New MG Mulan Electric Loaded with Technology

New MG Mulan Electric Loaded with Technology

The new Morris Garage electric car’s technical characteristics have been verified. The new MG Mulan is an electric compact introduced in China to compete with the Volkswagen ID.3 and the Nissan Leaf, among others. In its most powerful configuration, it has a range of up to 600 kilometers and 204 horsepower. Additionally, this model will be marketed throughout Europe.

Recently, the first photographs and specifications of the long-awaited Morris Garage electric vehicle were released. The new MG Mulan infiltrated remote China. A compact designed to compete with cars such as the Volkswagen ID.3 and the Nissan Leaf. This new energy-generating will also reach Europe. On the Old Continent, however, it will be offered under a different name. Among the names on the chart are MG CyberE and MG4.

The new MG electric is once again in the headlines due to the confirmation of its technical parameters. Measurements, autonomy, power, etc… All these critical factors have been exposed, giving us a better picture of what the next generation of electric vehicles will bring, which should fuel Morris Garage’s worldwide development. Let’s go into depth.

It is the first MG vehicle to use the Nebula platform, an electric car-specific design. It features a Hatchback-style body with five doors and a length of 4.3 meters. The curb weight is 1,665 kilos, while the turning radius is 5,3 meters.

Additionally, MG has validated that the center of gravity is quite low and the weight distribution is 50/50. Utilizing the aforementioned platform was crucial in achieving new security requirements. The ultimate aim, particularly for models destined for Europe, is to get the highest possible score on the rigorous Euro NCAP testing.

The Mulan’s battery, which we will discuss later, is also equipped with CTP technology and offers more safety by avoiding thermal runaway. Since power is sent to the back axle, we are dealing with a rear-wheel-drive vehicle.

The range of the new MG Mulan is 600 kilometers.

MG has divided the Mulan battery lineup into two sizes. On the one side, we have a 51 kWh battery, and on the other, a 64 kWh battery. The primary function of the chosen battery is to power a 150 kW (204 hp) motor. Predictably, and based on what is known about its introduction in the Asian nation, further motorizations and battery sizes will be added in the future.

The manufacturer has emphasized that its lowest capacity battery is just 110mm thick. The batteries of the Mulan are very small because of LSB technology. The battery pack is 1,690 mm in length but only 1,300 mm in width. SAIC has a 30% stake in Ningde E-CON Power System, the manufacturer of these NMC batteries.

As for the Mulan’s range, the manufacturer predicts models with 400, 500, and 600 kilometers of autonomy. It is essential to emphasize that we are discussing autonomies based on the Chinese approval cycle, which are often substantially greater than those attained by the European norm.

When will it be available? China will be the first market to get the new Mulan. There, it will cost less than €28,450. In consideration of the number of available engines and trim levels, the offer will be segmented into several tiers. The process of producing the new Mulan series has already begun. It occurs at a SAIC factory in Ningde, Fujian (China).

The European release is scheduled for the fourth quarter of this year. Therefore, it will arrive at European showrooms as a 2023 model in 2023.
