Re: MG battery factory

As I need to go EV later in the year because of the withdrawal of hybrids from the London Congestion Charge exemption, I was also very impressed by the MG as an option - especially the MG5 estate (I need the carrying capacity) but I would miss the paddles and it can't mount roof bars. :o The other o...
