    2025 MG eHS: Everything we know about the new Tesla Model Y Rival

Under the management of the Shanghai group SAIC Motor se MG Motors revival gains momentum with spectacular increase of sales in many markets. One of MG’s best sellers, the electrified Marvel R mid-size SUV, is set to be replaced with recently released patent images showing a completely new look.

Our sources also point to a potential new name for MG’s Tesla Model Y competitor, with “eHS” appearing to be the emerging nomenclature – or at least part of it. So what, you want to know more? Read on as we visually explore everything we know about MG’s upcoming electric car.

MG’s marketing division places great emphasis on infusing its own design DNA into its range British heritage. Noble ambitions, but sadly they miss the mark with a range that could belong to almost any car company – the styling is just too generic. It’s not all bad news though, as the eHS draws influence from the sharply styled and well-proportioned the upcoming MG3 hatch.

The front has a shark nose grille with a dominant lower grille and slim Matrix LED headlights. Moving to the side, you’ll see gently scalloped doors, front fender flares with side cameras (I wonder where they got that idea) and a greenhouse with more than a hint of a Hyundai Tucson.

At the rear, the SUV features an elegant arrangement of full-width LED taillights with chrome detailing and a stylized Union Jack connector on the outer lenses. A contrast insert that moves further down surrounds the rear deflectors and is decorated with a horizontal chrome strip.

According to our sources, it is possible that the next generation model will switch to the Modular Scalable Platform (MSP), also known as Nebula. Unlike its predecessor, the eHS will be produced in right-hand drive due to MG’s strong demand in similar markets AustraliaNew Zealand and the United Kingdom.

Optimized for single-motor, rear-wheel drive and dual-motor all-wheel drive configurations, the MSP platform promises versatility and increased performance.

While no interior images are available, the eHS is expected to feature a higher-quality 5-seater cabin with a floating 10.25″ digital touchscreen paired with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a suite of “MG Pilot” active safety assistants.

Performance enhancement

eHS will improve current Marvel R’s powertrain options, which by comparison include a rear-wheel drive model with 178 hp (132 kW) and 410 Nm (302.4 lb-ft) of torque, and a three-motor Performance variant with 288 hp (212 kW) and 665 Nm ( 490 lb-ft). The latter is unlikely to return, with the option of a higher-output twin engine set to top the range.

Battery module size and charging options are still unknown. Still, we do know that the new platform can accommodate up to 150kWh of battery capacity – more than double the size of the 70kWh pack in the current MG Marvel R, good for a range of up to 370km or 230 miles according to the WLTP range.

EV Rivals and Reveal

Intended to create a competitive niche in the electric SUV market, the eHS system will rival rivals such as Ford Mustang Mach-ETesla Model Y, Hyundai Ioniq 5, Either EV5Toyota BZ4X, Nissan Ariya, Volkswagen ID.4 and one of BYD’s bizarrely aquatic offerings, the Sea lion 07.

An official reveal is likely within the next few months as a 2024 model, while right-hand drive production will begin in 2025. Unfortunately, North American consumption is still off the table for MG for now.

Should MG and its latest EV come to North America? We’d love to know what you think in the comments below.
