MG4 EV named 'Small Electric Car of the Year' WhatCar? Awards 2024

The MG4 EV has clinched two prestigious awards, being named the 'Small Electric Car of the Year' and the 'Best Electric Hot Hatch' at the 2024 What Car? Car of the Year awards. This marks its second consecutive triumph, successfully defending its title from the 2023 awards ceremony.

Praised by the What Car? team for its outstanding value proposition and diverse range of models, the MG4 EV offers options to suit various preferences. Among these are the accessible MG4 EV SE and the long-distance MG4 EV Extended Range, both contributing to the electric hatchback's recognition as the best small family car. Additionally, the high-performance XPOWER, capable of accelerating from 0-62mph in just 3.8 seconds, claimed 'Best Electric Hot Hatch'.

Steve Huntingford, editor at What Car?, commended the MG4 EV, stating: “The MG4 EV offers exceptional value without compromising on practicality. It's a versatile electric family car with commendable range and agile handling, making it a standout choice in its segment. Overall, it's undoubtedly one of the finest vehicles bearing the MG emblem.”

Continuing its winning streak, the MG4 EV has accumulated over 30 awards since its launch in autumn 2022 and secured its position as the second best-selling electric car in the UK by the end of 2023.

In addition to the MG4 EV's success, What Car? also acknowledged the MG5 EV as the 'Best Electric Estate' and the MG ZS EV as the 'Best Small Electric SUV for Value', both retaining their titles from the previous year.

David Allison, MG's Head of Product and Planning, expressed pride in the recognition, stating: “Being honoured by What Car? for two consecutive years is a remarkable achievement for the MG4 EV. In 2023, the MG4 EV range expanded to offer customers even more choices, such as the Extended Range model, providing families with exceptional practicality and over 300 miles of driving on a single charge. Winning such a significant award, which holds considerable weight among car buyers, fills us with immense pride at MG.”
