2023 MG 4 price and specs: Electric car to start from $44,990

The MG 4 electric hatchback is due to reach Australia in a choice of three model grades priced from $44,990 plus on-road costs – but cheaper models are under consideration.

Three-model launch range with two battery sizes
Cheaper 51kWh battery and all-wheel-drive performance model on the cards Priced from $44,990 plus on-road costs

The 2023 MG 4 electric car from China will arrive in Australia later this year in a choice of three model grades priced from $44,990 plus on-road costs.

Due in showrooms in the second half of this year, the MG 4 – an electric hatchback the size of a Toyota Corolla – will be available with 64kWh or 77kWh battery packs, and Excite or Essence model grade.

The $44,990 price is dearer the $43,990 RRP MG ZS EV Excite small SUV – and misses out on the title of Australia’s cheapest new electric car.
MG Australia says a more affordable 51kWh Excite base model is under consideration, as well as a high-performance, all-wheel-drive X-Power model with more than 300kW, and a 0-100km/h sprint time of less than four seconds.
If they are given the green light for Australia, they could be in showrooms before the end of this year – a few months after the three MG 4 launch variants. The 51kWh version could cost close to $40,000 plus on-road costs.

Standard features on the Excite model include 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, a 10.25-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, four speakers, a reversing camera, fabric seat upholstery, and safety features such as autonomous emergency braking and lane-keep assist.

However, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert – which are standard on cheaper MG petrol cars, and a $30,000 Isuzu D-Max work ute – are reserved for the Essence grades, which start from $47,990 plus on-road costs.
