Australian EV buyers will get their first look at the new MG4 with its reveal at the Fully Charged LIVE event in a couple of weeks.
Billed as ‘The World’s No 1 Home Energy and Electric Vehicle Show’ the Fully Charged LIVE event was first held in the UK in 2018.
Subsequent events were held in the UK and USA, while the Sydney event will be first to be held in Australia.
Fully Charged, aka The Fully Charged Show, is a YouTube channel, podcast and website founded in 2010 by English writer, broadcaster and actor Robert Llewellyn.
He’s best known for playing the mechanoid Kryton in the sci-fi comedy Red Dwarf.
Full details of MG4 Australian specifications and prices are yet to be announced, but it’s expected to become the most affordable EV sold here to date.
Coinciding with the MG4 reveal will be details of a longer-range version of MG’s popular ZS EV which has been on sale since August, 2020.
MG’s Peter Ciao is excited to showcase the new MG4 and to expand the ZS EV model with a longer range model.
“MG4 is the first MG to be based on our EV-only MSP (Modular Scalable Platform),” he said.
“This introduction of our EV-only platform signals our ongoing commitment to ‘Take Charge’ and intention to move toward an EV future.”
Ciao said MG had listened to customer feedback for the new ZS EV variant.
“We listened to our customer’s feedback and have fast tracked the arrival of our long range ZS EV with a larger 72kw battery pack and 440km of range to Australia.
“This provides more peace of mind in terms of minimising range anxiety and matches our pursuit of driving
“Our customers can take great pride and comfort knowing that their MG4 features the latest technology, world class design and quality materials resulting in a five-star Euro NCAP rating.”
Fully Charged LIVE will be held at Sydney’s International Convention Centre on March 11-12.
As well as the MG ZS EV, visitors will also be able to test drive the new BYD Atto 3 and the Polestar 2.
