It has recently been announced that the now Chinese-owned car manufacturer, MG will begin production of the new electric MG Marvel R Electric SUV. This new SUV has been described in one news release as a “high-tech, luxurious ‘lifestyle’ SUV for the C-segment” The launch is planned to take place in May 2021.
Concept car for 2021
This car actually looks like a concept car, the design gives the impression of a car of the future, which hasn’t even been developed yet, apart from an artist’s impression. It really looks that sleek and futuristic. From the European drivers’ point of view, this SUV car offers everything, it’s smart, practical, extremely high-tech, and safe. Unless a major recall occurs, there’s no way this car will flop. The future I predict will be bright for MG if they can make the car affordable and reliable.
The Marvel R has been classified as a second-generation EV for MG, which is similar in size to the Honda CR-V. The interior design matches the exterior, with its sleekness and ultra-modern stylish layout. The dashboard has several screens and one master 19.4 -inch portrait touchscreen that controls more or less everything except for gear changing. Of course, the car is fully compatible with iPhone and Android smartphones, which are housed in a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel.
The SUV comes as an all-wheel-drive with a total of three electric motors, one for the front and two for the rear-drive. The maximum output the batteries generate is 288 PS, (212 kW) with a peak torque of 665 Nm. The 0–50 km/h is a staggering 1.8 seconds and 0–100 km/h has been clocked at an amazing 4.9 seconds.
Probably the most important factor for all-electric vehicles is the range. The Marvel R has a maximum range of 400 km and can be refilled at public charging stations. Other impressive features include a massive luggage compartment of 357 litres, which can increase to 1,396 litres when the rear seats are folded down. For the practical side, the Marvel R tows up to 750 kg in weight, which is ideal for a fair size caravan or trailer.
We advise you to wait
Unless you have a few bob burning a hole in your pocket, the MG Marvel R SUV won’t come cheap at launch but if you’re patient and looking to make a more modest purchase, it could be a good idea to consider opting for a used MG in around a year or so. In the meantime, if you are looking for a newer used car, used SUV, or used van, then it would be a good investment to finance a used vehicle now and Best Price Car Sales will then buy it back and give you the ability to buy electric used cars like the Marvel R electric SUV and a much lower price too.
