Why did you choose the MG5 SR?

I wanted more range than I had with my previous EV, a Soul 27kWh, which I loved but which only did 100 miles on a nice warm day and 65 miles in the winter.


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

  • The range and the load space
  • I love the colour too.


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

  • The headlights are rubbish, the beams are too narrow so you can’t see around corners on country lanes.
