(Elbil24): British-Chinese MG launched this summer Marvel R Electric, an SUV with plenty of space and a lot of equipment. The car comes with optional two- or four-wheel drive, but there is something completely different that surprises the most.

Because with a full package, including four-wheel drive, it costs no more than 418,000 kroner, reports the importer Norwegian Mobility Group, which has now opened for sale the car.

The car comes with three equipment levels. Comfort and Luxury come with operation on rear wheels, while top-equipped Performance has operation on all four wheels.

Prices start at NOK 339,990 for the Comfort version and NOK 377,000 for the Luxury version.

The top version Performance 4WD thus costs from 418,000 kroner. It must be said to be a very competitive price on a very well equipped car with potent performance.

The company has itself designated, among other things, Volkswagen ID.4 as an obvious competitor. If you want it with four-wheel drive (GTX), you have to pay at least 456,000 kroner.

Fast as that

In terms of performance, there is not much to complain about. The four-wheel drive, which has the most power, make the sprint to 100 km / h in 4.9 seconds.

Thus, the Marvel R is not only the most affordable electric SUV with four-wheel drive, it will also be the fastest electric car for the money, when we put 418,000 kroner on the table.

The battery capacity is stated to be 70 kWh, which we assume is gross capacity, after seeing the stated range. According to the WLTP standard, it is stated to be 37 miles on the four-wheel drive, and 40.2 miles on the two-wheel drive version. It is thus in the cards that the car has a relatively high consumption, as it no longer comes with such a large battery.

An interesting detail is the support for the V2L (Vehicle-to load) system. This allows the car to supply other electrical equipment with power, with an output of up to 2.5 kW. Kia EV6 and Ioniq 5 also support V2L, but here the limit is 3.5 kW.

Now we have not been given the maximum charging power, other than that it takes 43 minutes to charge the battery from 5 to 80 percent again.

It will be exciting to see how the car copes with a harsh Norwegian winter, but it is equipped with a heat pump for better efficiency.

New safety

Marvel R is equipped with the brand’s new software system, MG iSmart, and has, among other things, a 19.4-inch screen in height format in the center console. As we are used to from other such systems, Marvel R can also be controlled from an app on the mobile. It also supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as a number of other online solutions. Voice control and live navigation are also in place, in addition to the system being updated so-called OTA (Over The Air).

Marvel R also supports a number of active safety features, some of which are almost required to get five stars in Euro NCAP.

The car measures just over 4.67 meters in length, and it has a wheelbase of 2.8 meters. The latter is a few centimeters longer than, for example, VW ID.4, Skoda Enyaq and the other cars on the MEB platform.

The luggage compartment is not the largest, with its 357 liters, but fold down the seats, and you have 1396 liters at your disposal. The model with rear-wheel drive also has a 150 liter frunk under the hood, as it does not have an electric motor at the front. If you need to carry even more, the car can tow a trailer weight of up to 750 kg, and it has the option of up to 75 kg. taklast.

Both shape, function and performance indicate that this is a car that is suitable for very many, and the MG ZS EV – which is already on the market – shows that people like to press the MG to their chest.

The importer now announces that the car will be in place at authorized MG dealers during October.

Elbil24 will soon return with a test of the car.
