MG4 Electric XPOWER will be the most powerful production MG ever

  • Thrilling new dual motor MG4 Electric XPOWER available to order from summer 2023, with first public debut at the 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed
  • The range-topping 320 kW will be the most powerful production MG ever, capable of 0-100 km/h in 3.8 seconds

MG Motor has revealed the official specification of its new high-performance all-electric hatchback, confirming the new MG4 Electric XPOWER will be its most powerful production car yet.

The new XPOWER model features a highly anticipated dual motor powertrain delivering 320 kW and up to 600 Nm of torque, firmly positioning the latest MG4 model alongside the most potent high-performance hatchbacks on the market.

Capable of 0-100 km/h in 3.8 seconds, the 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 Hunter Green colour option.

The MG4 Electric XPOWER is available to order from summer 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 Electric 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 situations.

Increased stopping power reduces the MG4 XPOWER’s 100km/h-0 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 0-100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds.
