British car company MG was founded in 1924, best known for popular sports cars such as the MGA and MGB. After decades of turbulence moving between the likes of British Leyland and the Rover Group, MG was bought out by Chinese giant SAIC Motors. With a focus on value and simplicity, it’s once again become one of the most admired brands around - and its electric cars are hugely popular.
Key highlights of MG Motor UK
MG is, of course, famous for building iconic two-seater sports cars for many decades. In its latter years as a British company it gave Rover models a sporting edge, but under Chinese ownership MG pivoted entirely.
Its range of great value small cars and family SUVs quickly built up sales, but it wasn’t until it embraced the electric future that buyers really stood up and took notice. Offering competitive models for significantly less money than established electric brands, MG has changed the game.
MG & EVs
In 2020, MG Motor UK released its very first fully electric car: the MG ZS, which was a battery-powered version of the already popular petrol-powered ZS. Offering a practical and great value compact SUV package with zero emissions, it’s proved a smash hit. Since then it’s rolled out more models that have scooped awards across the world.
Top MG Motor UK electric models
Alongside the MG ZS, which is a roomy and well-equipped affordable family offering, MG is also known for the electric MG5 and MG4. The MG5 is an unusual sight in the EV world because it’s a practical, no nonsense estate car. Its value, long range and comfort have made it a popular choice for both business and personal leasing.
The MG4 family hatchback is the latest MG Motor UK model, and despite having only been on sale for a year it’s made a big impact, winning a heap of awards.
With pricing at the same level at much smaller and lower range EVs from other brands, the MG4 also brings a dose of style and a fun driving experience to MG. No wonder it’s selling like hot cakes.
Similar brands to MG Motor UK
Few other brands come close to offering the sheer value for money of MG. However, new Chinese entrants such as GWM Ora are coming onto the scene with low-cost EVs such as the Funky Cat. Similar value-focused European brands that still deliver a dose of style include Skoda, Citroen and Hyundai.

We've made leasing an electric car easier than ever
MG’s ownership by the SAIC Motor Corporation has transformed it from a troubled British icon to a maker of affordable yet capable cars for the masses.
Its focus for the last few years has been almost solely on developing its EV range, building models that offer the space, equipment and range on a charge to compete with much more expensive European brands.
When you lease an MG electric car with GRIDSERVE, you will have the option to add a maintenance package with tax and insurance included. Plus, each time you charge your car with us, we’ll put the same amount of kWh that you’ve used back into the grid from solar. Therefore with a Net Zero Lease, you’ll be able to include the cost of all that charging in your monthly payment.
There are three fantastic MG Motor UK EV options available to lease right now: the MG4, MG5 and ZS EV. Each offers amazing value for money and are fantastic choices for those looking for a practical family car with a good range.
All of the MG Motor UK car models offer great value and exact prices are subject to change, with the MG4 being the most affordable option at the time of writing, and the MG5 the most expensive.
Yes, if you visit either the Braintree or Norwich GRIDSERVE Electric Forecourt®, you can book an electric car test drive of the MG4. It’s the ideal way to know whether you’re getting the right electric vehicle for you, so make sure to book in your visit to the UK’s only independent electric car test drive specialist.
Whether your MG Motor UK lease includes VAT within the listed price or not will depend on if it’s a personal or business leasing agreement. Personal lease deals do have VAT included in the price, while business lease deals are all excluding VAT, hence why personal deals appear cheaper.
The model with the highest range figure is the MG4, promising up to 281 miles of WLTP range, which equates to a real-world estimate of 239 miles. The ZS has a range of up to 273 miles, while the MG5’s range is up to 250 miles. The exact figures you get on a daily basis will depend on a number of everyday factors, such as the weather, driving style, battery age and charging capacity.
