The interior of the MG ZS EV is clean and clutterfree and it gets the latest i-Smart 2.0 system.

While the interior of the new MG ZS EV remains identical to the predecessor, there have been some upgrades in its features list. So the new MG ZS EV sources the i-Smart 2.0 system from MG Hector which is an advanced version of the i-Smart system in its predecessor. Then it is equipped with the same 8.0-inch touchscreen and three driving modes - Sport, Normal and Eco. Then it is also equipped with a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, rain-sensing front wiper, cruise control, auto headlights, power-adjustable driver seat, push-button start-stop with smart entry, electronic gear knob and PM filter among others.

As far as safety features are concerned, first of all we should note that the battery in the MG ZS EV is IP6 certified so it can tackle various terrains. Then it gets six airbags, ABS, brake assist, ESC, electric parking brake, tyre pressure monitor, ISOFIX mounts, hill start assist, hill descent control, rear camera, parking sensors and heated wing mirrors among others.

The carmaker claims that the battery pack offers a maximum range of up to 419 km when fully charged. It can clock triple-digit speeds in just 8.5 seconds thanks to power electronic (PE) solutions from UAES. The company claims that the SUV can be fully charged in six-eight hours through a standard AC charger. However, the 50kW DC fast charger is capable of providing the juice up to 80 per cent in just 50 minutes.
