Revealed in the 2018 Guangzhou Motor Show. The ZS EV is MG first production electric car, and is based on the existing MG ZS.
It has a single electric motor driving the front wheels and producing 148 bhp and 350 Nm—enough to take the 4.3-metre-long crossover from 0-31 mph in 3.1 seconds, 0–60 in 8.5 seconds. Battery size is 45kWh with declared WLTP ranges of 163 miles for combined and 231 miles for city. UK versions of the ZS EV have CCS charging (via a charging socket located at the front of the car, behind the MG badge) and reviewers are reporting charging rates of up to 80 kW but this has not been confirmed by MG.
Standard equipment in the ZS EV models includes adaptive cruise control and collision avoidance.
