An electric car has won the UK Car of the Year award for 2023, with judges calling the vehicle “perfect” and hailing it as being affordable.
The MG4 has been crowned the UK Car of the Year 2023, in another major triumph for electric vehicles. However, unlike 2022 when the top four cars were battery-powered, the MG’s closest competition came from internal combustion engined models at either end of the performance spectrum.
The five-door hatchback comes with an impressive 281 miles of electric range in the standard model or 360 miles (579km) with the Long Range MG4.
As with all new cars, the MG4 comes with a range of features to make the motoring experience easier and smoother.
The Trophy Long Range model comes with a 360 parking camera, a 10.25” colour touchscreen and iSMART app connectivity.
Battery life is often cited as an issue for drivers, but the MG can charge from 10 to 80 percent in as little as 35 minutes, and the car starts from as little as £26,995.
The budget seven-seat Dacia Jogger was a deserved runner-up, while third place outright went to Toyota’s GR86, which claimed the Best Coupé category in this year’s awards.
The Dacia Jogger was hailed as prioritising cost-conscious motoring, starting at a cost-effective £17,175.
