MG4 UK Car of the Year

Electric MG4 takes UK Car of the Year award

The all-electric MG4 has been crowned as the 2023 UK Car of the Year, seeing off some fierce internal combustion engined-competition in the form of the Dacia Jogger and Toyota GR86.

The MG4 was praised for its affordability, practicality and driving range and took the top prize having already won the Best Family Car category. The Kia Niro, available in hybrid, Plug-in hybrid and fully-electric forms, had won the Best Crossover award but didn’t feature on the final podium (despite getting our vote as EVs Unplugged sits on the UK Car of the Year jury).

“The MG4 proves that electric cars can be affordable, practical and appeal to all areas of the automotive market,” said John Challen, director of the UK Car of the Year Awards. “Fully charged, it offers more than enough miles for most journeys, while the design and driving dynamics tick two other important boxes for consumers. A deserved winner for the electric future.”

Chris Evans, head of sales at heycar UK – sponsor of the UK Car of the Year Awards – said: “Congratulations to MG for its very deserved win with the fantastic MG4. With an impressive range of up to 281 miles, coupled with striking styling and design, MG has struck an excellent balance of desirability, practicality and performance. With consumers facing economic pressures more than ever before, it also proves that EV ownership doesn’t have to be prohibitive. The MG4 represents fantastic value for money.”
