THE first Plug-In Hybrid from MG Motor is headed to Australia, with the MG HS PHEV confirmed to reach dealerships in March. The new model will provide buyers with the enjoyment of remarkable performance and technology, with low-emission practicality.
In advance of its launch, the marque has revealed that the MG HS Plug-In Hybrid has a top speed of 190km/h and dynamic acceleration, which achieves 0-100km in 6.9 seconds.
Further, the total output of the electric motor and turbo combustion engine combined provides an impressive 1.7-litres/100km consumption and 39g/km CO2 emissions.
MG is leading the charge to make electric and hybrid vehicles mainstream in Australia, with the Plug-In Hybrid joining the MG ZS EV, their first all-electric model, which arrived in Australia in November 2020.
“Launching our first Plug-In Hybrid will be a pivotal moment for MG, as we move towards our goal of providing our customers with greater choice, particularly in the New Energy arena,” MG Motor ANZ CEO Peter Ciao said.
“As a global leader in electrification, we’re excited at the prospect of bringing this new hybrid model to the market to become a major part of the consideration set in New Energy adoption.”
New Energy (a range of propulsion technologies that includes hybrids) represents a new chapter for MG.
As a technology leader and one of the largest suppliers of electric and hybrid vehicles globally, the brand is committed to providing every Australian with more choice.
Further information on the new low-emission Plug-In Hybrid or PHEV for short, including pricing and full specifications, will be revealed at the model’s launch in March 2021.
