Key Points

  • MG 4 EV launching in H2 2023
  • Three variants, two battery sizes, dedicated EV platform
  • Up to 450km driving range, 10.25-inch touchscreen, open floor interior

The much anticipated MG 4 electric hatchback will launch in the second half of this year, as another more affordable new electric vehicle option in Australia.

While local pricing hasn’t been confirmed yet, the MG 4 EV will be available in three variants providing up to 450km of claimed WLTP driving range – and features a 10.25-inch tablet-style touchscreen with wired Apple CarPlay and wired Android Auto, an open flat-floor interior, and rides on SAIC Motor’s Modular Scalable Platform (MSP) dedicated EV platform.

The small electric hatch will be offered with both the Standard Range 50.8kWh usable battery based on the cheaper, longer-lasting lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP) chemistry and a larger 61.7kWh usable nickel-manganese-cobalt (NMC) battery at launch.


The MG 4 will likely be eligible for most Australian electric car incentives, including the fringe benefits tax (FBT) exemption for company fleets and novated leases.

According to overseas specifications, the Chinese-made MG electric car is capable of up to 11kW AC and 150kW DC charging speeds via the rear-left positioned Type 2/CCS plug. It's also capable of vehicle-to-load (V2L).

The MG 4 rivals sub-$50,000 Chinese rivals, including the GWM Ora EV small hatch, MG ZS EV and BYD Atto 3 small SUVs, as well as pricier models such as the Nissan Leaf and Cupra Born electric cars.

MG 4 Warranty and Servicing

The MG 4 electric car is expected to be covered by a seven-year, unlimited kilometre vehicle and battery warranty, which also applies to its roadside assistance and capped-price servicing coverage.

More details should be expected ahead of its launch later in the year, but the Chinese automaker does have a network of more than 80 servicing and dealer locations across Australia.

For reference, the ZS EV small SUV only requires maintenance every 24 months/40,000km.
