MG 4 electric car earns five-star safety rating in Australia
Australia’s second-cheapest electric vehicle has received a five-star ANCAP safety rating, ahead of local deliveries beginning this month.
The 2023 MG 4 – Australia’s second-cheapest new electric car – has been awarded a five-star safety rating from the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP).
While the MG 4’s score is being published in Australia in 2023, it was tested in Europe last year under ANCAP and sister organisation Euro NCAP’s 2020-22 test protocols – which were superseded by stricter standards this year.
The five-star result is the first for an MG under the 2020-2022 standards, as the Chinese car maker’s last model to be awarded an ANCAP rating was in 2019, with a five-star score for the petrol-powered HS SUV.
It also marks the second time an MG electric vehicle has earned five stars f
