    MG ZS EV bookings to open on December 21

    The MG ZS EV prices will be announced in January 2020, and the carmaker will start accepting booking for the all-electric SUV from December 21, 2019. The ZS EV will be MG’s second product for India and it is expected to be priced around Rs 22 lakh (ex-showroom) as it will be brought in as a CKD (completely knocked down) unit. 

    As we reported previously, the MG ZS EV comes with a 44.5kWh battery pack that has an ARAI-certified range of 340km on a single charge. Power comes from a 143hp/353Nm electric motor that helps the SUV hit the ton in a claimed 8.5sec. The ZS EV’s liquid-cooled, lithium-ion battery can be charged to 80 percent (from zero) in 50min using a 50kW DC fast charger, which will be available at select MG showrooms. While a standard 7.4 kW AC home charger (provided by MG at the owner’s home or office) will take around 6-8 hours for a full charge, the EV also comes with a portable charging cable that can be used at any wall socket. Three levels of regenerative braking should also help keep range anxiety at bay, along with a mobile roadside assistance package that will be available if you ever run out of charge.

    Like the MG Hector, the ZS EV will also come with what the carmaker calls MG Shield, which encompasses a range of aftersales initiatives and warranty plans, though some will be unique to the all-electric SUV.

    MG Motor India’s got on the affordable EV train quite early – the only electric cars to precede MG’s EV are the Tata Tigor EV and the Hyundai Kona Electric. Click here to see how Hyundai’s EV and MG’s compare on paper.
