Kenderaan Elektrik MG5 Menjadi Sebahagian Armada Teksi England

Armada teksi paling hijau di UK menambah lima EV MG5 baharu ke dalam jadualnya.

MG yang lebih dikenali di England sebagai Morris Garage pernah menjadi pengeluar kereta Britain yang membanggakan sejak tahun 1920-an. Dengan rangkaian roadster dua pintu drop-top yang ceria, iaitu MGB GT, MG Midget dan jangan lupa MG Roadster dan beberapa sedan yang cukup elegan, MG adalah salah satu jenama kereta Britain yang paling cerah hingga tahun 2000. Ini adalah dari era sedan yang tidak boleh dipercayai dan bermasalah dan tentunya MG TF drop-top.

Masuk Ke China

Walaupun TF pada awalnya merupakan convertible terlaris Britain, MG mengalami kemerosotan kewangan dan telah memasuki pentadbiran pada tahun 2005. Pengeluaran berhenti dengan sewajarnya dan tidak lama selepas MG diambil alih oleh syarikat automotif China Nanjing Automobile dengan harga USD97 juta. Kemudian pada tahun 2007 Nanjing Automobile diambil alih oleh SAIC Motor (pengeluar kereta terbesar dari China) dan hasilnya anda sekarang mempunyai MG Cars yang dikenali sebagai MG Motor UK Limited.

Pulang Ke England

Sementara itu, kereta bertenaga bateri MG5 baru saja dipilih untuk menjadi sebahagian armada teksi kerana ruang bagasinya yang besar. MG 5 menggunakan motor elektrik tunggal yang menghantar kuasa ke roda depan melalui transmisi satu kelajuan. Enjin menghasilkan 154bhp dan tork maksimum 260Nm. Ini membolehkan pemandu memecut dari 0-100kn / jam dalam 7.7 saat dan mencapai kelajuan tertinggi 185km / j. Di England, ia dilengkapi dengan jaminan tujuh tahun atau 130,000 kilometer yang merangkumi pek bateri EVnya.

SIARAN MEDIA: A private hire and taxi firm that found fame by becoming one of the first to embrace electric car technology has added five MG5 EVs to its fleet.

Award-winning Premier Taxis was named GreenFleet Private Hire/Taxi Company of the year thanks to its EV initiative after it began operating electric taxis in 2015.

The new all-electric MGs replace Toyota Auris Hybrids on the Premier fleet and will be used across the Lancashire firm’s region, as well as airport transfers where the large luggage capacity comes in handy.

Premier Taxis Business Manager, Nikita Cutler, said: “The MG5 EV is great as it has a larger luggage capacity. This will come in handy as these vehicles are viable for airport transfers to Manchester, allowing us to offer customers the opportunity to use a Zero Emission airport transfer service for the first time.

“They will also be really handy for local journeys for those customers who have just been shopping, or for when we are collecting shopping for our most vulnerable customers during the Covid-19 pandemic.”

Premier Taxis is gradually converting its entire fleet to electric-only thanks to huge reductions in running costs as well as positive feedback from its passengers.

“The investment in new electric vehicles is money well spent as operating costs for the company and drivers have reduced while at the same time allowing us to contribute to improving the air quality around Lytham St. Annes, Blackpool and Wyre,” added Nikita. “Electric vehicles also require less day-to-day maintenance, further reducing cost.

“Our customers find them very comfortable, enjoy the smooth and quiet ride and some of them choose only to travel in a 100% Electric vehicle as they understand the difference Zero Emission travel can make to local air quality.”

Premier Taxis driver Steve Foster added: “I have already been managing more than 200 miles on a single charge. I plug the car in at home at 5pm and that will last me until the following day at 5pm.

“Our old cars cost £22 to get to Manchester Airport. With the MG it will cost hardly anything to complete the same trip so they make great sense for a taxi driver.”

MG’s ground-breaking MG5 EV went on sale in autumn 2020 and is the UK’s first and only all-electric SW model, with a luggage capacity of up to 1,456 litres (578 litres with rear seats up) and an EV-only range of 214 miles.

MG Motor’s Commercial Director, Guy Pigounakis, said: “The private hire and airport transfer market is one where MG5 EV has an amazing opportunity thanks to its unique market position as the only EV station wagon on the market. It also has the potential to offer huge savings to operators regardless of fleet size.”

MG currently offers three plug-in models in the UK – the established MG ZS EV, the game-changing All New MG5 EV and MG HS Plug-in, all backed up by MG’s incredible 7-year warranty* and fast-developing dealer network.

*Warranty for taxis – 3 year /60,000 miles.
