With an overhaul in its design, the facelifted MG ZS EV has a new 72-kWh Long Range battery offering 439 km of range on a full charge. That’s a significant bump over the current model that’s on sale in India. MG has replaced the real grille with a new stamped-effect grille that will also improve the car’s aerodynamics.
In addition to the above changes, it also features a new set of alloy wheels and a new rear bumper. If you did notice even the charging port’s position has changed, it now sits on the new stamped-effect grille. Speaking of charging, you can charge the ZS EV from 0 to 100 per cent in 10 hours 30 minutes using a 7-kW standard charger or use a 100-kW rapid charger and get the range back to 100 per cent in 42 minutes. That’s spectacular considering it’s a 72-kWh battery. MG says that it is also going to offer a 51-kWh battery that will have a range of 319 km.
As far as features are concerned, you get a 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen with new graphics and improved functionality according to MG. Plus, the instrument cluster has also been updated. It even gets wireless smartphone charging on the top-spec (Trophy) variant. Also, with the MG cars in India, there’s iSMART connectivity that offers you control via a smartphone app; it will control various features on the car like climate, security and charging functions. Since this is only unveiled in the UK at the moment, we’ll have to patiently wait for it in India.
