The forthcoming electric MG 4 hatchback, due later this year, is expected to be very similar in design to the Chinese-market MG Mulan, unveiled this week.
The 4 was previewed in February, with the image hinting that the new arrival will feature radical design cues.
MG gave few details of the 4 at the time, but it did confirm it measures 4300mm long - a similar size to the Kia e-Niro – and "is developed with the UK consumer in mind".
For the Mulan, MG has claimed a 4.0sec 0-62mph time. However, this hasn't been confirmed for the 4.
The Mulan will also be the first EV built on SAIC’s Nebula platform, meaning it will be rear-wheel-drive.
No battery information has been released for the 4, but it's expected to get something similar to the packs offered in the ZS EV: 51kWh for 198 miles and 73kWh for 273 miles.
Yet it could also be broadly identical to the latest iteration of the 5 EV, with a front-mounted 154bhp motor giving a 0-62mph time of around 7.0sec and a 57.7kWh battery that's good for some 250 miles - figures that would line it up as a viable rival to the Ora Funky Cat, another Chinese hatchback due on sale in the UK this year.
The Mulan also features a wrap-around rear light bar, which was visible in the teaser video for the MG 4.
The MG 4's size places it neatly between the current MG 3 – which is set to be replaced in the coming months by an all-new electric supermini – and the 5 estate, which makes it likely this new car will be called the 4. Indeed, a link posted to MG's Twitter feed redirects to a URL containing the phrase 'MG 4 tease'.
