It has been reported elsewhere that a "long range" version of the MG5 EV SW is due to be announced next Tuesday.

Information gleaned from the accidental leak shows that the refreshed MG5 EV SW has the following:
  1. WTLP is that it will have a 250 miles range owing to a 9kwh upgrade to the battery.
  2. Have MG Pilot like the ZS EV.
  3. Have a roof load capacity of 75kg
  4. Be styled in the same as the current U.K version of the car and not the soon to be released version for the E.U market.
  5. The car is to cost £1500 more than the current model.
Here's the E.U model for reference

MG 5 SW EV gains bigger battery for 250-mile range

New variant, priced from £26,495, is said to offer the highest range per pound of any EV on sale in the UK

The MG 5 SW EV has gained a new variant with a larger 61.1kWh battery, which the Chinese firm says gives it a 250-mile range.


Prices for the new range-topping electric estate start at £26,495 for Excite trim, while the Exclusive starts from £28,995 (post-grant).



The new 5 will be sold alongside the existing entry-level model, which is advertised with a 214-mile official range.


MG says the EV can be charged up to 80% in just 61 minutes from a 50kW rapid-charger or in 40 minutes from a 100kW rapid-charger.


A full charge can be completed in approximately 9.5 hours from a standard home charger.


“With the new longer-range model, we’re offering MG customers even greater value and flexibility from their EVs,” said MG marketing director David Pugh.


“With a full charge giving a WLTP-approved range of 250 miles and the ability to be rapid-charged to 80% in as little as 40 minutes, the MG 5 EV is a car that really can bring electric motoring to the masses, and it has played a big part in MG’s rapid charge ahead as one of the leaders in the UK EV market.”


MG also claims the 5 now offers the highest range-per-pound of any EV in the UK. It's aiming the model at the fleet market, with small and medium-sized businesses in mind.


The upgrade also brings MG's pilot advanced driver assistance feature, which includes a selection of warning and alert features, including automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assistance and adaptive cruise control.


The new 5 also gets MG's seven-year warranty.
