THE MG EV
CONCEPT

Back to topOVERVIEW

The MG EV concept car was unveiled in 2014 to celebrate the marque’s 90th anniversary.

The concept electric vehicle encompasses the latest in design and engineering technology from the iconic Longbridge based manufacturer.

With the electric vehicle market developing rapidly, although still in its infancy stage, MG's Birmingham based engineers have proved that they have the technical ability to develop state of the art vehicles of this kind. 

The EV concept vehicle is the latest MG to be created at SAIC Motor’s state of the art European Design and Technical Centre (SMTC), located alongside MG Motor UK, at the Longbridge site in Birmingham. MG are currently evaluating feedback from fully driveable prototypes.
