It’s no overstatement to say that MG has transformed itself in recent years. Although its cars have always offered decent value for money, the brand’s pre-electric range was somewhat lacking in appeal. Now, in the electric era, MG is back to its best. The MG5 estate and MG ZS SUV set new benchmarks for value when they first arrived and remain great buys for drivers looking to switch to battery power.

2023 sees the MG electric range at its most impressive and comprehensive yet. Sitting alongside facelifted versions of the MG5 and MG ZS is the brand’s third new model, the MG4. A multiple award-winner, the MG4 has redefined the electric car sector bringing with it remarkable value for money and striking design.

But which is the right one for you? Join Nicki as she puts all three through the review process, highlighting their strengths and giving you all the key facts and figures along the way.
