Marvel R Performance
MG offers two drivetrains for MARVEL R. Standard version comes with two electric motors located on the rear axle. It is a rear-wheel drive system producing 186 HP and 410 Nm of torque. Thanks to its unique two rear motor drive system, MARVEL R can run from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.9 seconds.
All-wheel drive MARVEL R Performance version has three electric motors, producing a total of 288 horsepower and 665 Nm torque, 0-100 km/h in 4.9 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 200 km per hour, same as the regular MARVEL R.
Marvel R Design and Features
MARVEL R designed on a vehicle platform that its sole intention is to create pure electric cars, unlike MG ZS EV. As a result, electric SUV provides a spacious interior and a more aerodynamically efficient exterior design. MG takes a more luxurious design direction with its newest vehicles and MARVEL R shows that change very well.
Front end of the vehicle resembles a very sleek look, sharp lines across the hood, C-shaped headlights and the front lightbar put there to guarantee young customers’ desire. Rear face looks a lot like the Turkish EV startup TOGG’s mid-range SUV. Chinese automaker did use a lightbar in the rear as well.
MARVEL R has a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, and a huge 19.4-inch vertical infotainment touch display. You can handle most of the features via big screen, but angled design is not ideal for someone in a usual driving position. Other than that, MG did a pretty good job with MARVEL R’s interior.
18-inch rims, two zone climate control, and power tailgate come as standard, but 9-speaker BOSE sound system, wireless charging pad for mobile devices, and ventilated front seats are optional.
Marvel R Range and Charging
All MG MARVEL R models have the same 70-kWh battery pack. Dual motor version offers 402 kilometers of range according to WLTP cycle. AWD MARVEL R Performance has a slightly shorter range at around 370 km. Both versions support 100 kW DC charging, 5-80% in 43 minutes. V2L (vehicle to load) feature allows car owners to power their appliances, mobile devices, and tools at up to 2500W power rate.
