MG4 Essence 64 and Long Range 77 pricing and models
The MG4 line-up comprises the $38,990 Excite 51, the $44,990 Excite 64, the $47,990 Essence 64 and the $55,990 Essence 77 Long Range (national RRP plus on-road costs).
That pricing range means the MG4 lines up against everything from a GWM Ora to a Tesla Model 3.
All MG4 prices are plus on-road costs, but don’t take into account subsidies and rebates available to EVs. Excite and Essence are trim levels and the numbers are references to battery size measured in kilowatt hours (kWh).
Features Essence shares with Excite include a 10.25-inch infotainment touchscreen, a 7.0-inch digital instrument cluster that sits behind the steering wheel, cabled Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connection, DAB and FM radio bands, single zone climate control, keyless entry and start/stop, and a 60/40 split-fold rear seat.
Essence exclusives include 18-inch alloys (17-inch alloys for Excite) and some body kit styling including a two-piece rear wing, satellite-navigation, a wireless charging pad (from which the phone can exit when accelerating), web-based services such as weather forecasting, front seat and steering wheel heating, driver’s seat power adjust and faux leather (rather than fabric) seat trim.
The Essence gets a six speaker audio, which is hardly generous. But that’s better than the four speakers the Excite makes do with. In all MG4s there are USB-A and a USB-C points up-front and a solitary USB-C in the rear.
The MG4 and its battery pack come with a seven year/unlimited km warranty. Service intervals are a lengthy 40,000km/24 months and are currently capped at $2702 over 200,000km and 10 years.
