The MG is a smart looking car, has good features and safety credentials.

Its range is stated as 260km which is similar to the Nissan Leaf EV.


The Kona has a bigger battery and a very good range of about 480km. But the top spec Hyundai will cost over $71,000 to get it on the road.

The MG currently has a drive away price of just under $44,000.

Buying a car usually has some compromises.

It is not hard to see that as Australia is a highly urbanized country many would accept charging one to three times a week in order to save some $27,000 on the purchase price.
