MG has revealed a new teaser video of an upcoming electric car that’s due before the end of the year. 

Rumoured to be called the MG4, the model will slot between the low-cost MG3 supermini and electric MG5 estate car in the brand’s line-up. The video doesn’t give away very much, but showcases that the model is set to adopt a different design language to the firm’s current range. 

This includes a greater focus on style, with the video revealing the model’s sleek design and intricate detailing – not least the large horizontal LED rear lights which extend across much of the rear of the car. Smart 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels are fitted too, while a large panoramic glass roof appears to be fitted.


One key thing to note, though, is that the MG4 looks set to be more of a conventional hatchback, bucking the trend for manufacturers to create battery-powered SUVs instead. 

MG has revealed few details about the upcoming model, though has confirmed that it will be ‘100 per cent electric’ and has been developed ‘with the European consumer in mind’. The Chinese car brand has also confirmed it measures 4.3m in length, making it a similar size to the Volkswagen ID.3 and Citroen e-C4

MG already has an extensive range of electrified models, including its ZS EV crossover, MG5 EV estate and plug-in hybrid HS SUV. These versions already account for a large chunk of the firm’s sales, and that’s only set to continue as its range of electric models grows.
