The MG4 Is Now The Most Affordable Electric Vehicle In Australia


Recommended Posts

Wow! I loved my 1963 MG Spridget and Triumph Spitfire. Now MG has a new EV line that gets the same mileage in their MG4 long range ~330 miles, but at a cost of US $37,124 or about $13k less than the Tesla Model Y in Australia. Too bad we can't buy them here yet!

For investors this article points out that manufacturers overseas are getting closer to Tesla technology, range, and beating them on price. Good for consumers and investors worldwide. The transition to EVs is picking up speed worldwide, while prices continue to drop even or less than ICE cars and trucks.




The MG4 Is Now The Most Affordable Electric Vehicle In Australia

"There are now more affordable options for consumers looking to get EVs in quite a few markets around the world. It took a long time, but it’s finally happening in more markets around the world. In Thailand, the BYD Dolphin and the Ora Good Cat are already available at prices that are quite competitive with ICE equivalents. In the United Kingdom, the MG4 is also available at prices that are at parity with some ICE equivalents, such as the VW Golf. This is probably one of the reasons why the MG4 has had some outstanding sales figures so far in the UK.  MG had a record first quarter of sales in 2023 in the UK. In the first three months of the year, the company was the second bestselling manufacturer of electric cars in the UK. Only Tesla sold more EVs in the UK. Overall, MG registered 20,679 new cars (including ICE) in the first quarter of 2023, which was a huge 49.4% increase on the same period in 2022. More importantly, its market share of the electric car market now stands at 9.4%. This places MG amongst the UK’s fastest growing electric car brands.
