Forget range anxiety with the spacious MG5 EV

Looking for that extra legroom? The all-new MG5 EV is as spacious as it is efficient.

Up until this point, electric cars have traditionally featured a compact chassis to increase efficiency, and to maximise driving range. Thanks to the MG5 EV, that’s all changed.

The first thing that catches your eye when you see the MG5 EV is its generous size. Compared to the award-winning Ioniq Electric, the MG5 gives you over 15% more space so you can sit more relaxed and provide a truly comfortable journey.

When it comes to boot space for those all-important airport trips, the MG5 EV features an already impressive 464 litres, which rises to 1,456 litres if you fold down the rear seats. This extra space is particularly useful if you do package deliveries, as you’ll be able to pick up dozens of parcels at once and make better use of your work hours.

The MG5 EV’s 214-mile combined range is a market-leading figure for its price bracket. Unlike traditional cars, EVs perform better in the city, so driving rideshare in London you’ll be able to squeeze up to 276 miles out of a single charge. That means it’s enough to charge your MG5 every other night.

Zap out your redundant expenses

Not only is it cheaper to charge and service an electric car, but on-demand drivers in London can save up to £15 per day on the Congestion Charge. That’s compared to a traditional hybrid or a modern combustion engine, but the ULEZ charge exemption saves you a further £12.50, a daily fee charged in Central London for older, more polluting cars.

Another way an EV saves you money is by accessing Uber’s Clean Air Fund, which subsidises the cost of owning an electric PCO car. In a nutshell, driving an electric car for Uber means 15p/mile more earnings after each ride.
