Video: new MG Marvel R Electric arrives in port of Zeebrugge
The MG Marvel R Electric is the brand’s all-new flagship SUV, fitted for European motorists who appreciate design, technology and performance. The largest and most luxurious model in MG’s portfolio offers a spacious interior with great attention to refinement, quality and technology.
Two powertrain options
The Marvel R Electric will be available in a choice of three trim levels (Comfort, Luxury and Performance). The Comfort and Luxury both have rear-wheel drive with two electric motors, a system output of 132 kW (180 ps) and 410 Nm of torque. The Performance version adds an electric motor to the front axle and offers permanent all-wheel drive. In this case, system output and peak torque are set at 212 kW (288 ps) and 665 Nm.
All versions of the Marvel R Electric are equipped with a 70 kWh battery, with which the Comfort and Luxury versions offer a range of 402 kilometres (WLTP). The range of the more powerful Performance is set at 370 kilometres (WLTP). Very useful in everyday life is the standard 11 kW 3-phase on-board charger for fast AC charging. The battery is also suitable for fast charging (DC) which charges the battery to 80% in approximately 40 minutes.
Packed with high-tech features
The MG Marvel R Electric is already packed as standard with all the features that every buyer would love to have. Particularly striking is the 19.4” central touchscreen to operate the all-new MG iSMART connectivity system with an extensive range of (online) functions and connection through a smartphone app, with which various functions can be controlled remotely.
The standard equipment also includes a comprehensive range of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), a heat pump that can heat or cool the battery (and the interior) to ensure optimum charging performance in all circumstances and a so-called V2L (vehicle-to-load) system. This allows the battery to supply energy to an external electrical system, for example an air pump, electric scooter, a laptop or even another BEV.
The new MG Marvel R Electric will be available in the European MG Brand Stores from mid-October, with a price range from € 40,000 to € 50,000 (including VAT). Naturally, prices may vary slightly from market to market. Stay tuned for more details on the MG Marvel R Electric to be released soon.
