When does the new MG5 arrive in the UK?
The car is on sale now, and the company has decent stocks too, so you shouldn't wait too long for one.
Is the new MG5 more expensive?
Yes, inevitably. The old 5 was around £27,000 but the new model has risen by £1,300 for SE and £1,500 for Trophy, plus the government grant has disappeared. That means the new model starts at a fiver under £31,000.
How long does it take to charge the MG5?
The MG5 can be charged at a wallbox charger with a Type 2 cable or at a fast-charger using a CCS cable. Plug in at home from a 7kW wallbox and a full charge will take eight and a half hours, while a 0-80% top-up from a fast-charger at a supermarket car park will take 50 minutes.
What are the main improvements on the new MG5 EV?
The biggest change is the more modern look inside and out, but it also gets the much-needed app and connectivity from the ZS EV.
Does the new MG5 still look like it's wearing the wrong wheels?
Yes, it still does look a little bit strange, and as though it's on tip toes. The new 17-inch wheels on the top spec version don't make much of a difference either.
