MG 5 EV Pricing

Tom Says



“The MG5 is a really interesting car. It's not exciting to drive or look at, but it does a really good job of being practical and useful at a price which undercuts everything else. I really respect that.”

Ginny Says



“The MG5 makes a refreshing change to SUVs. It might not be as fashionable but its great for family and business drivers. I'd expect loads of taxi drivers to love this car too - it will save them a fortune.”

The price and tax efficiency of the MG5 could mean it'll be a hit for fleet and business drivers who need an electric car with a large boot.

MG 5 EV pricing 

Up to now the cheapest MG electric car was the 163-mile ZS EV but the MG5 undercuts that by £1,000. In fact, the MG5 undercuts most other family-sized electric cars by around £5,000 so it’s very good value for money. 

There are just two trim levels to keep things simple. The £24,495 Excite gets 16-inch alloys, an eight-inch infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a reversing camera, air conditioning, cruise control and parking sensors, while the Exclusive, for £26,995, adds imitation leather seats, heated front seats, an electrically-adjustable driver’s seats, keyless entry, roof rails and automatic air conditioning.  

MG 5 EV Running costs 

Just like other electric cars, the MG5 has the potential to save owners thousands of pounds a year with cheap road tax and maintenance costs. Plug it in overnight and a full charge should cost a little over £7, which is cheap compared to an equivalent petrol or diesel Ford Focus Estate.

MG is really targeting fleets with the MG5 and it’s easy to see why company car drivers could be tempted. There’s zero benefit-in-kind for 2020-21, which rises to 1% in 2021-22 and 2% the year after, and there’s a seven-year, 80,000-mile warranty thrown in for free.
