Why did you choose this electric car?

I’ve retired early due to ill health and I wanted a car I could step into and out of easier and an SUV suited me. I wanted an automatic so it also ticked that box. I do less miles than previously and my Vauxhall Insignia was costing just under £100 to fill a tank of diesel. As much as I really liked that car it was time to go. I had seen a lot of MGs around where I lived and I liked the look of it.

  • Cost of tax and fuel over 5 years pays the difference between the EV and the old diesel car

  • Connectivity.


The list is endless!
