MG unveils the first images of the MG4, which will be called “Mulan” in China. It is expected in 2023 in our regions.
A few months ago, the British manufacturer, a subsidiary of the Chinese group SAIC, published teaser images, announcing the arrival of a future 100% electric compact: the MG4. The model was to be unveiled at the Beijing Motor Show, but this was postponed due to Covid.
Today, it is in China that the first official images of the model are revealed on social networks, which will bear another name in the Middle Kingdom. Indeed, there is a Chinese superstition which implies that the number “4” brings bad luck: indeed, its pronunciation is close to the word “death”, and the Chinese have taken the habit of never using this number, unlike the number ” 8” which brings good luck.

MG4: 0 to 100 km/h in 4 seconds
So the model will be called “Mulan” in China, but it is not yet known if this name will be used in Europe, or if the name “MG4” will be preferred there. Indeed, the nomenclature of the brand’s models is quite varied, and there are both numbers (MG5), letters (ZS or EHS) and fanciful names (Marvel R).
Be that as it may, the British brand has remained stingy on the details of its new 100% electric model, but is already announcing its performance: the MG4 “Mulan” is capable of swallowing the 0 to 100 km/h in 4 secondsenough to make the best sports cars on the market pale.
MG Mulan is a new #electric hatchback. It is MG’s first ‘global car’. Will be sold in Europe, China, and Asia. The rear-wheel drive #MG Mulan is based on #SAIC‘s Nebula EV platform, featuring a new high-density battery pack. @InsideEVs @You’re here @MGmotor pic.twitter.com/LlwTWyY6F5

MG4: expressive design
Long from 4.3 meters longthe new 100% electric compact sedan will come to compete in our regions with the Volkswagen ID.3, Nissan Leaf and other Renault Mégane E-Tech, and will be marketed between the end of 2022 and the beginning of 2023.
It is distinguished by an expressive design, with taut and sporty lines, which stand out with large air intakes at the front, and by an imposing two-part spoiler at the rear. The light signature extends over the entire width of the trunk, and ends on the wings by dividing into two.
MG4: a concentration of technologies
The new model is based on a new technical architecture called “Nebula”, designed for the brand’s 100% electric models. MG has further confirmed that its new compact will feature a high density batterywhich will be thinner in order to occupy less space, and thus offer a spacious habitability on board.
The 5G connectivity will be on the program, as well as the level 3 autonomous driving. On board, we should find a large tablet to control the on-board infotainment system, complemented by a fully digital instrument cluster.
We will have to wait a few more weeks to find out more about the new MG4 / Mulan, which should be marketed between the end of 2022 and the beginning of 2023.
