A practical, value for money electric car from MG
The ZS EV is MG’s first electric car and has been designed as an affordable and family-friendly SUV. The ZS EV is an ideal choice if you want to make the switch to electric and you like the space and practicality of a compact SUV. The car’s spacious interior seats 5 passengers and has a large boot for family adventures or trips to the supermarket.
Vehicle Features & Technology
MG’s new electric vehicle is fitted with plenty of technology including their new-generation infotainment system, with an 8” colour touchscreen featuring navigation, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth connectivity with audio streaming and DAB radio. The ZS EV also has three driving modes and different regenerative braking strengths, allowing you to adapt the ‘one-pedal’ driving style if required.
The ZS is available in two trim options which are ‘Excite’ and ‘Exclusive’. ‘Excite’ is a well equipped base model including 17″ Alloys, Advanced Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning System and Adaptive Cruise Control.
The premium ‘Exclusive’ model will include extra features such as a panoramic sky roof, 6 speakers enhanced sound system, rear parking cameras, leather upholstery, heated front seats and upgraded air conditioning system.
The MG ZS EV has been given a 5 star Euro NCAP (European New Car Assessment Programme) safety rating: detailed results, crash test pictures, videos and comments from experts
Just a few of the ZS’ safety features:
- AEB* Pedestrian
- AEB Cyclist
- AEB City
- AEB Inter-Urban
- Speed Assistance

*Much like anti-lock-brakes (ABS), Autonomous Emergency Braking is becoming increasingly common in cars, with many manufacturers fitting a system as standard.
With a 44.5kWh lithium-ion battery, the MG ZS has an official driving range of 163 miles (WLTP) to a full charge. When charging this electric vehicle, you access the charging port via MG’s distinctive star-rider grille. On a typical home charger (7kW) the ZS EV will gain 100% battery charge in around 6 hours 30 mins. If you’re charging on the go using a rapid charger (50kW), your battery can be topped up to 80% capacity in approximately 45 minutes.
