5 GREEN NCAP STARS AWARDED TO THE MG5. The MG5 Electric has received the top five-star rating from Green NCAP. NCAP is the industry’s leading independent European emissions assessment programme. Quite a feat. In addition, Green NCAP has awarded it the LCA award for its low impact throughout its life cycle. Only the second car tested in 2023 to receive it. This recognition confirms MG’s efforts to design and manufacture a sustainable car. Which has already made history by becoming the first electric car with a family body.
The first MG model evaluated by Green NCAP has obtained the highest score based on three criteria: clean air, energy efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions with an overall score of 95%. The MG5 Electric is among the top five models tested in 2023. The MG5 Electric has obtained the highest score in exhaust gas tests. With a score of 10 out of 10 in Clean Air tests. In terms of energy efficiency, it obtained a score of 9.2/10, with three of the four efficiency scores as “good”, the highest rating. The fourth fell just short of the highest rating. Finally, the Greenhouse Gas tests gave a result of 9.5/10.
5 GREEN NCAP STARS AWARDED TO THE MG5. Green NCAP highlighted that the consumption values measured in the tests are within the expected range, the light weight of the MG5 and its extraordinary charging efficiency, 92%, which helps reduce the car’s total consumption and save costs for the consumer.
The LCA classification allows drivers to compare the environmental impact of cars throughout their life cycle. From the emissions produced in their manufacturing, to those generated throughout their use throughout their useful life. Also their recycling when it ends. Green NCAP only awards it to the models with the best results in their life cycle analysis. It is intended to be a quick and clear way for car buyers to find the vehicles with the lowest overall climate impact.
Pedro García, vice president of MG for Spain and Portugal, said. “We are very proud of the work carried out to electrify our model range. Having an independent body like Green NCAP ratify our efforts is great news for us and our clients. The scores and awards given demonstrate how far we are coming in terms of engineering efficiency and ecological awareness in our vehicles. Without a doubt, the MG5 is the best option for families looking for mobility. With the lowest environmental impact.”
MG5 Electric: the world’s first electric family car.
The MG5 Electric is the world’s first 100% electric estate car (SW). This model combines a design with attractive proportions and minimalist features with the functional character of a family car. The MG5 Electric offers a spacious interior for the family and great cargo capacity, with a 578-litre boot, which can be expanded to 1,456 liters with the rear seats folded down. In addition, it can tow up to 500 kg, withstand a maximum trailer ball weight of 50 kg and a roof load of 75 kg. In line with the functional character of a family car, this model is suitable for carrying a bicycle rack and a roof box.
True to the brand’s modern and digital style, inside there is a 10.25 IPS HD floating screen and a digital instrumentation with a 7-inch screen.
The MG5’s electric motor delivers a power of 135 kW (184 HP) and 280 Nm of torque. Allowing it to reach a maximum speed of 185 km/h and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.7 seconds. Thanks to its low consumption and a powerful 50.3 kWh battery, the MG5 Electric offers a range of more than 400 kilometers (WLTP). This model offers fast charging at a public (AC) charging point thanks to the on-board 11 kW three-phase charger. In addition, it supports fast charging (CC) that allows you to charge your battery up to 80% of its capacity in just 30 minutes.
The MG5 Electric is marketed in Spain in two versions: Comfort (from 25,280 euros) and Luxury (from 28,780 euros).
5 GREEN NCAP STARS AWARDED TO THE MG5 About Green NCAP.
Green NCAP is an independent initiative that promotes the development of clean, energy-efficient cars that cause the least possible damage to the environment. Its objective is to improve the quality of the air we breathe. To minimize the use of resources used in passenger transport and reduce global warming.
Green NCAP uses a wide range of tests to address the deficiencies in homologation testing. Through consumer information, rewards those manufacturers whose vehicles go beyond the minimum requirements and deliver excellent, solid and real performance. Regulatory testing is a good starting point; Green NCAP tests are an addition and complement to these requirements.
