV. We expect the MG4 to come in at an even lower price (maybe he’s $40,000) considering it’s a smaller car than the ZS.
The MG4 is expected to come in two grades, an entry-level version and a more premium version.
As such, the MG4 could become Australia’s most affordable new EV, but will face tough electric competition from BYD’s Atto 3, Volkswagen’s ID.3 and Cupra’s Born.
Features and technology
Even with the entry-level MG4, you can expect high-level equipment at a low price.
If the UK version is okay, the entry-level vehicle could have a 10.25-inch media touchscreen, a 7.0-inch digital instrument cluster, digital radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a four-speaker stereo. I have.
A top-tier could include all of these, but add six-speaker stereo, satellite navigation, and wireless phone charging.
The MG4 is a small hatch with a length of 4287mm, a width of 1836mm and a height of 1594mm. It’s about the size of a Toyota Corolla or a Hyundai i30.
The MG 4 is a 5-seater, 5-door (including rear hatch) with a trunk capacity of 363 liters, which is 3 liters larger than that of the Corolla hatch.
range and battery
The MG4 is expected to have a choice of two batteries, standard range and long range.
The Standard Range battery is a 51kWh battery that provides up to 350km range (WLTP). The long range battery is a 64kWh battery that can travel up to 452km (WLTP).
The standard range battery can handle a maximum charge rate of up to 117kW and the long range battery can accept 135kW. That’s not bad at all.
Public money changers in Australia have chargers with different speeds, from Standard (22kW) to Fast (50kW) and Rapid (350kW).
It takes 52 minutes to charge a standard range battery from 10 to 80% using a fast 50kW charger, and 1 hour for long range.
Expect the MG4 to come with MG’s 7 year/unlimited kilometer warranty and 7 year/unlimited kilometer battery warranty.
That concludes our brief guide to what you need to know about the MG4 before it launches in Australia.
The MG4 goes on sale in Australia in the first half of 2023, and here’s everything you need to know about how it drives, how much it costs to buy and more.
