The premiere of the MG One SUV is scheduled for July 30, but the main data are already known thanks to the certification. The cross-hatch is built on the new SAIC Sigma platform, which is suitable for cars with internal combustion engines, electric cars and hybrids. The first will be a petrol version with a turbocharger 1.5 15C4E (181 hp, 275 N • m), a six-speed “mechanics” and a seven-speed “robot” with front-wheel drive. By the way, the MG 6 liftback is similarly equipped, so there is no doubt about the appearance of a hybrid and a Pro version.
The name One has an explanation. The letter “O” is taken from the English word “Origin” and means building the model from scratch. The letter “N” is taken from the word Twin and alludes to double wisdom. The “E” stands for Neo, which means “new” in Greek.
Externally, the model is similar to the MG Pilot, and the dimensions are close: 4579x1866x1601 mm, the wheelbase is 2670. The grille structure is of three types, and the front bumper is of two. The bifurcated pipes are fake here, but with a diffuser. Chinese media think the One looks like an Aston Martin DBX.
Most likely, One will be produced not only in China, but also in India, where three MG models are already available: Hector SUV with a three-row version of Hector Plus, MG ZS EV electric car and Gloster SUV. True, the Indian press has not yet confirmed the launch of One. At the same time, there is a high probability of supplying the cross-hatch to the UK, to the historical homeland of the brand. Moreover, One does not need to be electrified for this.
We will remind, earlier it was reported that new models of MG were presented in Ukraine. The famous British brand is returning to our market. Sales start in September.
