The ZS EV uses a 44.5kWh lithium-ion battery and an electric motor with a performance rating of 143PS and 353Nm. That’s good for a 0-100kmph time of 8.5 seconds. MG will supply a free 7.4kWh wallbox charger that can be installed at home or office which would charge the battery from empty to full in 6 to 8 hours. There is also a portable charger that can be plugged into a regular 15A power socket but that would take 16-18 hours for a full charge. The ZS EV can be charged from DC fast chargers at MG dealerships with AC fast charging also at various MG dealers in non-metrolpolitan cities.

The MG ZS EV is a well-equipped electric SUV offering plenty of creature comforts. It gets features like an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, power-adjustable ORVMs, cruise control, projector headlamps, 6 airbags and auto AC as standard. The top-spec variant adds a panoramic sunroof, PM 2.5 filter built into the AC, connected car technology, heated ORVMs, leatherette upholstery and a 6-way power adjustable driver’s seat to the mix.

MG is offering the ZS EV with a 5-year/unlimited kilometres warranty with roadside assistance while the battery is covered for 8 years or1.5 lakh km, whichever comes first.
