The MG MG5 EV offers longer range

MG MG5 EV car lease front

A new longer-range MG5 electric vehicle has been unveiled and it’s an impressive value for money offering.

In an increasingly competitive electric vehicle segment, the MG MG5 car lease range with a more powerful battery will attract attention.

The new model with the 61.1kWh battery is now on sale and it delivers an impressive 250 miles of range.

When used solely for urban driving, the battery range increases to a useful 334 miles, thanks largely to the regenerative braking system onboard.

It takes just over an hour to recharge the battery to 80% of its capacity using a rapid charger.

Alternatively, drivers can recharge the battery overnight and this will take 9.5 hours using a domestic supply.

Contract hire MG MG5

The contract hire MG MG5 also features the firm’s ‘Pilot Driver’ assistance systems.

This is a range of driver assistance technologies to help bring confidence on the roads.

These include lane keep assist, active emergency braking, traffic jam assist and adaptive cruise control.

The MG5 is currently one of the market leaders in the UK and there’s a lot to recommend it as a car leasing opportunity.

The power for the MG MG5 electric car lease comes from a 115kW motor producing 156 PS.

The power is sent to the front wheels and with a low centre of gravity, thanks to the location of the battery pack, which means this is an agile and nimble car.

It’s also a practical choice too with a boot size of 464 litres, and with the rear seats folded flat, this increases to 1,456 litres.

It’s also an attractive car for company car drivers with a 1% Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) tax rate, which rises to 2% in 2022/23.

There’s also a seven-year manufacturer’s warranty and it’s a safe car too.

Eight-inch colour display

Drivers get an eight-inch colour display that is smartphone compatible and has DAB radio.

There’s also a six-speaker 3D audio sound system, electric windows, four USB ports and air-conditioning.

There’s also a seven-inch driver information display, a leather steering wheel, rear parking sensors and three driving modes to make this an easy car to drive.

The Exclusive trim adds leather-style upholstery, silver roof rails, smart key entry, satnav and push-button start.

Prices for the MG MG5 EV Exclusive car lease model with the long-range battery starts at just £28,995 – and the contract hire deals are certainly worth checking out.
