The MG MG5 Electric Long Range has a maximum power of 115KW (156hp). The total torque is 280nm. The 0-100km/h sprint (0-62mph) takes 8,3 seconds. The top speed is 185 km/h.

Battery, range, and charging

The battery has a gross capacity of 61,1kWh and a net capacity of 57,4kWh, meaning you have a 3,7kWh buffer for protection. (6,1%). The battery is a Lithium-Ion battery based on NMC technology. The WLTP range varies from 400 to 380 km (249-236 mi), depending on car options. Bigger wheels are an example of an equipment option that increases consumption and reduces the electric range. The consumption is between 14,4kWh/100km for the basic version and 15,1kWh/100km for the top trim version for the WLTP standard test. For more details about the range, see real-world data and range listing on this model’s range and consumption page.

The maximum DC charging speed is 87kW. A full charge from 0 - 100% would take 75 minutes, while a more common scenario of 10-80% would take 33 minutes. If you assume you lose 5 minutes driving per charge stop in addition to the charge time, the optimum charge area is from 8% to 58% resulting in an actual charge speed including time loss on 67kW. Each charge session would take 26 minutes and 50 seconds.

For the theoretical 1000km challenge, starting with a full battery and driving at 120km/h (75 mph), assuming optimal driving conditions and consumption of 23kWh/100km, 1000km will take 10 hours and 57 minutes to drive. This trip will require seven charge session(s) charging from 9% to 52%. The total time lost for charging will be 157 minutes.

Onboard charger

For level 1 and level 2 AC charging, the onboard charger supports up to 11KW charging. As a result, you can charge the battery 0-100% from home in about 5 hours and 13 minutes.
