After Much Speculation, MG One Will Finally Land In Malaysian Showrooms

They’re finally coming. Yes, MG is finally landing in Malaysia. The brand, which is now owned by SAIC Motor in China, is expected to launch a number of models in the local market, including the Cyberster, ZS EV, and MG4 EV. And now the MG One has joined the ranks. Indeed, MG has a significant presence in neighboring markets like the Philippines, and now it plans to repeat that success here.

Currently, the MG One model is available from MG Philippines in two variants: Standard and Lux, which starts at P1,298,888 (about RM110,963) and P1.458,888 (around RM 124,632), respectively. A 5-year/100,000 mile vehicle warranty and round-the-clock roadside support are part of the package.

The newest MG model has a stylish body with a sloping roofline that, when viewed from the side, gives it a part crossover, part wagon-like aspect. As far as unique design is involved it has a stylish set of LED headlights mounted in a distinctive front grille bracket. In addition, fake skid plates, a tailboard spoiler and eye-catching LED tail lights are all part of the rear design.

A 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine calibrated to produce a maximum output of 168 horsepower and peak torque of 285 Nm powers both coupe SUV versions. The gearbox, which is continuously variable, delivers power to the front wheels while four-wheel disc brakes and an electronic power steering system complete the driving package.

Dual front and dual side airbags, ABS with EBD and BA, an electronic stability programme, hill-hold control, cornering brake control, hill-descent control, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, a 360-degree camera system, and front and rear cameras are all part of the new MG One’s fully equipped safety package.

Carlist Thoughts

According to MG, while the fully electric MG One looks like making a splash when it lands—thanks to its packaging, powertrain and range, it is uncertain if an ICE-powered MG One will ever arrive. Stay tuned for more info on the One as it will no doubt be a major player in the Malaysian EV world.
