MG4 hits electric form with nine award wins

  • Critically acclaimed all-electric MG hatchback ends 2022 with a series of major award wins – including three overall Car of the Year titles
  • Leading motoring experts from carwow, DrivingElectric, Scottish Car of the Year and Top Gear put MG4 on the podium

The all-electric MG4 is ending its debut year on a high, receiving awards from some of the UK’s leading motoring experts recognising its generous equipment levels, practicality, dynamic handling and for also being the best-value EV currently on sale.

The MG4 secured Bargain of the Year at the 2022 Top Gear Awards, with the team praising the engaging driving experience on offer - noting that “cornering is more involving than in pretty well any other compact EV”.

The compact EV received a double win from the DrivingElectric team, who made it their Best Value Electric Car and overall Car of the Year. The MG4 was also a winner in the public polls, being voted Reader’s Favourite Electric Car of 2023 by DrivingElectric’s audience.

There was a hat trick from the electric car experts at, with the MG4 landing Best Small Family CarBest Value Car and Overall Car of the Year.

The MG4 was also a category winner at the prestigious The Scottish Car of the Year Awards. The Association of Scottish Motoring Writers (ASMW) named the MG4 as their Best EV under £40,000.  Jack McKeown, President of the ASMW, explained:

“What delighted us about the MG4 is that it does the basics so well. It’s one of the cheapest electric cars in the UK but has a range of up to 281 miles. It looks good and drives nicely as well. The MG4 is proof that EVs can be cheap to buy and own as well.”

Completing a positive 2022 for the MG4, the reviewers at carwow named the MG4 as Car of the Year. Mat Watson, Chief Content Officer for carwow commented:

“The MG4 is the best car I’ve driven all year. It looks great on the outside, MG has made huge strides with interior and infotainment quality and it’s a bargain compared with some electric vehicles from mainstream brands. It’s easily one of the best electric cars on sale right now.”

The MG4 range starts at £25,995, with all models complete with a comprehensive 7-year warranty and a recently awarded five-star Euro NCAP safety rating.
