  • The MG4 EV has been announced as 2023’s Best Small Electric Car at the influential What Car? awards, during a prestigious black-tie ceremony on Park Lane, Mayfair
  • The expert car reviewer described MG’s compact EV as ‘the right car at the right time’, praising it for offering excellent levels of space, standard equipment and driver engagement
  • The MG5 EV and ZS EV also received notable mentions by What Car?, being named as ‘Best Electric’ in the Estate category (MG5 EV) and ‘Best for Value’ in the Electric SUV category (ZS EV)
  • MG has also secured its position as the fastest growing mainstream car brand for a second year, selling over 51,000 vehicles in the UK in 2022

The MG4 EV has been named ‘Best Small Electric Car’ at the 2023 What Car? Car of the Year awards, a prestigious ceremony which celebrates the best cars currently on sale.

Recognised as a trusted, independent and expert voice in car reviewing, What Car? praised the MG4 as offering excellent value for money without compromising on quality.

Commenting on the MG4’s win, the What Car? judging panel said: "Given the rising cost of living, and the fact that electric cars tend to be quite expensive to buy, the MG4 EV – with its very keen pricing – feels like the right car at the right time. And crucially, corners haven't been cut to achieve that pricing.”

“In addition to undercutting rivals by thousands, the MG4 offers fast charging, plenty of space and lots of standard equipment. What's more it's good to drive and comes with the reassurance of a seven-year warranty."

The MG5 EV also received high praise from the What Car? judges, named as ‘Best Electric’ in the Estate car category, while the ZS EV was recognised as ‘Best for Value’ of the Electric SUV shortlist.

MG Motor has announced another record performance in 2022, with sales of over 51,000 cars in the UK resulting in a 66.7% increase on the previous year. The MG4 became the second most popular model in just three months, with around 3,000 examples of the compact EV being delivered between September and December.

As the first model based on the all-new Modular Scalable Platform (MSP), the MG4 has already been recognised as a class-leading EV – landing three overall UK Car of the Year titles in its first three months. The model has also secured the maximum five-star Euro NCAP safety rating in December 2022.

MG’s new all-electric estate, the MG5, has also received significant interest since launch in November, with growing demand for both new models expected to continue in 2023.
