Introducing MG’s latest ZS EV model

October 8, 2021

MG has pulled the wraps off the New MG ZS EV, which arrives in dealerships next month.

The renewed model builds on the success of the existing ZS EV, which is the brand’s best-selling pure electric model and a consistent fixture among the UK’s top 10 best-selling EVs.

The revised model makes the MG ZS EV even better and is characterised by a modernised design, improved performance, a significantly longer range, and even more technology.

It introduces a fresh 72kWh battery pack delivering a substantial range increase, as well as a new iSMART connectivity system, which brings state-of-the-art infotainment to the latest model.

In styling terms, the New MG ZS EV gets a new electric-only front end, with a stamped-effect grille to improve aerodynamics and a new side-opening charging port. The bold new face is set off by LED headlights and distinctive daytime running lights. It also gets a redesigned rear bumper and new wheels.

The New MG ZS EV will be offered in a choice of two trim levels and two battery variants. MG is introducing two new version names, starting with the new ZS EV – SE and Trophy.  The 72 kWh Long Range battery will offer a range of 273 miles compared with 163 miles for the existing model (based on WLTP measurements). A 51 kWh battery with a 198-mile range will join the line up next year.

Charging status is now readily viewed on the four stage indicator LEDs inside the charging port. The combination Type 2 and CCS charger provides up to 7kW fast charging using the on-board AC charger, or up to 76kW DC rapid charging (depending on climatic conditions). This means the Long Range 72 kWh battery can be charged from 0-100 per cent in 10.5 hours on a standard 7kW charger, or as little as 42 minutes on a 100kW rapid charger.

Every New MG ZS EV also comes with the latest state-of-the-art MG iSMART connectivity system, which offers a connection via a smartphone app, through which various car, climate, security and charging functions can be controlled remotely.

At the heart of the system is a 10.1-inch tablet-style touchscreen, with new graphics and improved functionality. The new model also gets a new instrument cluster, plus wireless phone charging on the Trophy model.

Prices for the New MG ZS EV will be announced soon.
