Bold lines, a confident stance and sporty detailing. The MG ZS EV is every bit the assured crossover. Exuding a sense of adventure that will excite the most curious of motorists, there’s no challenge too great. Its front end is dominated by a large grille.
The MG badge sits in the centre, underneath which is the vehicle’s charging point. A curved bonnet and raked windscreen lead to a sweeping roof that comes with roof bars for added practicality. The wide-opening boot makes loading and unloading luggage easy, while the colour palette includes striking hues such as Luxury Aqua Cyan and Luxury Red Diamond.
Sleek simplicity is the theme in the MG ZS EV’s interior.
The clean, uncluttered dash ensures unfettered access to all functions and dials, and the multifunction steering wheel features controls for the multimedia system, cruise control and more. Premium materials deliver the utmost comfort, and soft-touch plastics make you feel at home. With space to seat five and a slightly bigger boot than its fuel counterparts, the MG ZS EV is even more practical than its siblings too.
Of course, an all-electric powertrain means zero emissions and highly cost-effective motoring, which is a big draw for many drivers. Efficiency doesn’t mean a compromise on performance though.
This sprightly crossover comes alive and sprints from 0-100km/h in just 8.2 seconds, and can achieve 335km NEDC, and 263km WLTE, on a single charge. It’s also equipped with fast charging, which means the battery can be recharged to 80% capacity in just 40 minutes. With 148hp and 350Nm of torque at your disposal too, you’re sure to enjoy a dynamic drive.
The MG ZS EV’s trim is based on the 1.5-litre version of its fuel powered sibling. That means drivers get plenty of cutting-edge kit for their money.
The infotainment system features an eight-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility. Range-topping LUX models add a rear camera with dynamic guidance lines to make parking simpler, as well as an electrically adjustable driver’s seat to help you find the perfect position in seconds.
This clever electric crossover will keep you safe out on the road thanks to its many protective features.
A 5 StarENCAP Safety Rating provides peace of mind, and active measures include ABS, EBD, hill assistance and auto hold. Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keep Assistance are also present to assist with long distance journeys. Passive features include six airbags for complete protection in the event of a collision.
