Why did you choose this car?
Within my budget and MG gave an NHS discount.


Positives – List 3 or more reasons why you love this car?

  • Clean
  • Efficient
  • Nippy
  • Great on country roads
  • Quiet
  • Easy to drive (I’m disabled and have reduced grip so no more standing at fuel pumps in pain).


Negatives – List 3 or more things that you really don’t like about this car?

  • Charging badge should lower not raise, but that’s a disability issue.


Surprise us! Tell us something surprising about this car?
I was surprised that you could add to the range with KERS.


Stick or twist? If it’s twist, what are you considering and why?
Stick, definitely.


What home charging unit do you use and would you recommend it to others?
Just now, an outdoor waterproof plug, waiting for a Pod Point. But may not spend the money as this works well and my unit price per kWh has been reduced by the EV tariff over 24 hours anyway. Trickle charging is fine for me.


What home electricity supplier & tariff do you use and would you recommend it to others?
EDF – GoElectric tariff & yes.


What public charging networks do you use and would you recommend them to others?
Only tried twice as they were free and I was waiting for my cable installation. Not worth the free kWh but that could be my disability, in and out of the car half a dozen times to get it working or to release. I can’t leave the car so sitting doing nothing for a couple of hours isn’t viable.


Who do you insure your EV with and would you recommend them to others?
Privilege – gave me a good price.
