Electric cars are going mainstream, and MG Motor Australia plans to bring carbon-free motoring to the masses. Whether it’s battling with Sydney city traffic, pounding up and down the Tullamarine Freeway, or taking a spirited drive through the Barossa, the car you’ll be doing that in will almost certainly be electric or a plug-in hybrid in the next five to ten years.

MG is the company attracting a lot of attention with its plans for a fleet of affordable and long-range electric vehicles.

If you’ve been thinking of purchasing a second car for your family’s needs, you’re not alone. Aussie households have put their foot on the pedal when it comes to having two cars in the garage. According to the latest research from id community, two-car homes now represent 53% of the national total. Increased demand for driving plus multi-generation households have led to a surge over the past year.

MG is all about making things simpler. Their flagship SUV, the HS Plus EV, is a plug-in hybrid with an impressive 50 kilometres of pure electric range, plus enough style and swagger to turn heads. It’s an uber practical option with an eco-minded slant.

MG’s new fully electric ZS EV is packed with simplicity, comfort and practicality and at a highly competitive price in the EV market.

Peter Ciao, CEO of MG Motor Australia, says second cars are much more likely to get used for short journeys.

“The second vehicle has become a vital part of everyday life for many working families in Australia and deserves just as much appreciation as the main cars, which an MG HS Plus EV is perfectly suited to.”

With comfort and torque on tap, the ZS EV is a potential winner. Once you’ve driven one of these vehicles, you’ll understand the hustle of experiencing low-end torque in complete silence.

Concerns over range anxiety and ease of charging are dissipating as newer generations of EVs move the technology forward.

You’ve learned how to charge your smartphone. Now for your car.

EVs often get compared to smartphones. Society changed when smartphones took over from landlines, and now it’s happening with EVs.

We’ve moved well past the early days of EV technology. In fact, that was back in the 1890s, when the first practical electric vehicles appeared. Nowadays, the focus is on the infrastructure that surrounds EVs and the home charging station is the key to making it easy.

MG recently revealed a range of chargers that are available to purchase from more than 85 of its dealerships around Australia. It’s called the MG ChargeHub and is available in a 7kW single-phase version and an 11kW three-phase configuration.

As Peter Ciao says, “At MG, we’re committed to supporting our customers in any way we can, so we felt it made complete sense to add infrastructure to the products we provide for our electric vehicle and plug-in hybrid customers.”

“Recharging every day is especially simple with a ChargeHub. When you arrive home, you plug your vehicle in, and if you don’t want to, you don’t have to think about the charging process until the next time you want to drive. At that time, you simply unplug, hang up the charging cable, and drive off.”

It’s a simple system to learn and once you get used to it, it’s as easy as remembering to charge your smartphone. Gadget guys and girls, this is your sweet spot.

Value, efficiency and sustainability. Second nature for your second car.

Let’s dig deeper into this second car thing.

Value? The MG EV range is already getting attention as a bona fide affordable alternative. And to celebrate the role of second cars, MG is offering families the chance to get a rebate on a MG ChargeHub with the purchase of their second car.

According to the NRMA, on average, EV owners save from $810 to $1400 each year, providing savings of up to $7000 in just a five-year ownership period.

Australia has committed to net zero by 2050, and EVs will play a crucial role in achieving this target.

Efficiency? Maintenance on an EV is also cheaper than a petrol or diesel car. For example, the MG ZS EV comes with a seven-year unlimited kilometre warranty with fixed price servicing for peace of mind through the MG Precise Price Servicing plan.

So, if you’re thinking about adding a second vehicle and becoming an all-electric family, an MG ZS EV and HS Plus EV might be number one or two on your short list.
