The MG ZS EV is getting more modern and desirable with every update. It comes as a sportier and more upmarket model even more so with the way the cabin has been put together and claims its EV status more handsomely with the way it looks. It is priced slightly on the higher side but in exchange for that the brand is offering a good range and yes some quick charging times.

MG ZS EV Expert Review

line

The new MG ZS EV is an all-electric SUV that has a lot to offer. It has a stylish design, a comfortable interior, and a range of features that make it a great choice for those looking for an electric vehicle.

How is the Design?

The design of the MG ZS EV is very modern and sleek. The car looks very stylish and would be perfect for anyone who is looking for a new car. The interior of the car is also very well designed and is comfortable for passengers.

How does it perform?

The MG ZS EV is a pretty good electric car. It's not the best, but it's not the worst either. Its range is good, its performance is good, and its price is good. However, there are a few things that could be improved. For example, the car's design is a bit dated and it doesn't have the best interior. Additionally, the build quality could be better. But overall, the MG ZS EV is a decent electric car.

What’s the range?

The MG ZS EV is a pure electric SUV with a WLTP-certified range of 255 miles, making it perfect for long journeys and daily commutes alike. With its state-of-the-art 50kWh battery, the MG ZS EV can be charged to 80% in just 45 minutes using a rapid charger, or from 0-100% in just over six hours from a standard home wall box.

The MG ZS EV also comes with a host of other features designed to make your life easier, including an infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, fast-charging capability and a wireless smartphone charger.

How’s the Driving Experience?

The MG ZS EV is a great car to drive. It’s comfortable and practical, with a range of over 300 miles on a single charge. But how does it feel to drive an electric car?

The first thing you notice is the silence. With no engine noise, the only sound you hear is the whoosh of the tires on the road. This can take some getting used to, but it’s actually quite relaxing.

Acceleration is smooth and linear, with no gear changes to interrupt the flow. And because there’s no engine, there’s no need to rev the car to get going – just press the accelerator and off you go.

Brakes are also very different in an electric car. Rather than using friction to slow down, electric cars use regenerative braking. This means that when you lift your foot off the accelerator, the car starts to slow down automatically. It takes a bit of getting used to, but once you do, it’s a really useful feature as it helps to recharge the battery while you’re driving.
Overall, driving an electric car is a very different experience to driving a petrol or diesel car.

What’s the interior like?

If you’re looking for an all-electric SUV that’s both stylish and practical, then the MG ZS EV might just be the perfect car for you. Although it’s not as large as some of its rivals, the ZS EV still offers plenty of space for five adults to travel in comfort. And with a boot capacity of 255 litres, there’s plenty of room for all your shopping or luggage too.

When it comes to the interior, MG have really gone above and beyond to create a modern and luxurious feel. The seats are upholstered in high quality leather, and there’s an 8-inch touchscreen display those controls everything from the infotainment system to the climate control. And if you opt for the top-of-the-range Exclusive trim level, you’ll even get features like heated front seats and a panoramic sunroof.

Tech and infotainment

As we all know, the MG ZS EV is a highly anticipated electric SUV that is set to be released in 2019. While we don't know much about the car yet, we do know that it will come with some amazing tech and infotainment features.

Here are some things that we are excited about:

1. The car will come with an advanced touchscreen infotainment system that will support both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This means that you'll be able to control all of your music, navigation, and other apps from the comfort of your car.

2. The car will also come with a built-in WiFi hotspot, so you can stay connected even when you're on the go.

3. One of the coolest features of the MG ZS EV is its "smart" charging capabilities. The car will be able to automatically charge itself when it's connected to a power source, so you'll never have to worry about running out of juice.

4. The car will also come with a host of safety features, including blind spot monitoring, lane keeps assist, and adaptive cruise control.

Battery Capacity and electric motors

The new MG ZS EV is a battery electric vehicle (BEV) with a pure-electric range of up to 262 miles from its 44.5 kWh lithium-ion battery. It is powered by two electric motors, one at the front and one at the rear, which together produce 143 PS and 350 Nm of torque. The ZS EV can accelerate from 0-62 mph in 8.5 seconds and has a top speed of 87 mph.

The MG ZS EV is available in two trim levels: Excite and Exclusive. Standard equipment on the Excite includes 16-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, heated front seats, air conditioning, cruise control, and a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The Exclusive trim adds 18-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, heated rear seats, a panoramic sunroof, and a 10-speaker Bose sound system.

The MG ZS EV comes with a 7kW onboard charger as standard which can charge the battery from 20-80% in 6 hours 45 minutes. An optional 22kW fast charger is also available which can charge the battery from 20-80%

Safety Equipment

When it comes to safety, the MG ZS EV is equipped with a variety of features to keep you and your passengers safe. For starters, there are six airbags - including front, side and curtain airbags. Additionally, the car has Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Traction Control (TC) and Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) - all of which work together to help you stay in control of the vehicle, even in tough driving conditions. Other safety features include a Rear View Camera, Emergency Brake Assist and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System.

What’s thew warranty on battery?

The MG ZS EV comes with an 8-year/100,000-mile battery warranty.

Which Cars Compete in this Segment?

The MG ZS EV is a plug-in hybrid SUV that was introduced in 2019. It is based on the same platform as the regular ZS, but with an electrified powertrain. The ZS EV is available in China and Europe, and it competes with other plug-in hybrid SUVs such as the BMW X5 xDrive40e, Volvo XC90 T8, and Mercedes-Benz GLC350e.

Verdict

The MG ZS EV is a great electric car. It has plenty of range, and is very efficient. However, it does have a few drawbacks. The biggest one is the price tag. At over $40,000, it is one of the most expensive electric cars on the market. Additionally, the ZS EV is only available in a handful of countries. If you're looking for an electric car with great range and efficiency, but don't want to spend a lot of money, the MG ZS EV may not be the best option for you.
