    Production-spec MG ZS EV showcased at NuGen Mobility Summit

    MG Motor India is all set to introduce its second product in the domestic market – and its first electric SUV – the ZS EV. The company will showcase the model to the Indian media and general public on December 5, 2019. However, the company displayed the vehicle at the ongoing NuGen Mobility Summit 2019 held in Manesar, conducted by The International Center of Automotive Technology (ICAT). The conference was inaugurated by Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH); and Shipping Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, Nitin Gadkari.

     Coming back to the ZS EV, the electric SUV is likely to come with a 150hp electric motor that will draw power from a 44.5kWh lithium-ion battery. In this spec, the e-SUV has a range of 335km on the older NEDC test cycle and 262km on the newer WLTP test cycle. Charging time is expected to be around 7hr for full charge via a 7kW AC charger; while it will take 40min to charge from 0-80 percent with a 50kW DC fast charger.

     The ZS EV will be assembled in India to keep pricing competitive. Pricing for the MG ZS EV will hover around Rs 22 lakh mark (ex-showroom). It will see key rivalry from the likes of the Hyundai Kona EV that is priced at Rs 25.3 lakh in India. The ZS EV will be initially sold only in five cities – namely Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Bengaluru and Ahmedabad.
