Wake up Volvo, MG already made the world’s first electric station wagon


Volvo missed something and sullied its name by not being the first to make an all-electric station wagon (it’s a station wagon for you Brits). In fact, that title went to MG, the former British brand which is now owned by SAIC in China.

Called MG5, the electric wagon is slated for release in Europe in October this year. Details are pretty scarce at the moment, but MG says more will be announced closer to the car’s official launch.

MG however announced the most important detail, it is the size of the trunk. The Anglo-Chinese brand claims that the rear storage capacity is around 578 liters, which is 83 liters more than what you get in a BMW 3 Series Tourer for reference.

All we need to go through for now are the renderings below, but I wouldn’t expect the final version to be too different. MG really has nothing to gain by outventing the MG5 now, but to disappoint later down the line.
