The EV took home three coveted titles including Car of the Year, Best Small Family Car, and Best Value Car.
- The MG4 EV is the first fully electric hatchback in the MG line-up. It offers two battery options and an impressive 323 miles (WLTP) range with the standard SE trim.
- A testament to its practicality and affordability, the MG4 EV has won three awards at the Parkers New Car Awards 2024.
- Not only was it named Car of The Year and Best Small Family Car, but also the Best Value Car.
The MG4 EV has officially raised the bar for small electric hatchbacks, after scooping up three awards at the Parkers New Car Awards 2024.
The awards have been recently refreshed amid the growing EV market, focussing on size over powertrain.
Jointly named Car of the Year, Best Small Family Car, and Best Value Car, there’s clearly much to love about the MG4. Let’s take a look at what judges loved the most.
Design and build
With a spacious, well-thought-out design, it’s easy to see how the MG4 EV makes the perfect family car. It offers enough space to seat a typical family of four comfortably, plus plenty of boot space for luggage.
As for practicality, the MG4 EV has plenty to offer when it comes to everyday convenience. It features a 10.25” colour touchscreen as standard, with physical shortcut buttons so you can easily find what you’re looking for.
With Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, you can easily pair your smartphone to integrate apps and music on-the-go.
Plus, with the MG iSMART app, you can easily find your nearest charging point when you need a boost.
It’s rare in the EV market to get the latest technology and style for a lower price. Though the MG4 EV excels when it comes to value for money.
Starting from just £26,700, the MG4 EV is incredibly affordable – around £10,000 cheaper than its competitors. Another reason why it’s loved by both families and electric car enthusiasts alike!
Uncompromising in quality, the MG4 EV still offers the same – if not better – quality driving experience. Judges praised its well-weighted steering, excellent brakes, and engaging drive - making it a true rarity in its class.
For such a reasonable price, you also get a generous range of technology too. The MG4 EV offers several Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) as standard. These include:
- Active Emergency Braking with Pedestrian and Bicycle Detection
- Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning System
- Traffic Jam Assist
- Intelligent Speed Limit Assist with Traffic Sign Recognition
- Intelligent High Beam Assist
- Adaptive Cruise Control
Another area where the MG4 EV sets itself apart. The hatchback features an innovative, fully electric powertrain that is uncompromisingly efficient.
Even with the standard SE trim, you can get as much as 323 miles (WLTP) of driving range on a single charge.
At the top of the ladder, the Trophy Extended Range trim will give you up to 425 miles (WLTP) range. This makes the MG4 EV perfect for both city driving and country-road cruising.
Whichever you choose, you’ll be able to benefit from fast charging. Using a 150kW ultra-fast charger, it can be charged from 10 – 80% in just 35 minutes.
Alan Taylor-Jones, Parkers new cars editor, commented on the win:
“The MG4 is a genuinely excellent electric hatchback at a price that’s barely believable. It’s also great to drive, balancing handling and comfort expertly – and range and efficiency are both exactly where they need to be.”
Keith Adams, editor of Parkers, also said:
“Taking the top honours in the Parkers New Car Awards 2024 is a remarkable achievement for MG. It's great to see the brand going from strength to strength under its current owners.”
