A photo of a pair of MG4 and MG Marvel R at a showroom in Ho Chi Minh City has recently been making waves on social networks. At a glance, this time around the color scheme of both the cars is similar to the model that will appear at the Vietnam Motor Show (VMS) in 2022.
Although it is not possible to confirm that these are the same cars that appeared in VMS 2022, but according to information received from sales consultants, both these cars are used only for testing and display in the showroom.
The person also added that the launch of both the cars is timed to coincide with the launch of the MG HS 2023 model, which is around September or October.
Currently, consultants are also starting to receive early deposits for the MG4 and MG Marvel R. Earlier, some MG dealer sales consultants also revealed that the MG4 electric car model may return to Vietnam by the end of this year. However, this information has not been confirmed by MG.
If sold in the Vietnamese market, the MG4 will compete with the Vinfast VF6 by using a dedicated chassis for electric vehicles and a 110mm ultra-thin battery placed neatly under the floor of the car. The standard version is equipped with a 51 kWh battery and 168 hp electric motor for a range of 350 km, rear-wheel drive.
The cabin is equipped with a 2-spoke steering wheel placed in front of a small digital dashboard, with a 10-inch tablet-shaped central touch screen on the right that supports Apple CarPlay. Below the upper screen is a wireless phone charger, electronic handbrake, gearshift knob, cup holder and a storage compartment below – Photo: Le Hoang
Meanwhile, the MG Marvel R is a VF7 horizontal electric SUV, which focuses on modern design and technology. The car on display in Vietnam belongs to the most advanced version of the MG Marvel R Performance.
The MG Marvel R is equipped with a 70 kWh battery, which can be fully charged from 5% – 80% in just 43 minutes on fast charging. According to WLTP standards, once full charge can travel up to 402 km.
