Going by its dimensions, the ZS EV is a compact SUV like the Hyundai Creta and fits below the Hector in terms of positioning. It is 4314 mm long, 1809 mm wide and stands 1620 mm tall while the wheelbase is 2579 mm. Even looking at its overall appearance and silhouette, it classifies more as crossover than a SUV. Upfront, it gets a wide chrome stud grille flanked by projector headlamps and LED tail lamps at the rear. The cabin is finished in black and there are silver inserts on the dash, door pads and circular air-con vents on both ends which give it a premium feel. The MG ZS EV gets an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple Carplay and Android Auto. There's a flat-bottomed steering wheel, USB mobile charging at the front and rear, bluetooth functionality and even a rear-view camera. The sunroof covers 90 per cent of the roof and it is equipped with I Smart EV 2.0 connected car technology. The MG ZS EV comes with a PM 2.5 air filter which can bring bad air quality level of up to 300 AQI down to regular levels in just 35 mins.

MG Motor is also providing multiple charging solutions for the ZS EV including a road side charging assistance, just in case the SUV runs out of charge on the go. These services definitely gives it enough edge to rival the likes of the Hyundai Kona which is it core competitor in India as yet. We expect the ZS EV to be priced around ₹ 22 lakh in India.
