MG wins ‘Best Electric Car’ at 2023 Autocar Awards

  • MG4 EV back on the podium with significant award
  • Autocar experts praise affordability, driver engagement and spacious interior

The MG4 EV returned to the podium last night, securing the ‘Best Electric Car’ title at the 2023 Autocar Awards held at the iconic Silverstone race circuit.

Since arriving in the UK in the autumn of 2022, the all-electric hatchback has secured a host of prestigious titles and played a key role in MG’s impressive sales growth. The MG4 EV was the UK’s second best-selling electric car in the first quarter of this year, with over 5,200 customers taking delivery of the model since launch in September 2022.

Autocar Editor Mark Tisshaw commented:
“MG has become a big hitter in the UK car market with their cars value striking a chord with customers. The MG4 impressed all our judges, but what is most intriguing is that this looks like a sign of things of much to come from MG. But for now, there is no doubt the MG4 is an electric family car that offers impressive spaciousness, driver engagement, rapid charging and range for a very competitive price.”

Guy Pigounakis, MG UK’s Commercial Director, added:
“Receiving an Autocar award is a very significant achievement, and we’d like to thank the expert judging panel for their very positive feedback. There’s certainly much more to come from MG and this includes our recent announcement that we will return to manufacturing sports cars. The Cyberster, a full EV roadster, will arrive in the UK next year and will build on the success of the MG4.”
