MG Motor UK MG5 Car leasing
“Electric are just too expensive and are for company car users only …” A common statement about the electric car industry but is this actually true? While many early innovations and products were very much centred around the luxury and prestige car segments, manufacturers like MG do disprove this submission and with their budget estate, the MG5, alongside their MGZS this EV manufacturer have been supplying personal and business customers with some cheap deals.
The MG5 is very much in a segment of its own, being one of the only true estate family cars available in a pure electric format. Think of the MG5 as an alternative to combustion options like the Skoda Octavia, Vauxhall Astra and Ford Focus estate – ideal for those customers with children and pets with its 580 litres of boot space.
The MG5 emits practicality and cost-effectiveness, allowing those individual or company-based lease customers on a more restrictive budget to enjoy the true benefits of the electric lifestyle. If the UK is to hit an ambitious 2030 / 2035 electric car, and van, transition then our UK drivers need affordable propositions. Not every customer can enjoy the indulgence of Tesla, Mercedes or Audi.
What is clear to the e-car lease team is that the Chinese-owned MG are producing, from their Longbridge plant in the UK, some excellent electric options to select. Indeed, investment is so prevalent within the group, that the MG5 (which launched around May 2020) was updated from a 53 kWh 115 kW battery to a 61kWh 115 kW setup. But what does kWH and kW actually mean?
For a customer looking into a new MG5, they should be aware that kWh on an electric car is equivalent to CC on a combustion vehicle – the kilowatt-hour is effectively telling you the size of the battery. The kW on a BEV is telling you the output of the vehicle, as hp or ps would on a combustion alternative. The kilowatt is something to use when comparing different cars if the power and/or acceleration is important to you. Electric cars are far from boring and can deliver an exciting experience for those drivers chasing performance.
The 2022 revision has been a positive one for MG5, with the car now delivering around 175 miles of driving in colder climates on a full charge and some 240 miles in warmer temperatures. With many of our e-car lease customers utilising 10,000 mile per annum contracts, this translates to weekly commutes of just over 200 miles. For many customers, charging your MG5 just once per week will be sufficient.
When you do need to charge your MG5 the 6.6 kW AC onboard charger allows for 10 hour 0 – 100% charge times, with the 80 kW DC rapid charge maximum allowing for 40 minute 10 – 80% times. If there is one slightly disappointing aspect of the MG5 is that the charging speeds could be quicker – the group should have upgraded the newer model to take 11 kW AC and a minimum of 125 kW DC. Charging speed is AS important as range. For performance, the MG5 achieves 0 - 62 times of 7.7 seconds and top speeds of 115mph (via the 154 hp motor).
But what specification choices are available on the MG5? At present you have the choice of the following two options:
Leasing your new MG5 with the e-car lease team is a simple process. Whether you are looking for a stock vehicle or need a factory order vehicle, just use the MG5 deals section for personal, business and salary sacrifice customers.
