I saw the MG 9, an ultra-aerodynamic electric car that recharges in the blink of an eye.

MG is definitely stocking up on new products at the Geneva Motor Show. Following the premium IM brand and the MG S9 SUV, the Chinese brand introduces its fourth new electric vehicle, the MG 9, with excellent aerodynamic performance and battery exchange compatibility. We went to see her.

While European manufacturers are avoiding the Geneva Motor Show (except Renault, which showed off its highly anticipated Renault 5 E-Tech), China is taking their place with great new products.

As evidence, MG is introducing four new electric vehicles, including the premium-oriented IM L6 and LS6, the MG S9, a fastback SUV, and the MG 9, a sedan version.

aerodynamic record

It is important to keep in mind that, like the MG S9, this MG 9 has already existed in China under the name Rising Auto F7 since March 2023 (Rising Auto, like MG, is part of the SAIC group).

This isn’t surprising, as only the logo changes. This MG 9 is a large electric sedan with a length of 5 meters and a width of 1.95 meters and can compete head-on with the Tesla Model S. The MG has absolutely amazing aerodynamics of 0.206, which is much better than the Model S (0.208). .

In terms of style, the look of the Nio ET7 stands out. Thus, at the front we find very tapered headlights and a second projector block on the shield, while the fastback profile and the light strip at the rear are still very reminiscent of the Nio sedan.

technological interior

The interior, on the other hand, is very similar to the MG S9. Therefore, we found on the dashboard a huge screen consisting of three screens, very similar to the Mercedes-Benz Hyperscreen. One is a 10.25-inch screen behind the steering wheel, another is 15.05 inches centered, and the third is a 12.3-inch passenger screen.

The whole thing is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8155 chip, but unlike the SUV, there’s a fourth 8-inch screen for rear seat passengers. Trunk size and presence or absence of a trunk frunk It is not specified before.

Powerful and compatible with battery swapping

This new electric MG will benefit from more powerful engines than the S9, as a second engine appears, sufficient to deliver 400 kW/544 hp and 700 Nm of torque. Acceleration is affected, completing 0-100 km/h in 3.8 seconds.

The battery is also larger. There is a 90 kWh NMC (nickel-manganese-cobalt) pack, which suffers from its high power, showing “only” 505 km according to WLTP standards.

However, it maintains compatibility with the battery exchange system (“Replace the battery”, again like Nio), is enough to utilize a new battery in the blink of an eye. However, it is not known whether this solution will be adopted in Europe.

Moreover, MG is not announcing a release date or European pricing for this MG 9. The price of the clone in China is between 189,900 and 309,900 yuan (or approximately 24,320 and 39,700 euros), but this price will be good. europe. You should also expect prices above your current range when considering equipment and services.
