MG 4 engine, performance and range

MG’s electric car comes in two main technical configurations:

  • The first combines a lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP) battery with a gross capacity of 51 kWh with an engine developing up to 125 kW of maximum power, or 170 horsepower, and torque of 250 Nm.
  • The second carries a Nickel Manganese Cobalt (NMC) battery with a gross capacity increased to 64 kWh. The engine is also a little more powerful: 150 kW, or 204 horsepower.

In both cases, the configuration is two-wheel drive and the maximum speed is limited to 160 km/h. However, the palm of the acceleration goes to the standard version which, less powerful but lighter, performs the exercise in 7.7 seconds.

In terms of autonomy, it’s obviously the 64 kWh battery that wins. It can travel up to 450 kilometers on the WLTP cycle against 350 km for the version equipped with the 51 kWh battery.
