So any other news on the MG3. I asked a guy in MG and he said it will be due end of this year early next. Plus this article back in January. Is it worth having its own thread now like the Marvel R etc has?

Personally I think it'll be a massive hit and probably the cheapest EV ever.

Oh it's going to be a cracker of a car. Small, nippy hatchback and EV. This is what my Mrs is waiting for. And cheaper than any Zoe etc. Think this is where the average person wanting a small EV and can't afford big things will go for. We would have got the petrol version a year ago but it doesn't come in an automatic.

Right on my birthday, maybe a little treat for myself :)
Petrol MG3 is great and my father in laws MG ZS EV is also great so I am looking forward to an MG3 electric.

He liked the MG3 when I bought it and asked if they did an electric, the ZS EV was all that was available but he is very pleased with it after having had a BMW3 for the last 20 years.

Mrs Caldosan loves my new MG5 and whilst she is a Mini fan, is underwhelmed by their electric offerings. A new MG3 EV might just turn her away from the dark side into the light.

There is sales to made in this small car EV league, that’s for sure.
Not really a massive amount of competition in the class.
Yeah - There is the Mini EV and the Fiat 500 EV but expensive for the size of the car.
I don’t think the VAG group is offering the e.uP at the moment, or the similar offerings of the City Go / Imeiv.
If the price is pitched correctly, then it will sell for a great “Nipping About” car I think.

I think the Dacia Spring could be the car to beat in the small EV sector if/when it arrives in the UK - essentially using proven Renault technology but scaled down to a budget pricepoint

In comparison with the MG, especially taking the likely cost of the Dacia into account, it does look good value for money. OK, you'd have to go into buying it knowing that the real world range is likely to be less, but if you understood and accepted this (i.e. mostly urban driving like it's been designed for), this car could be successful.
