Inter Emirates Motors (IEM), the official distributor of MG Motor in the UAE, has announced the launch of the brand’s first plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) in the UAE, the 2024 MG HS PHEV. Presenting a low-carbon emission alternative for customers in the region, the dynamic SUV is the perfect union of efficiency and performance.

Powered by MG’s 1.5-litre high-efficiency turbo engine, the MG HS PHEV can cover over 64* km on its 16.6 KW electric motor alone, with the combined output of 258 horsepower helping it to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in just 6.9 seconds. With paddle shift gear change, developing maximum torque of 480Nm can hit a top speed of 190 km/h.

The MG HS PHEV boasts exceptional fuel efficiency, consuming only 1.8 litres per 100 kilometres*. This remarkable fuel consumption ensures that drivers can go farther on less fuel, reducing their overall carbon footprint.

With a rating of 4.3 grams per kilometre according to the WLTP standard, this plug-in hybrid vehicle significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions compared to conventional internal combustion engine cars.

When it comes to charging, the 2024 MG HS PHEV offers convenient options for its electric motor. The charging time for a full charge is approximately 4.5 hours, allowing users to replenish the battery overnight or during the day. For those needing a quick top-up, a fast charge can provide 80% battery capacity in just 35 minutes, making it suitable for on-the-go charging.

Building on the success of the sporty SUV, the arrival of the new MG HS PHEV and MG HS is yet another significant step forward in MG Motor‘s offerings, as the brand continues to expand options for car buyers across the region with its highly advanced and well-equipped range of sedans and SUVs.

It joins the recently launched MG ONE and all-new MG RX5 models in the British-born automotive brand’s rapidly expanding Middle East line-up.

Tom Lee, Managing Director of MG Motor Middle East, commented: “The launch of our first plug-in hybrid is the next step in the MG Middle East journey as we bring our expertise with new energy vehicles to our customers while still providing the option of a conventional combustion engine. MG is bringing a wealth of experience to the region as one of the manufacturers of one of the best-selling NEV in the world. With the MG HS PHEV, its sporty feel has not been compromised, where performance and comfort are balanced for our customers to get more from every journey.”

The launch of the MG HS PHEV offers drivers an eco-friendly option that coincides with the UAE’s “Year of Sustainability” theme. For 2023, the nation aims to inspire collective action towards sustainable practices and innovative solutions to press global challenges such as climate change and energy while honouring the UAE’s deep-rooted values of sustainability and the legacy of its founder, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

The MG HS showcases a sporty design with sleek lines flowing from the bonnet to the rear, complemented by 21 individual LED rear lights. The stellar field grille, twin tailpipes, and aluminium bumper enhance the bold appearance.

The cabin embodies sportiness with racing-style bucket seats in luxurious LUX trim, offering optimal comfort with high-quality leather sourced from German manufacturer Bader. The three-spoke leather steering wheel, sports stitching, and multi-function buttons add to the stylish interior.

With intelligent features, the MG HS has user-friendly touches to ensure its driver is always comfortable, connected, and completely controlled. It boasts two high-quality screens: a 12.3″ Virtual Instrument display behind the steering wheel for essential information and a 10.1″ high-resolution touch screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

The Electronic Stability Program also offers eight safety functions, including ABS, EBD, CBC, TCS, VDC, HAZ, HHC, and BDW, ensuring driving stability in extreme road conditions.

Both MG HS and MG PHEV come in COM or LUX options. Prices will be announced shortly according to each market.
