All Electric MG4 Hot Hatch is on it’s way Down Under

Checkout my latest YT EV Video looking at the specifications and details on the new MG4 model coming to Australia. I go through the key things EV buyers need to know to decide if this 100% battery electric car is the one for them. With just under 5,000 selling in Europe in Jan 2023 and being the 2nd best selling 100% battery electric EV in the UK in February 2023 this is one VERY POPULAR EV!

MG4 – on it’s way Down Under. MG Australia has decided on the Top of range model with larger/ longer range, NMC battery for this model.
