The MG5 EV has scooped a major accolade in the 2021 Business Car Awards, after being named the Best Value Car in the fleet title’s annual honours.
The MG5 EV estate, which saw the addition of a new Long Range model this summer, offers unbeatable practicality, value and low running costs for fleet operators and company car drivers.
Presenting the award, Business Car Editor Martyn Collins said: “With fleet electrification progressing ever-faster, a good value offering in this sector has particular significance. The MG5 combines family car practicality with long-range battery capacity, at a price which could open up EV motoring to a wider selection of business drivers than had previously been the case.”
Geraint Isaac, MG Motor’s Head of Fleet Sales, added: “This is a tremendous accolade for the MG5 EV, which has given us a huge boost in the fleet market thanks to its unique body style, sensational value, excellent range and attractive P11D pricing. More and more fleet users are realising that the MG5 EV is a fantastic proposition from much greater than just a cost perspective, and our EV offering is about to get even better with the imminent introduction of the new longer range MG ZS EV, which will give us another highly desirable car for business users.”
The Business Car Award is the second honour in a month for the MG5 EV, which was also voted Best Value EV by WhichEV for the second time – the standard range MG5 EV picked up the 2020 award earlier this year. The publication described the MG5 EV Long Range as the “best value EV on the market by a considerable margin.”
MG Motor UK’s year-to-date registrations were up 61.2% to the end of September 2021 and the brand remains the fastest growing mainstream car brand in the UK. The company’s overall battery electric mix of 32.7% is the highest of any manufacturer selling both internal combustion and alternative fuel models, with the MG5 EV the 7th best-selling EV in the UK.
MG currently offers six models in the UK including three plug-in cars – the MG ZS EV, the MG5 EV and MG HS Plug-in Hybrid.
