The China-owned British manufacturer has set the sales figures on fire right from its debut in India, by launching MG Hector. And now by launching the MG ZS EV, it has stood firmly in India. MG ZS EV manages to bag 2100 pre-orders in just 27 days. So how did it become India’s favourite EV? Let’s check it out on our full story below.
MG ZS EV Specifications
MG ZS EV is India’s first electric SUV as said by the company. It comes with electric power train of the battery capacity of 44.5kWh producing about 142.7 PS / 141 bhp of max power and 353 Nm of max torque. The claimed range is about 340 km but we expect it to return the range of 275 – 300 km in real-world conditions, which is good indeed for a daily commute. 0 – 100 km acceleration comes in remarkably 8.5 sec due to its instant torque character. From the exterior MG ZS EV looks pretty aggressive, it gets LED DRLs at the front and 17-inch alloy wheels. The alloy wheels look sturdy and premium. The stance of the car is SUV styled so it looks enormous than it is.
MG ZS EV Features
Interior is one of the big remarkable advantages for MG ZS EV. Leather-covered seats, armrest, steering wheel makes it premium enough to grab your attention. It comes with 8.9 cm multi-info display and a 60:40 rear split seats. MG ZS EV comes with a long list of features which includes rain-sensing wiper, huge panoramic sunroof, smart entry, cruise control etc. To know the full list of features you may check it out in our detailed review below. MG calls Hector a “human thing” because of its internet smart connectivity and assistant. A similar type of connectivity is carried in ZS EV as well.
EV Charging statistics
Parallel to all these features, MG will provide a free AC fast charger at home or office free of cost. This AC fast charger will charge 0 – 80 % battery in 6 – 8 hours. You will also get a portable charger which can be plugged into any 15 A socket, charging 0 – 80 % in 16 -18 hours. Or you may simply plug your car at any MG dealership which will charge 0 – 80 % your car in just 50 minutes. MG is expected to launch it around 20 lakh ex-showroom with 5 years warranty on the car and 8 years warranty on the battery. Which is sufficiently enough considering its running cost. Currently, ZS EV is available in Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Delhi NCR Hyderabad and Mumbai. It will expand its availability in other cities later on in the coming years.
So looking all these gigantic offerings from MG why wouldn’t anyone consider it as a value for money product. Concluding all these parameters its OK to say that it is surely India’s favourite EV.
