MG5 ELECTRIC ACHIEVES 5 STAR GREEN NCAP RATING
- MG’s electric estate awarded highest Green NCAP assessment rating
- Results include Life Cycle Assessment with MG5 Electric receiving Green NCAP’s LCA Award
- Top score achieved the first time that an MG has been through the independent testing programme
The MG5 Electric has been awarded the maximum five-star rating by Green NCAP, the industry-leading European independent emissions assessment programme.
The first model from MG Motor Europe to be assessed by Green NCAP, the MG5 Electric’s performance is ranked across three core criteria – Clean Air, Energy Efficiency, and Greenhouse Gas Emissions. An overall score of 95% puts it amongst the top five models tested in 2023.
As a fully-electric model, the MG5 Electric clearly scores full marks in the exhaust tests, rated 10/10 in Clean Air tests. In terms of Energy Efficiency, the MG5 Electric was marked at 9.2/10 with three out of the four efficiency scores ‘good’ – the top ranking – with the fourth only just missing out on the top grade.
Finally, the Greenhouse Gases tests brought about a result of 9.5/10, all of which combined saw Green NCAP award the MG5 Electric its LCA Award, only the second car tested in 2023 to receive it.
This LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) rating allows drivers to compare cars’ environmental impact from ‘cradle-to-grave’, including the emissions costs in manufacturing, through its life-time usage, and finally to its end-of-life treatment. Green NCAP only awards it to the best-performing LCA-assessed models, and is intended to be a quick and clear way for car buyers to find vehicles with the lowest climate impact over its entire life cycle.
Aiden He, CEO of MG Nordic and Benelux, said: “At MG Motor Europe, we are extremely proud of the work done in electrifying our model line-up. Many of our EVs are award-winning models, but for the MG5 Electric to be recognised by Green NCAP proves the lengths that we are going to in terms of engineering efficiency and eco-consciousness into our vehicles.
“Electric cars are an area of strength for MG Motor Europe, and for independent assessors to ratify our efforts is great news for both us and our customers.”
The MG5 Electric Long Range is the second-generation of the popular fully-electric estate, which offers a maximum range of 400 km (WLTP) on a charge. Thanks to Green NCAP’s 5 Star rating and LCA Award, it represents the best possible option for drivers looking in its class, who are looking to add greater environmental awareness and sustainability to their lives.
Green NCAP is an independent initiative which promotes the development of cars that are clean, energy efficient, and cause as little harm to the environment as possible. Green NCAP uses a broad range of tests to address flaws in approval tests and, through consumer information, rewards those manufacturers whose vehicles go beyond the minimum requirements and offer excellent, robust, real-world performance.
