i don't know if i ended up in the right place here, if not, sorry lol i currently own a bmw 225 hybrid and am considering buying a MG hybrid MG EHS (i think) if I understand correctly this car is not available yet? or are there countries where it can be obtained or tested? I would have liked to know what the consumption is with an empty battery, for the BMW that is quite high

MG HS PHEV is available in the UK but not read much from owners yet: ZS EV and now MG5 seem more popular.

It seems to manage 30-35miles on electric. Under ICE power I suspect it will be worse than the 225xe, so perhaps 35 miles per gallon (12-13km/litre)
Yep , 35mls /gallon is worse than de 225xe :(
The HS is more powerful, has 10 gears rather than 6, is a bigger car, and has a much bigger battery/electric range.

It does not have AWD though: it is front-wheel drive only, and the heating system is connected to the ICE rather than having an electric heater - this means the ICE will kick in on very cold days if you need heating, even on short journeys.

@EV_geezer I presume the 20.7km/litre (~58 miles per gallon) includes EV miles - remove them and I suspect it will be closer to 12-13 😉
Whatever suits your imaginary calculator - a regular HS gets 15 to 20 km/l, so since we are all doing wild guessing here, I venture to guess the hybrid version could exceed that. Of course there is a data point somewhere where your guess is also on the mark - e.g. doing 150+ km/h lead foot cruising. :)
WLTP is 38.7mpg (usually optimistic slightly) which is 13.6km per litre.

I see you're in Thailand - perhaps lower average speed than in Europe, and 30°C helps a bit?

Once the battery was empty my 225xe was managing 40mpg at highway speeds.
I linked a video from Miles Roberts on another post you created with a review of the HS.
