Thrilling MG4 EV XPOWER To Shake Up EV Market

Author: Kevin Harvey | Updated: 5th July 2023

When the MG4 launched last Autumn, it caused a big stir in the EV market. It’s exceptional range and sporty styling, coupled with low pricing made it a genuine game changer. It’s no surprise that many have flocked to own it. Well MG are about to change the EV landscape yet again.

The new MG4 EV XPOWER features a dual EV motor which delivers 435PS and achieves 0-62mph in a rapid 3.8 seconds. Those numbers will rival many petrol-driven high performance sports cars. However, the MG4 EV XPOWER delivers this in a hatchback for just £36,495.

  • MG’s new dual motor MG4 EV XPOWER will launch in July 2023, due to debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on 13th July 2023.
  • Prices start at £36,495 and the range-topping 435PS EV will be the most powerful production MG ever!
  • MG are also due to unveil the EX4 concept at Goodwood.

At Moneyshake, we love the look of the MG4 so we’re happy that MG have decided to make only subtle tweaks to the exterior styling on the XPOWER. The most notable of which are the orange brake callipers, two-tone black roof and 18″ alloy wheels. We also love the new racing green colour option – a nod to MG’s British racing heritage.

Guy Pigounakis, Commercial Director at MG Motor UK, said:

“We’re confident the MG4 XPOWER will shake-up the market like the MG4 SE and Trophy, showing that a compact EV can be affordable, practical and a terrific drive.”

“We expect it will appeal to customers looking for a pure performance offering which is the antithesis of the traditionally ‘loud’ high performance hatchback. The XPOWER also retains the generous technology and equipment levels, as well as practical hatchback features, of the award-winning MG4 range.”

The Re-Emergence of MG

Since production restarted under the brand in China in 2007, MG has started to emerge as one of the leaders in the EV car market. Boosted by the launch of the MG4 in Autumn 2022, at Moneyshake we’ve seen enquiries for leasing MG cars increased 55% going into the first quarter of 2023.

MG Motor UK has also revealed a third high performance MG will debut during Goodwood Festival of Speed, confirming a new concept car will be shown in the First Glance paddock at the event from Thursday 13th July.

The MG EX4 boldly reimagines the Metro 6R4 rally legend of the 1980s, underpinned by the MG4 XPOWER’s electric drivetrain. Designed by MG’s team in London, who played a key role in creating the new MG Cyberster, the EX4 will feature a distinctive livery designed especially for Goodwood and celebrates the 40th anniversary of the Metro 6R4.
