MG ZS EV vs. MG Marvel R Electric: all-electric SUVs to suit your needs
Thanks to the unsurpassed combination of excellent features and smart pricing, the MG ZS EV has quickly entered the top-5 of best-selling electric cars in several European countries. There is also a striking amount of interest from private individuals. People who buy a car with their own money and therefore make a very well-considered choice.
Then the MG EHS Plug-in Hybrid was added to the range. This larger SUV uses pioneering plug-in hybrid technology that combines low consumption and emission levels with optimal driving pleasure. The plug-in hybrid SUV facilitates sustainable driving without having to worry too much about the range.
Now, MG opens its next chapter with the upcoming launch of the Marvel R Electric. This is MG’s all-new second generation all-electric SUV. This top-of-the-line model is a typical ‘lifestyle’ SUV. It responds more to the wishes of motorists who place higher demands on appearance, luxury and technology.
Growing offer for different needs
MG’s clear mission is to make electric mobility accessible to drivers who are young at heart and ready to embrace a new electric lifestyle. Offering smart, practical, safe and technologically advanced cars in different segment for different needs.
With the MG Marvel R Electric, MG offers a second model in the so-called C-SUV segment, in addition to the MG EHS Plug-in Hybrid. With a length of 4,674 mm and its wheelbase of 2,800 mm, the Marvel R Electric is noticeably larger compared with the MG ZS EV, perfect for those who value a spacious interior with generous seating.
The MG Marvel R Electric also responds to the wishes of motorists who place higher demands on appearance, luxury and technology. Apart from its striking and progressive exterior design, it also offers a digital cockpit with an amazing 19.4” floating touchscreen.
The MG ZS EV is 4,314 mm long, which makes it part of the smaller B-SUV segment. Despite the more compact outer dimensions, however, the ZS EV offers an impressively practical interior. It has a spacious luggage compartment of at least 448 litres, with which the model meets the more practical motorist.
With these two SUVs, MG is also responding to the diverse needs of European drivers in terms of performance and range. The MG ZS EV combines attractive, smart pricing with appealing performance thanks to the highly efficient 105 kW (143 ps) electric motor and a range of 263 kilometres (WLTP).
The Marvel R will appeal to more demanding motorists with its impressive powertrain and range of more than 400 kilometres. You can choose from the Tri-Motor drivetrain – with three electric motors, permanent all-wheel drive and a maximum power of 212 kW (288 hp) – and a rear-wheel drive version with two electric motors. MG announces the final specifications of both configurations at a later stage.
The MG ZS EV and MG Marvel R Electric are both suitable for fast-charging, which charges the battery to 80% in about 30 minutes.
MG Pilot for optimum safety
Despite the fact that the MG Marvel R Electric is a larger car with greater performance compared to the MG ZS EV, they hardly differ in terms of standard equipment. This level is surprisingly extensive in both models. MG lives up to its promise to make pleasant and comfortable electric driving accessible to the general public. The same goes for safety. Partly due to the extensive range of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) under the name MG Pilot, the MG ZS EV was the first ever all-electric SUV in the B-segment to achieve the maximum of five stars in the Euro NCAP crash tests. How about that?
The new MG Marvel R Electric takes yet another step forward in terms of safety. It has even more MG Pilot systems than the other MG models, ZS EV and EHS Plug-in Hybrid. The Marvel R Electric offers two additional new safety features: ELK (emergency lane keeping) and DWS (drowsiness warning system).
Whatever taste and preferences you have, MG has an electric car to suit you. And there’s more to come, like the MG5 Electric, the world’s first all-electric station wagon.
The MG ZS EV is immediately available in Europe, with a starting price of € 30.000,-.
The MG Marvel R Electric will be introduced to the European market from June. The luxurious, progressive and powerful MG Marvel R Electric is in a higher price range than the MG ZS EV. Its starting price is yet unknown. Stay tuned for more information soon!
