MG HS Plug-in
The MG HS Plug-in is the ultimate urban family car. Capable of driving on 100% electric power for up to 32 miles, it’s powered by a 1.5 turbocharged petrol engine and a 16.6 kWh battery which powers a 90kW electric motor. These produce a combined 254bhp and return up to 155.8mpg combined. EV mode lets you drive on electric alone, and around town you’ll use no petrol at all unless you want to. There’s a 10-speed automatic gearbox and an electric handbrake, as well as MG Pilot with adaptive cruise control, traffic jam assist, blind spot monitoring and lane keeping assist to semi-automate your journeys. Upmarket features like an electric tailgate, a panoramic roof and leather upholstery are available as standard.
EV mode uses the 90kW electric motor and 16.6 kWh battery for power, delivering up to 32 miles of range. In this mode, you won’t use any petrol, and when the battery runs low, it automatically switches to Hybrid mode.
The MG HS Plug-In supports fast charging up to 7kW, which is the most common output for home chargers. A 7kW charger will top up the battery to 100% in around 3 hours, or to 80% in around 2 and a half hours.
The MG HS Plug-In delivers a WLTP combined fuel economy figure of 155.8mpg with 43g/km of CO2. This is an impressive figure. Most people will be able to achieve over 60mpg combined every day.
In EV mode, the MG HS Plug-In is smooth and refined. It can automate aspects of your journey thanks to MG Pilot, and when you use the petrol engine, it delivers serious performance with 254bhp and 370Nm of torque.
