MG HS Plug-in Hybrid in Falkirk & Edinburgh
The MG HS Plug-in Hybrid delivers the perfect synergy of electric and petrol. In EV mode (100% electric) it boasts a 32 mile range, so you don’t use any petrol. For longer journeys and maximum performance, you can enter Hybrid mode so the 1.5L turbocharged petrol engine and 90Kw electric motor work together. This setup produces 254bhp and a 0-62mph time of 6.9 seconds to put a smile on your face. Using a Type 2 fast charger, the MG HS Plug-in Hybrid charges to 100% in around 3 hours but it’s able to run without being charged thanks to the petrol engine. Two trim levels are available (Excite, Exclusive) with the latest version of MG Pilot equipped as standard, which includes adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring and lane keeping assist.
The MG HS Plug-in Hybrid might be green underneath, but it’s sporty on the outside with 18” alloy wheels, LED headlights and a svelte shape. The interior is lovely, with leather upholstery in Exclusive specification and a 10.1” touchscreen.
The MG HS Plug-in Hybrid has a unique 10-speed automatic transmission with 6 petrol gears and 4 electric gears. It works brilliantly, providing a smooth and responsive drive whichever mode you are in. EV mode has a 32 mile range.
Despite accommodating a large battery pack, the MG HS Plug-in Hybrid doesn’t compromise on boot space with a 448-litre load volume. There’s plenty of space for five adults and there are dual ISOFIX points on the rear outer seats.
