The MG MG5 EV now delivers a longer range

There's a new longer-range model for the contract hire MG MG5 EV line-up and it's an impressive 250-mile offering.

However, this extends to 334 miles when the MG5 is used solely for driving around town, thanks to the regenerative braking system.

The range comes from a 61.1kWh battery that can be recharged to 80% of its capacity in 61 minutes.

Using a 100kWh rapid charger, this time drops to 40 minutes and charging overnight will take 9.5 hours when using a home charger.

This new MG5 EV model is joining what has become a popular EV choice after its debut in October last year.

MG MG5 EV car lease

The standard MG MG5 EV car lease model offers a range of 214 miles, and the carmaker says that this model will continue to be sold.

The MG5 offers practicality and flexibility in what is a stylish estate car.

It also offers impressive driving dynamics and for the money, it's one of the best EV cars currently available.

Drivers interested in boosting their environmental credentials can also look at the MG ZS which is an electric car, and the MG HS which is a plug-in hybrid.

Indeed, MG is now the UK's fourth most popular brand for electric vehicles and buyers are lining up.

Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) rate for the MG5 EV

The Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) rate for the MG5 EV is 1% for the current tax year, and prices start at £26,495.

MG says that the MG5 is ideal for drivers racking up lots of miles and those who want to enjoy driving efficiencies.

The car also sits lower than most EV rivals and the battery pack is water-cooled.

The low centre of gravity that comes with placing the battery pack underneath the car delivers improved aerodynamics and better handling.

The 115kW motor produces 156 PS and delivers a 0 to 62 mph sprint time of just over seven seconds.

The car's top speed is 115 mph, and the power is delivered to the front wheels.

The MG5 car lease range

As a practical choice, there's a lot to like about the MG5 car lease range with a wide tailgate and a boot size of 464 litres - this expands to 1,456 litres when the rear seats are folded flat.

There's also a transferable seven-year manufacturer's warranty to bring peace of mind, and there's a decent list of equipment too.

Drivers get to enjoy an 8-inch colour display that is smartphone compatible, plus there's a range of driver assistance systems including adaptive cruise control and electric parking brake.

Standard kit includes air-conditioning, a seven-inch driver information display and a leather steering wheel.

There are rear parking sensors and three driving modes and 'follow-me-home' headlights.

The MG MG5 EV car lease range has proved to be popular because it offers a value for money winning combination of zero emissions and lots of equipment.
