MG CONFIRMS THRILLING MG4 XPOWER
MG Motor Ireland are excited to announce official specifications of its new high-performance all-electric hatchback, confirming the new MG4 EV XPower will be its most powerful production car when it debuts later this year.
The new range-topping MG4 XPower firmly underlines the company’s Get More philosophy with an EV performance car offering drivers breath-taking power and dynamics at an extremely competitive price.
The new XPower model features a highly anticipated dual motor powertrain delivering 435PS and up to 600Nm of torque, firmly positioning the latest MG4 model alongside the most potent high-performance hatchbacks on the market.
Capable of 0-62mph in 3.8 seconds, XPower’s electrifying performance contrasts with a series of understated exterior design revisions, with the new model expected to fly under the radar in comparison to the usual high-powered hatchback offerings.
The subtle exterior design and specification enhancements include orange ‘XPower’ brake calipers, a two-tone black roof, new 18’’ alloy wheels and polished trim accents, alongside an exclusive new Racing Green colour option.
The MG4 XPower will arrive in Ireland later this year and promises to be one of the most exciting new electric cars of 2023, marking a new milestone in MG’s highly anticipated return to the performance car market.
The most powerful MG yet
Underpinned by the MG4’s Modular Scalable Platform (MSP), the XPower is equipped with an all-new dual motor configuration that delivers up to 320kW and 435PS to all four wheels, via front (150kW) and rear (170kW) electric motors.
As well as offering hyper hatch-rivalling performance in a straight line, the enhanced drivetrain features sophisticated new technological upgrades to effectively distribute power and maximise driver engagement while cornering.
An all-new Dynamic Cornering Control System will be available for the first time on an MG, featuring a locking electronic differential and Intelligent Motor Control to allow torque vectoring between all four wheels, generating maximum traction and outstanding composure in a wide range of driving conditions.
A comprehensive series of suspension upgrades have been completed, featuring recalibrated spring and damper tuning, stiffer anti-roll bars and sharper steering. Overall suspension stiffness has been increased by up to 25%, meaning the MG4 XPower will build upon the acclaimed handling characteristics of the current MG4 models.
MG’s Engineering Team has also recalibrated the regenerative braking software to allow one pedal driving in suitable driving situations.
Increased stopping power reduces the MG4 XPower’s 62-0mph stopping distance to just 33.9metres, generated via uprated, ventilated 345mm discs on all four corners, with new premium Bridgestone Turanza tyres offering excellent levels of grip without compromising rolling efficiency.
Underlining the new model’s performance credentials, a new launch control feature allows drivers to experience XPower in its ultimate form by sprinting from 0-62mph in just 3.8 seconds.
