Competitors of New MG4 EV

In Pakistan’s auto market, subcompact and compact crossover SUVs are plentiful, but EV options are limited. The MG 4 EV faces competition primarily from EVs, hybrids & petrol engine crossovers, including models like the DFSK SERES 3 EV, Haval H6 HEV, KIA Sorento 3.5L FWD, and Toyota Corolla Cross. It will also compete with its own sister EV, MG ZS because of its lower price and competitive features.

Final Verdict

While the MG 4 EV is a promising addition to the Pakistani EV market, it’s crucial to consider the backdrop of rising electricity rates in the country. Despite this, the MG 4 EV offers impressive specs and features, with a range of up to 435 km per charge. It is a practical choice for those planning to drive both within and between cities, though not for very long distances.
