The MG4 is one of the more affordable EVs on the market, yet is able to provide the performance and specifications of its more expensive competitors - giving its drivers the biggest bang for their buck.
Its unique design, advanced features and increased range capabilities make the MG4 a great offering for prospective EV buyers.
The history of the MG brand dates back to 1920s England, and although still headquartered in the UK, the company ownership is now under Shanghai-based Chinese Automaker SAIC Motor.
Over the last year, MG has flooded the European market with an impressive range of new electric car models, making it the fastest-growing mainstream car brand in the UK.
The quality of the MG4 illustrates how they have managed to achieve such an impressive feat.
The MG4 enables the driver to create bespoke colourways to personalise the car, ranging from six different variants, including a striking volcanic orange and a clean black pearl exterior.
Moreover, the vehicle incorporates a sophisticated active grille system that manages the airflow entering the front compartment, assisting drivers in optimising their EV's battery range.
Additionally, the car features a two-tone black roof and sleek headlights, contributing to its dynamic and contemporary appearance.
The spaciousness and comfortability of the car are apparent once inside, with the MG4 providing the driver and passengers alike, with ample headroom and legroom.
This is complemented by the car's elegant and polished exterior design. Furthermore, the technology that is included is unlikely to disappoint, with a wireless phone charge holder, as well as a 10.25" touch screen that comes enabled with Apple Carplay and Android Auto.
Additionally, MG has built its own iSMART app which allows you to control multiple car features, such as charging and climate control, all from your phone.
The MG4 boasts high safety levels, thanks to its advanced MG Pilot driver assistance system.
This system includes numerous functions like active emergency braking with pedestrian and bicycle detection, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and additional features, all working together to ensure a secure journey when utilising the car.
Furthermore, the MG4 excels in efficiency, with the ability to charge from 10 to 80 per cent in less than 35 minutes.
Most models offer an impressive range of up to 360 miles, making long-distance driving more convenient than ever.
This car is versatile and suitable for various environments, from rural roads to motorways, offering simplicity and enjoyment beyond your expectations.
Although the price point of the MG is already extremely reasonable, salary sacrificing the car through The Electric Car Scheme can provide even more cost savings, with monthly lease costs starting as low as £300.
This can work out to a saving of around £6000, or 37 per cent across a 3-year lease, when compared to sourcing the car yourself through a personal contract hire.

Salary sacrifice the Jeep Avenger

The Avenger marks Jeep's inaugural foray into the realm of fully electric vehicles, and it stands out notably due to its striking, dynamic, and adventurous design.
Moreover, it showcases several technological innovations that enhance driver safety and differentiate it from the classic Jeep model we are accustomed to.
Jeep, with its roots dating back to 1941, initially focused exclusively on crafting military vehicles.
However, in the mid-1940s, they shifted their focus towards creating rugged off-road cruisers. Jeep pioneered the production of mass-produced four-door cars, heralding the era of SUVs.
Over the course of its history, Jeep has maintained a distinct and robust design ethos tailored for outdoor exploration.
Despite its somewhat gradual transition, in January 2023, Jeep introduced its first fully electric vehicle, the Avenger.
While the Avenger may exhibit a more urban-oriented appearance compared to traditional Jeep models, it retains the iconic Jeep DNA through its bold, muscular structure and distinctive seven-slot front grille.
Despite being mentioned alongside electric vehicles like the Hyundai Kona and Kia Niro EV, the Avenger preserves the core elements of Jeep's legendary design heritage.
The most compact model that Jeep has ever produced, the Avenger is shielded by 360-degree body protection, and its bold LED headlights and black roof make it a distinctive and highly recognizable SUV.
You have the opportunity to personalise the Avenger, making it uniquely yours by incorporating accessories such as distinct exterior graphics and the option of 18-inch alloy wheels. Additionally, you can choose from three distinct versions: The Summit (representing the latest generation), the Longitude (offering a futuristic style), and the Altitude (providing a blend of style and comfort).
Each of these versions brings a unique flair while preserving the car's core identity.
Inside, the interior is both modern and technologically advanced, providing ample storage space for the driver.
The seat adjustment system and spacious layout contribute to a comfortable and relaxing driving experience.
A yellow and black accent running across the entire front, along with multicoloured lighting, infuses the car with a cheerful and ambient atmosphere.
The steering wheel is lightweight, and the brakes are gentle, resulting in the smoothest driving experience Jeep has ever delivered.
Furthermore, the car features Apple CarPlay on its 10.25-inch digital panel, along with the convenience of wireless phone charging via the built-in grid.
Despite lacking four-wheel drive capability, this new electric Jeep remains well-prepared for navigating challenging terrain, even though it is primarily designed for urban driving.
Its Selec-Terrain and Hill Descent Control technology empowers you to adapt to and tackle various weather and road conditions.
Additionally, its integrated advanced driver-assist features enable the SUV to maintain its position within the lane and maintain a safe distance from other vehicles.
The Avenger boasts a rapid charging rate of 100kWh, allowing it to charge from 20 to 80 per cent in just 24 minutes.
In a mere 5 minutes of charging, it can provide a range of 24 miles, which conveniently aligns with the average daily driving distance.
Furthermore, on a single battery charge, the car delivers a range of just under 250 miles, more than sufficient for its intended use.
Impressively, the car accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in just 9.6 seconds, a remarkably swift performance for a Jeep.
Salary sacrificing the Avenger using the Electric Car Scheme can save you upwards of £10,000 over a 3-year lease. Have a look at their quote tool to explore for yourself.

