Since the official introduction of the ZS EV at the London Motor Show and the price announcement last week, the eagerly anticipated all-electric family SUV has already attracted a surge of interest from the media and customers alike. So far, MG has already taken over 750 orders for the ZS EV in the first week since its launch.
With the ZS EV, MG built on the resounding success and practicality of the petrol ZS to create what it claims is the first truly affordable, family friendly electric car. A 44.5 kWh lithium-ion battery, combined WLTP-certified range of 163 miles and rapid charging capability mean that families can enjoy ultimate freedom with efficient, zero-emissions mobility. Furthermore, this battery electric SUV is the most high-tech MG to date and features the MG Pilot driver assistance a suite.
The vehicle is equipped with a panoramic, sliding Sky Roof offering uninterrupted access to the sunshine above, creating a bright and airy cabin experience.
“We’ve already seen an excellent reaction from the public and, as a car designed to be the perfect partner for any family, we’re certain that festival-goers will be able to see what all the buzz is about for themselves” said Daniel Gregorious, Head of Sales & Marketing at MG.
The ZS EV will go on sale on 1st September and comes with a 7 Year Warranty. The first 1,000 retail customers will be able to order the car from £21,495 for the Excite trim or £23,495 for the Exclusive version.
