MG’s affordable and very likeable small EV, the MG4, has walked of with this year’s Car of the Year award, adding the prestigious title to a growing list of accolades.
Judged by an expert panel of 27 automotive journalists, The MG4 won out from a final list of seven popular new cars from Dacia, Land Rover, Lotus, Kia and Toyota. The panel praised the MG4’s design, quality and outstanding value for money which puts electric motoring within reach for more people than ever. Priced from just £26,995 the MG4 EV is considerably cheaper than its rivals without losing out on driving experience or range.
The independent awards ceremony is designed specifically for the UK car-buying public, judged by a panel of experts that includes some of the most respected names in motoring journalism. Paul Hudson, motoring editor at The Telegraph, said of the MG4, “No other EV comes close to offering so much for relatively little outlay. It looks good inside and out, drives way better than you might imagine and the range is more than competitive. Whether you’re new to EVs or not, you won’t be disappointed.”
Guy Pigounakis, Commercial Director of MG Motor UK, said of the award, “We couldn’t be prouder of what the MG4 has achieved in such a short time. Winning UK Car of the Year demonstrates the immense capabilities of our new all-electric hatchback and there’s much more to come in 2023. I would like to personally thank each expert who took part in the judging process.”
