The British automaker said it has designed the MSP for a wide range of vehicles, from hatchbacks to SUVs and sports cars – suitable for wheelbases ranging from 2,650 to 3,100 mm.
The manufacturer has also revealed its new integrated battery structure has a height of just 110mm, enhancing roadholding and driver engagement even further.
With the MG4 EV, the company underlines an enhanced driving experience derived from a new rear-wheel drive platform, which allows 50:50 weight distribution, it said.
Describing the MSP’s main features, the company said it has been designed to maximise battery efficiency, with concerted efforts to further reduce weight and allow scalable range and performance for a wide variety of customer requirements, offering enhanced interior space and luggage capacity.
Initially available with battery capacities from 51kWh to 64kWh, the MG4 EV will be capable of between 218-281 miles range on the WLTP cycle, the company said.
The company further said the architecture allows integration with future technologies including battery swap systems, while the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) will enable vehicles to receive Over-The-Air (OTA) updates throughout their lifecycle.
“The MG4 EV is a key part of the next phase of growth for MG,” said David Allison, Head of Product & Planning at MG Motor UK. “Our new MSP architecture will enable us to offer multiple options for the rapidly expanding UK electric car market.”
Referring to the sales of its existing range of all-electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, including the MG ZS EV Long Range and MG5 EV Long Range, the company said it grew 83 per cent in the first five months of 2022. The market contracted 8.7 per cent in the same period, according to data from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.
Further details on the new MG4 EV will be released soon, including announcements on UK pricing, full specifications and official first UK viewings, the company said.
