How is HS PHEV different from HS?
The Plug-in-hybrid variant of HS is called MG HS PHEV. It means the car would have a 1500cc Turbocharged engine as well as a charging port like electric vehicles. So, you can drive the car on both fuel and electric power. This is better for countries like Pakistan where the charging infrastructure is still under development and people want a fuel-efficient replacement for the former fuel-based car for environmentally-friendly electric vehicles. According to the company’s Facebook post, car’s, “cutting-edge technology and top-rated safety systems offer a superior driving experience under the concept of British dynamic, combining performance, handling, design, and safety.”
The picture posted by Javed Afridi today on Twitter shows 3 features of the car:
- SUV will have a 370 Nm Torque.
- SUV will do 0-100 km/h in 7.1 seconds.
- The company claims 55 KM/L mileage
