MG Marvel R Electric SUV Selling In Europe
Will this MG Marvel R come to Malaysia under the Berjaya Automotive Group?
MG returns to its roots with two new generation battery electric vehicles. Yes, the MG (Morris Garage) brand was once a best selling brand in England and then it just faded away until a Chinese automotive group bought over the brand and revived it in China first and now moving quickly across Asia.
PRESS RELEASE: The new and exciting MG Marvel R Electric is touted as a high-tech, luxurious ‘lifestyle’ SUV for the C-segment and the new MG5 Electric: world’s first 100 percent electric station wagon.
Both these BEVs are said to be progressive, powerful and above all, attractive (as the claim to be). While the existing MG ZS EV and MG EHS Plug-in Hybrid already impress in terms of smart pricing, functionality, standard equipment and efficiency, these new MG models raise the bar even further in terms of design and appeal.
This second-generation EV is designed according to MG’s Evolution Design language. The Marvel R Electric is characterized as an intelligent ‘Tech Style’ vehicle with modern and powerful elements as it’s communicating and interacting with its users.
The design offers attractive proportions and minimalistic designed features that enhance the appearance of a sophisticated modern and evolved vehicle.
The luxurious high-tech lifestyle C-segment SUV is 4,674 mm long, 1,919 mm wide and 1,618 mm tall. The wheelbase measures 2,800 mm and offers therefore more than enough interior space.
In addition to its attractive stance, the MG Marvel R Electric also offers a spacious and stunning interior with a 19.4 inch touchscreen and a 12.3 inch digital instrument panel.
For a new generation
The MG Marvel R Electric is a battery-electric SUV for a new generation of European motorists who highly appreciate design, luxury and performance, but also a comfortable range and fast charging capability for a smart and reasonable price.
With a range of over 400 kilometres (WLTP), the Marvel R Electric offers a great peace of mind, while drivers can count on quick charging capability at a public charging point (AC) due to the 11 kW on-board 3-phase charger.
The battery is also suitable for fast-charging (DC) to fill it up to 80 percent in just 30 minutes. Meanwhile, the climate control with an internal heat pump guarantees optimal charging performance at low temperatures.
Another striking feature of the MG Marvel R Electric is the V2L system (vehicle-to-load). This technology allows the lithium-ion battery to supply energy to an external electrical system, for example an air pump, electric scooter, a laptop or even another BEV. This technology is considered as an important innovation for the clean energy transition and last-mile solution.
Powerful Tri-Motor drive technology
The MG Marvel R Electric not only exudes power, but also lives up to it with its performance. The drive technology uses an advanced all-wheel drive system with three electric motors: one on the front axle and two on the rear.
The vehicle boasts a maximum output of 212 kW (288 ps) with a 665 Nm peak torque. This allows the SUV to accelerate from 0-50 km/h in just 1.8 seconds and from 0-100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds. The top speed is limited at 200 km/h. The Marvel R Electric will also be offered in a rear-wheel drive configuration with two electric motors.
The luggage compartment in the rear offers a volume of 357 litres. With the rear seat folded down, it can be increased to 1,396 litres. The RWD version of the Marvel R Electric also offers 150 litres of luggage space under the hood, also known as a frunk.
Furthermore, customers can count on a large number of active safety systems under the name MG Pilot, as with the MG ZS EV and MG EHS Plug-in Hybrid.
