The MG4 EV is celebrating success after being named ‘Small Electric Car of the Year’ and ‘Best Electric Hot Hatch’ at the 2024 What Car? Car of the Year awards. This adds to its tally of awards that it has won since its launch in Autumn 2022, bringing the total to over 30. It also ended 2023 as the second best-selling electric car in the UK.

The What Car? team recognised that the MG4 EV offers excellent value for money in its broad range of models in the range for customers to choose from. This includes the accessible MG4 EV SE, and long-distance MG4 EV Extended Range, which have earned the electric hatchback the best small family car title. The performance-focused XPOWER, which can sprint from 0-62mph in 3.8 seconds, was also highlighted as best electric hot hatch.

Commenting on the MG4 EV’s win, Steve Huntingford, editor at What Car? said: “The MG4 EV is very well priced, yet this hasn't been achieved by cutting corners. Instead, it's a practical electric family car with a good range and neat handling that just happens to be great value. All things considered; we reckon it's one of the best cars to ever wear the MG badge.”

Elsewhere in the MG range, the MG5 EV was also recognised, being named “Best Electric Estate”, and the MG ZS EV was recognised as “Best Small Electric SUV for Value”, both titles that they also won last year.

“It’s a fantastic achievement for the MG4 EV to have been recognised by What Car? again. During 2023, the MG4 EV range delivered even more choice for customers, with models like the Extended Range, offering families great practicality and over 300 miles of driving on a single charge,” said David Allison, MG Head of Product and Planning. “To have triumphed two years in a row, and won such a key award that so many car buyers will be looking at, is a source of immense pride for everyone at MG.”
