The all-new MG ZS EV is proof an electric car needn’t cost the earth. It’s powered by a mighty 44.5 kWh battery pack, which delivers a 163-mile WLTP range and charges from zero to 80% in 40 minutes at a 50kWh station. With 140bhp and 260 lb-ft of torque, it’s surprisingly rapid and fun to drive. What’s also a surprise is the boot capacity, which is the same as the petrol model thanks to some clever MG design. Choose from Excite or Exclusive trim levels, with a panoramic glass sunroof and leather seats on Exclusive models. MG Pilot comes as standard, with Advanced Emergency Braking, Blindspot Monitoring, Lane Keep Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control.
ZS EV Features
The MG ZS EV doesn’t shout about being electric, but even so it stands out with a unique front grille, alloy wheels and upholstery. It looks the part, beautifully sculpted and proportioned to fit in anywhere.
The interior is built to last. Chunky buttons and switchgear highlight this, but the cabin isn’t without its luxuries. Exclusive models have leather upholstery and a glass panoramic sunroof for a touch of class.
Range and charging
In WLTP tests the MG ZS EV returned a range of 163-miles which means you can expect that amount with normal driving. You can charge up at home overnight with a 7kWh charger or in an hour at a 50kWh station.
With instant power and torque available at any speed, the MG ZS EV picks up and accelerates briskly. It’s great fun around town, going from 0-30mph in 3 seconds flat for a podium finish at the traffic light grand prix.
MG Pilot is a standard feature across the range. It includes Advanced Emergency Braking, Blindspot Monitoring, Lane Keep Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control to keep you safe and sound out on your adventures.
An 8” touchscreen infotainment system is standard with satellite navigation, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Bluetooth is also standard and there’s two USB ports up front for charging your devices.
Exclusive models have heated front seats, electric driver’s seat adjustment, power-folding door mirrors and a rear parking camera. All models feature iGo navigation, keyless entry, and front and rear electric windows.
The car itself and the lithium-ion battery are covered by MG’s comprehensive 7-year / 80,000-mile warranty for complete peace of mind. There’s also no mileage restriction in the first year.
