Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the MG MG5 EV. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 25 hours 7 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 15h45m 11 mph
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x29A 6.6 kW † 8h45m 21 mph
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW † 15h45m 11 mph
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 230V / 1x29A 6.6 kW † 8h45m 21 mph

† = Limited by on-board charger, vehicle cannot charge faster.

Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the MG MG5 EV.

  • Max. Power: maximum power provided by charge point
  • Avg. Power: average power provided by charge point over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%
Combined Charging System (CCS Combo 2)
Charging Point Max. Power Avg. Power Time Rate
CCS (50 kW DC) 50 kW 40 kW † 54 min 140 mph
CCS (100 kW DC) 80 kW † 60 kW † 36 min 210 mph
CCS (150 kW DC) 80 kW † 60 kW † 36 min 210 mph

† = Limited by charging capabilities of vehicle

Actual charging rates may differ from data shown due to factors like outside temperature, state of the battery and driving style.

All about the MG MG5 EV

No longer available

This electric vehicle is no longer in production and not available to buy new. The MG MG5 EV was available from November 2020 until November 2021. Financial data like price, leasing and company car tax were applicable to the final year of availability of the MG MG5 EV.

Pricing

The MG MG5 EV had a Recommend Retail Price (RRP) of £27,540 and an On The Road Price (OTR) of £27,595. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The MG MG5 EV was eligible for a Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £1,500. The OTR Price including the PICG for the MG MG5 EV is £26,095.

Drivetrain and Performance

The MG MG5 EV is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the MG MG5 EV is 115 kW (154 hp). The maximum torque is 192 lb-ft. The MG MG5 EV is front wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 7.7 seconds. The top speed is 115 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the MG MG5 EV has a total capacity of 52.5 kWh. The usable capacity is 48.8 kWh. A range of about 180 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 125 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 275 mi.

Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 6.6 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 8 hours 45 minutes. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 25 hours.

Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 80 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 60 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 40 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 125 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

The combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the MG MG5 EV is about 271 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 149 mpg in a traditional petrol car.

The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 390 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 177 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

The MG MG5 EV emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
