MG Motor has launched its first plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) in the Middle East.
The company says the 2024 MG HS PHEV presents “a low carbon emission alternative for customers in the region, the dynamic SUV is the perfect union of efficiency and performance.”
Powered by MG’s 1.5-litre high efficiency turbo engine, the MG HS PHEV can cover over 64 km on its 16.6 KW electric motor alone, with the combined output of 258 horsepower helping it to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in just 6.9 seconds. It can develop maximum torque of 480Nm, is capable of hitting a top speed of 190 km/h, and is equipped with paddle shift gear change.
The MG HS PHEV consumes only 1.8 litres per 100 kilometres.
“This remarkable fuel consumption ensures that drivers can go farther on less fuel, reducing their overall carbon footprint. With a rating of 4.3 grams per kilometre according to the WLTP standard, this plug-in hybrid vehicle significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions compared to conventional internal combustion engine cars,” says MG Motor.
When it comes to charging, the 2024 MG HS PHEV offers convenient options for its electric motor. The charging time for a full charge is approximately 4.5 hours, allowing users to easily replenish the battery overnight or during the day. For those in need of a quick top-up, a fast charge can provide 80% battery capacity in just 35 minutes, making it suitable for on-the-go charging needs.
Building on the success of the sporty SUV, the arrival of the new 2024 MG HS PHEV and 2024 MG HS with 2.0L Turbo conventional internal combustion engine is yet another major step forward in MG Motor’s offerings, as the brand continues to expand options for car buyers across the region with its highly advanced and well-equipped range of sedans and SUVs, added MG Motor
It joins the recently launched MG ONE, and all-new MG RX5 models in the British-born automotive brand’s rapidly expanding Middle East line-up.
“The launch of our first plug-in hybrid is the next step in the MG Middle East journey as we bring our expertise with new energy vehicles to our customers while still providing the option of a conventional combustion engine,” said Tom Lee, Managing Director of MG Motor Middle East.
As one of the manufactures of one of the best-selling NEV in the world, MG is bringing a wealth of experience to the region. With the MG HS PHEV, its sporty feel has not been compromised, where performance and comfort are balanced for our customers to get more from every journey.”