A more cost-effective way of leasing the Genesis GV60

The Genesis GV60 represents the epitome of elegance and innovation in the realm of electric cars, providing drivers with a serene and tranquil driving experience in a stunning zero-emissions vehicle.
Genesis emerged as a subsidiary of the renowned Korean automotive giant, Hyundai, in 2003, with the vision of offering more prestigious and upscale models.
The inaugural Genesis model made its debut in 2007 in South Korea. However, it wasn't until 2021 that Genesis electric vehicles made their way to the United Kingdom and Europe.
The initial models introduced in Europe, including the GV70 and GV80, did not garner the expected success.
Nonetheless, the GV60's arrival marked a turning point, reshaping perceptions of the Genesis brand and establishing itself as the product that should have led the brand's introduction to the European market.
One of the standout qualities of the GV60 lies in its striking aesthetics both on the exterior and within the cabin.
Genesis has ingeniously embraced the concept of the 'beauty of white space' in crafting the GV60, with the primary objective of fashioning a comfortable, spacious, and serene environment for the driver.
This objective is brilliantly achieved through generous headroom and legroom, impeccably coordinated colour schemes, and an architectural design that imparts an airy ambience.
Incorporating cutting-edge technology, the GV60 pioneers the use of a facial recognition system for unlocking.
Additionally, on either side of the front seats, there are screens displaying the rearview, along with a central screen equipped with Apple CarPlay functionality.
One of the most unique and captivating features of this vehicle is the presence of the Crystal Sphere at its centre.
This exquisite element serves not only as a design and mood-enhancing feature when the car is inactive but also as a mobile interface when the car is in operation, aligning with Genesis' primary aim of forging an emotional connection between the driver and the vehicle.
The GV60 exudes an air of opulence and sophistication akin to what one would associate with prominent luxury car brands like Porsche or Ferrari.
The ride quality is characterised by a gentle and smooth glide, ensuring an exceptional experience even at high speeds.
Furthermore, the car offers a distinctive and advantageous drift mode, facilitating easier parking and enhancing the overall enjoyment of the journey, even in challenging terrains.
The GV60 showcases remarkable capabilities, thanks to its 350kWh charger, which enables it to charge from 10 to 80 per cent in a mere 18 minutes.
In terms of acceleration, this vehicle can achieve 0-60 mph in just 3.6 seconds, firmly establishing itself as one of the swiftest cars available in the market.
The Electric Car Scheme enables you to get behind the wheel of this luxurious car, while saving 37 per cent on the lease cost via salary sacrifice.
This works out to more than £12,000 in cost savings over 3 years, relative to the price you would pay on a personal lease.
