MG Motor attends Goodwood Festival of Speed 2022
MG Motor UK has been showing off the latest all-electric offering at Goodwood Festival of Speed 2022, where they offered visitors the chance to be among the first to see the new MG5 EV.
The first official UK viewing since MG Live! at Silverstone took place on the event’s new ‘Electric Avenue’ feature, with the award winning all electric estate car taking centre stage at Goodwood’s dedicated EV section.
Revisions to the exterior design extend to new front and rear bumpers, redesigned LED head and rear lights, and new wheel designs.
First seen on the all new ZS EV launched in November 2021, the new MG5 EV will also come equipped with Vehicle-To-Load (V2L) capability, meaning users can power other electric devices using the energy stored in the battery, such as e-bikes, portable heaters or camping equipment.
The new MG5 EV has also received interior design and technology upgrades, including a 10.25’’ widescreen infotainment system with upgraded software, and is now capable of supporting iSMART connected car functionality through MG’s dedicated smartphone app.
Commenting on the announcement, Guy Pigounakis, Commercial Director at MG Motor UK, said:
“The MG5 EV has quickly established a strong following as a practical, affordable and efficient estate car and we’re seeking to build upon that success by offering customers an even more attractive, compelling design as well as a generous range of technology upgrades. The MG ‘Get More’ philosophy is a key part of our approach – we believe our customers should get more and as standard – and we are confident that the new MG5 EV strongly reflects this.”
