MG has announced specifications and pricing of its new MG4 EV all-electric hatchback.

Three specifications will be offered at launch in September - theMG4 EV SE Standard Range, theSE Long Rangeand theTrophy Long Range.

The SE Standard Range is priced from £25,995, the SE Long Range from £28,495 and the Trophy Long Range from £31,495.

It is the first model to use MG's new modular scalable platform and the MG4 EV will pave the way for the next generation of all-electric MGs.

MG says the advanced platform offers drivers improved roadholding and engagement, thanks to 50:50 weight distribution, a rear-wheel drive configuration and a low centre of gravity from the battery design and placement.

Initially available with battery capacities from 51kWh to 64kWh, the MG4 EV Standard Range will be capable of 218 miles range with Long Range SE and Trophy Models capable of 281 miles and 270 miles respectively.

The 64kWh battery is also capable of charging up to 135kW, with a charge time of 35 minutes from 10 to 80 per cent using a 150kW DC rapid charger.

All MG4 EVs will have a seven-year warranty and come with high-tech features, including a 10.25-inch floating infotainment screen and a seven inch driver display with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity.

The car will also be equipped with the company's MG Pilot advanced driver assistance system, automatic LED headlights and rear lights, rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, automatic climate control and MG iSmart app connectivity.

Long Range SE models also include MG's innovative active grille shutter system which regulates air flow according to vehicle requirements. This improves aerodynamic efficiency by up to 30 per cent and can increase EV range by as much as 10 per cent.

TheMG4 EVTrophyhas a long range battery as standard and will be capable of 270 miles on a single charge.

Trophy models will be equipped with an upgraded MG Pilot system, with the inclusion of Blind Spot Detection (BSD), Lane Change Assist (LCA) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA).

Additionally, a two-tone roof, rear privacy glass, twin aero rear spoiler, leather interior with electric driver's seat, heated front seats and steering wheel, Bluetooth key, satellite navigation, 360 camera, wireless phone charging and an upgraded MG iSmart system compatible with live services are all standard.

Guy Pigounakis, commercial director at MG Motor UK, said: "Our first all-electric hatchback will offer unrivalled interior space and practicality, with a level of equipment usually expected from premium and performance EV manufacturers."

He added: "The potential of the innovative Modular Scalable Platform is considerable and is set to deliver some exciting new MGs over the coming years."
