MG Motor UK has continued a hugely successful awards run so far in 2023, recognised by two major independent awards within the fleet sector.
At the prestigious Fleet News Awards at Grosvenor House, Park Lane, BBC News anchor and 2023 awards host Huw Edwards revealed the MG4 EV as ‘EV Breakthrough of the Year’.
Fleet News lauded MG’s new all-electric hatchback as a true driver’s car, praising its winning combination of excellent range and affordable price point.
The panel of judges commented, “MG is changing the game in the electric vehicle sector by bringing down the entry level price point with usable real-world range. Yet the MG4 is anything but entry level: drivers love it and evangelise about their experiences, making the car a viable alternative to true premium rivals.”
The MG4 EV had a successful evening after receiving high praise from Fleet News in the category of "Best Lower Medium Car." The MG4 EV, which has a starting price of just £26,995, has already proven popular with customers as a vehicle that provides quality electric motoring at an accessible price.
The MG4 EV has been named as UK Car of the Year 2023, with a panel of experts selecting the all-electric hatchback as the best new car on sale in the UK today.
An expert panel of 27 automotive journalists praised the MG4 EV’s design, quality and outstanding value for money - recognising that the new fully electric hatchback puts zero emissions motoring within reach for more people than ever.
The MG4 EV has been crowned as the overall winner from a final list of seven popular new cars, ranking ahead of models from Dacia, Land Rover, Lotus, Kia and Toyota.
The MG4 EV has won fifteen major awards in the last six months, including four overall Car of the Year titles and most recently, the title of "Best Family Car," which it won at the UKCOTY semi-final last month. The model was honoured by Euro NCAP as well, earning the highest possible five-star safety rating after a stringent testing procedure.
Guy Pigounakis, Commercial Director of MG Motor UK, was presented with the award at MG Piccadilly, the company’s flagship showroom in the heart of London.
“We couldn’t be prouder of what the MG4 has achieved in such a short time,” said Guy. “Winning UK Car of the Year demonstrates the immense capabilities of our new all-electric hatchback and there’s much more to come in 2023. I would like to personally thank each expert who took part in the judging process.”
UKCOTY head judge and founder John Challen said, “The MG4 proves that electric cars can be affordable, practical and appeal to all areas of the automotive market. Fully charged, it offers more than enough miles for the vast majority of journeys, while the design and driving dynamics tick two other important boxes for consumers. A deserved winner for the electric future.”
MG Motor UK remains the fastest growing car brand in the UK, with the MG4 EV spearheading its hugely successful start to 2023.
