MG Motor Europe has confirmed that the Marvel R Electric will go on sale in Europe later this month with a choice between rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive models.
Unveiled last March, the MG Marvel R Electric is the brand’s flagship SUV, fitted for European motorists who appreciate design, technology and performance. The largest and most luxurious SUV in MG’s portfolio offers a spacious interior with great attention to refinement, quality and technology. Particularly striking is the 19.4” central touchscreen to operate the all-new MG iSMART connectivity system with an extensive range of (online) functions and connection through a smartphone app, with which various functions can be controlled remotely.
Depending on the market, customers can choose from three trim levels (Comfort, Luxury and Performance) and two advanced powertrain variants (RWD and AWD). The Comfort and Luxury both have rear-wheel drive, two electric motors, a system output of 132 kW (180 ps), 410 Nm of torque, and a WLTP range of 402 kilometres. The Performance version adds an electric motor to the front axle, and offers permanent all-wheel drive. System output and peak torque are set at 212 kW (288 ps) and 665 Nm, combined with a range of 370 kilometres (WLTP).
All versions of the Marvel R Electric are equipped with a 70 kWh battery and 11 kW 3-phase on-board charger for quick AC-charging. The battery is also suitable for fast charging (DC) with a maximum of 92 kW, which allows the battery to be charged from 5-80% in just 43 minutes. Furthermore, the standard equipment of the Marvel R Electric includes a comprehensive range of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), a heat pump that can heat or cool the battery (and the interior) to ensure optimum charging performance in all circumstances and a so-called V2L (vehicle-to-load) system. This striking feature allows the battery to supply energy to an external electrical system, for example an air pump, electric scooter, a laptop or even another BEV.
The new MG Marvel R Electric will be available in the European MG Brand Stores from the end of this month. The European prices start at € 39,990 for the Comfort version. For the additional cost of just € 4,000, the SUV is available in Luxury trim (€ 43,990). The most comprehensive and powerful version, the Performance, is available from € 47,990.
