2020 MG ZS EV

2020 MG ZS EV

MG Motor UK announced its entry into the zero-emissions vehicle market with the first truly affordable, family friendly electric car. The sensational MG ZS EV has been designed to bring EV technology to a wider audience than ever before and represents an exciting new chapter in the MG story. ZS EV is MG's most high-tech car ever, with the MG Pilot driver assistance suite setting new standards of specification and delivering exceptional value for money. MG ZS EV combines the spacious and practical design of the original ZS with a clean, efficient and dynamic electric powertrain. And with the first 1,000 retail customers being able to get behind the wheel from just £21,495, MG is bringing zero-emissions motoring to the people. With a combined WLTP certified range of 163 miles and frequent rapid charging capability, families can enjoy the freedom to go anywhere in an electric car. MG is also proud to be offering ZS EV with its famous 7-year warranty which covers the car and the lithium-ion battery.

Packed with innovative features, MG ZS EV is designed to provide customers with a stress-free driving experience. MG Pilot is a driver assistance suite which complements the driver and offers support when required. Excite and Exclusive versions both include MG Pilot as standard, with features including Advanced Emergency Braking, Blindspot Monitoring, Lane Keep Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control.

ZS EV majors on interior space, making it ideal for busy families and those who value practicality. Boasting some of the most generous shoulder, leg and headroom in its class, the MG ZS EV also features a substantial, full-sized boot. With hidden storage areas, a split-level boot and practical features to keep items secure on the move, ZS EV can handle bikes, pushchairs, luggage and bulky loads with no trouble at all. In the cabin, the sky really is the limit with the panoramic, sliding Sky Roof offering uninterrupted access to the sunshine above, creating a bright and airy experience for the whole family.

MG ZS EV - Made for the family

At last, a stylish, practical electric vehicle that's made with family in mind. ZS EV offers everything the modern family needs for the school run, weekend sports matches and adventures in the great British countryside with man's best friend.

With some of the most generous shoulder, leg and headroom in its segment, MG ZS EV offers a premium travelling experience for driver and passenger alike - providing around 55mm additional rear shoulder room and 80mm more rear headroom than the segment average. Thanks to the greater space provided by a flat floor, it's been possible to integrate additional floating storage under the centre console.

An incredible 448 litres of boot capacity (some 60 litres larger than the typical compact-SUV) - plus a split-level boot - provides plenty of room for prams, luggage, outdoor leisure equipment or the weekly shop. Keen cyclists and adventure sports fans will benefit from numerous compartments throughout the car, which provide additional storage, as well as folding seats to accommodate bigger, bulkier items. ZS EV does it all.

MG ZS Is Electric - Battery, motor, range and charging

Powered by a 44.5kWh, water-cooled lithium-ion battery, customers can enjoy a driving range of up to 163 miles from a single charge on the WLTP combined cycle. Using WLTP's city cycle the range is certified at 231 miles. ZS EV also offers three levels of regenerative braking to recover energy and increase range. When the driver releases the accelerator the car's electric motor converts the kinetic energy that would otherwise be lost during standard braking into electricity. The additional charge is fed back into the battery, maximising the efficiency of the car and allowing the driver to travel further between charges. Drivers can choose the degree of energy recovery that suits their driving style and efficiency needs.

Using a control switch in front of the gear selector, the driver can pick from three levels of intensity, as well as turn the system off. Level one will implement a small amount of regeneration, with much of the braking still dependent on the vehicle's brakes. Level three offers the greatest regenerative benefit, offering near one-pedal driving with minimal need for the brakes, improving the lifespan of the parts, increasing efficiency and reducing ownership costs. The battery pack is comprised of 18 cells and weighs just 280kg, providing competitive performance without generating any emissions.

Managed by MG's Intelligent Battery Temperature Control system, the battery pack is insulated from external temperature variations, delivering the optimum power and range whatever the weather. Driven by a permanent magnet synchronous electric motor mounted above the front axle, ZS EV delivers 353 Nm of instant torque to the road via the front wheels. With 105 kW of power, the equivalent of 143 PS, MG ZS EV will accelerate from 0-62 mph in 8.5 seconds, reaching a top speed of 87 mph.

Peace of Mind - Warranty and aftersales

MG is pleased to offer its famous 7-year / 80,000-mile warranty on ZS EV, and it applies to the lithium-ion battery too. The generous package gives customers complete peace of mind, guaranteeing that fully trained MG technicians will always be on hand with genuine replacement MG parts. Drivers can be confident that MG ZS EV's long manufacturer warranty reflects the high build quality and customer care on which the manufacturer has built its reputation. The 7-year warranty is available on ZS EV from launch and is even fully transferrable to future owners.

MG now has a dealer network of over 100 sites, providing national coverage across the UK. To support the launch of MG ZS EV, as well as future hybrid and battery electric products by the brand, MG has already implemented its extensive Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Standards. These standards include an overview of hybrid and electric vehicle training, as well as requirements for electric vehicle charging at dealership sites.

MG's Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Standards ensure that every MG dealership features a minimum of two on-site charging points - a 7kW wall-mounted charging point in the workshop and a 22kW charge point close to the showroom entrance. The Standards equip MG's existing sales staff and technicians with the knowledge to support customers in both the sale and aftersales care of electric cars. Thanks to the introduction of a nationally recognised Electric Vehicle Awareness training course, dealership staff and technicians are provided with information on safe working practices.
