New MG EHS Plug-in Hybrid well received by European media: “In many ways a sensational car”

With the new MG EHS Plug-in Hybrid, MG launched its second model in mainland Europe. Given the success of the MG ZS EV, it’s a car that the media is looking forward to with great interest. But what is the first impression of the European media on the MG EHS Plug-in Hybrid? We have listed a number of reports from international media. See for yourself!

Auto Motor und Sport

“If you’ve been testing cars for years, you always come to a point where you think nothing can really surprise you anymore. And then comes the MG EHS Plug-in Hybrid… The EHS doesn’t look cheap from the outside, and certainly not on the inside. It also features a wealth of assistance systems. In addition, the steering is pleasantly tight and easy to dose, while the chassis brilliantly manages the balance between comfort and cornering competence. Ultimately, the biggest surprise is the price. It’s a car full of technology, with an attractive design, clean craftsmanship and an extensive standard equipment. And with ‘extensive’, we really mean extensive.”


“The dimensions already reveal that MG’s latest model scores excellently in terms of space. Also, we can reassure anyone who immediately gets cold sweats when it comes to safety with a Chinese-made car. The regular petrol versions have already managed to put five NCAP stars after their name, which also applies to the MG EHS Plug-in Hybrid.”


“The MG EHS Plug-in Hybrid is around 10,000 euros cheaper than its distant relative from Wolfsburg – the Volkswagen Tiguan – and not much worse. Because not only the design is tasteful, pleasing and just as little polarizing as that of the Tiguan, but also because the interior is miles away from the plastic dreariness of earlier China bargains. Unlike other China hits from the first wave, MG cars are no laughing stock. But if you make fun of this newcomer, the laughter might get stuck in your throat.”


“MG is here to stay!, said Matt Lei, the CEO of MG Motor Europe. This can be taken absolutely seriously, as the Anglo-Chinese car brand has shown all its endurance with its commitment to Great Britain. In addition, the parent company SAIC is a major player in the automotive industry. Also, the MG EHS Plug-in Hybrid features a neat cockpit with large displays behind the steering wheel and in the centre of the dashboard.”


“The new MG EHS Plug-in Hybird is taking the market by storm with a gun price and a powerful engine. Also, the spacious and luxurious on-board look and feel are further amplified by the panoramic sun roof measuring more than one square meter, and the ambient interior lighting with a choice of 64 colors. Rear passengers benefit from an adjustable seat back, double air vents, usb ports and a fold-out armrest. What is left for European manufacturers?”


“The MG EHS Plug-in Hybrid is ready to go as the market warms up for plug-in hybrid SUVs. The model uses proven drive technology with an advanced transmission. Thanks to the clever layout of the electric drive systems, the MG EHS Plug-in Hybrid is leading with its leg and shoulder room in the rear. It also received five stars in Euro NCAP safety testing. The price is quite competitive when you take into account what you get in terms of equipment, safety and performance.”


“The new SUV has been given the charming name EHS and matches the size of the Ford Kuga and Citroën C5 Aircross. It is spacious and also powerful. And there’s another great purchase argument: MG gives a 7-year/150,000 km warranty on the new MG EHS Plug-in Hybrid. This means that the Chinese car manufacturer settles with perceived quality of the cars.”


“The MG EHS Plug-in Hybrid is an SUV with a very attractive and modern design. The interior offers an orderly distribution and gives priority to a more elegant image, choosing atmospheres in red or black. The model also offers a extensive standard equipment that hardly leaves any options.”


“The new MG EHS Plug-in Hybrid is in a higher segment than the MG ZS EV. And thanks to the intelligent arrangement of the electric unit, the SUV offers plenty of leg and shoulder room in the rear of the cabin. At the same time, with 448 litres, the car offers quite a large loading capacity.”

Corriere della Sera

“MG offers high quality cars at affordable prices, thanks in part to the partnership of MG’s moderation company SAIC Motor with Volkswagen. SAIC has been producing Volkswagens for the Chinese market for a long time. In the case of the new MG EHS Plug-in Hybrid, MG promises the best value for money in its segment.”


“The MG EHS is in many ways a sensational car with a rarely seen, attractive price-equipment ratio. Even when you look at the build quality, we have to give the Chinese manufacturer a huge compliment. All sheet parts are nicely aligned, the doors close precisely and there are fine sealing strips everywhere. We’re very surprised by the build quality and choice of materials in the cabin as well. Okay, we’ve seen better too, but certainly not in this price range.”
