MG has introduced a new long-range model of its all-electric MG5 estate. Available to order now in two trim levels, the car has a starting price of £26,495 after the £2,500 plug-in car grant.

Billed as a less expensive alternative to mainstream electric models like the Volkswagen ID.3 and KIA e-Niro, the MG5 LR offers a larger-capacity battery than the standard model introduced to the UK in October 2020, resulting in a range of up to 250 miles, compared to the 214-mile range of the standard model.

The MG5 is a restyled version of the Roewe Ei5 estate available in China’s domestic market. The MG5 LR model uses a 61.1kW/h battery and a 154bhp electric motor to drive the front wheels. Performance is brisk, with a 0-60mph time of 7.3 seconds and a top speed of 115mph. The standard model with its 52.2kW/h battery can complete the same sprint in a little over eight seconds.

Using a rapid 100kW charger, the MG5 LR’s battery can be charged from zero to 80 per cent in just 40 minutes, whereas the standard model takes 50 minutes at a 50kW rapid charging point. A home wallbox with Type2 fast charging, meanwhile, gives the MG5 LR a full charge in around 9.5 hours, which is roughly the same as the standard model but still ideal for an overnight home recharge or a top up at the office during the day

Both the standard and long-range versions of the MG5 are available in two trim levels called Excite and Exclusive. Range-entry Excite models gets 16-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, rear parking sensors and follow-me-home headlights. Cruise control, auto-hold hill start and a speed limiter are also standard.

Interior features include cloth-trimmed seats on Excite models, with faux leather upholstery reserved for the Exclusive. Both models get air conditioning, a six-speaker stereo, a seven-inch digital dial cluster and an eight-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The MG5 LR Exclusive model which is priced at £28,995 (after the PiCG) also gets heated front seats and driver’s lumbar support. Other upgrades include smart keyless entry with push-button start, an automatically dimming rear-view mirror, rain-sensing wipers, automatic air conditioning and satnav.

According to MG, placing the car’s battery in the floor has maximised interior space and offers plenty of head and legroom for rear passengers.

Boot space remains unchanged in the MG5 LR and is an impressive 578 litres behind the rear seats, extending to 1,456 litres with its row two seats folded down.

Rear-seat passengers are well-catered for with decent headroom and plenty of legroom, even if sitting behind a tall driver. In addition, front-seat passengers in the MG5 LR benefit from six-way adjustable driver and four-way adjustable passenger seats.

The MG5 LR features a suite of in-car technology and essential safety systems. Chief among these is MG Pilot, which brings a host of driver-assistance systems. These include active emergency braking, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, traffic jam assist, blind spot detection and intelligent speed limit assist.
