If you’re after an electric car with a decent range, enough room for a family, a high level of standard kit and a low price, this could be the model for you. It’s also comfy and has punchy acceleration, and while other rivals may be more refined and luxurious inside most of them cost a lot more money.

Entry-level SE trim is generously equipped, with keyless start and keyless entry, air-con, 16in alloy wheels, front and rear electric windows, silver-coloured roof rails, adaptive cruise control, automatic lights and an automatic electric parking brake. This is the cheapest and most recommendable trim.

All MG5 EVs get an electric motor with 154bhp and a 57kWh (usable) battery pack that’s good for an official WLTP combined range of 250 miles – but expect more like 200 miles in real-world driving conditions. Performance is punchy compared to rivals and the range is pretty decent.
