MG4 and MG5 EV winners at What Car? Awards 2023

The MG4 EV & MG5 EV were among many winners at the What Car? 2023 Electric Car Awards yesterday, with stiff competition from some of the market's biggest giants including BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Porsche.

The awards, which are now in their fourth year, recognise the UK's best new and used electric cars (EVs) and Plug-In Hybrid (PHEVs) for every budget.

Award-winning MG4 EV

The MG4 EV took home the "best electric family car" and "most affordable new electric" at yesterday's awards and was described by What Car? as being "thousands of pounds cheaper than its rivals, offers fast charging, plenty of space, and lots of equipment as standard"

MG5 EV wins another two awards

And when we come to the large family estate car in the MG range, the MG5 EV picked up "best electric estate car" for both the new & used categories, with What Car? commenting "With a long range, enough room for a family, and low cash price - it's easy to recommend!"

Both of these cars are no newcomers to the world of awards.

Some of their previous awards include:


  • Best Value EV by WhichEV?
  • Best Large Electric Car for Value
  • Best Electric Estate


  • Bargain of the Year 2022 (Top Gear)
  • Best Value Electric Car (DrivingElectric)
  • Car of the Year (DrivingElectric)
  • Reader's Favourite Electric Car (DrivingElectric)
  • Best EV under £40,000 (Scottish Car of the Year Awards)

Again, the MG4 & MG5 EV have proved doubters wrong by accumulating more and more awards as the years go on - they just keep getting better and better.
