MG has revealed its new, improved version of the ZS EV, which arrives in the brand’s dealerships next month. The renewed model has a new look, but the bigger news is significantly longer range from a new 72kWh battery pack.
It will be offered with a choice of two trim levels and two battery variants. The 72 kWh Long Range will offer a range of 273 miles compared with 163 miles for the existing model (based on official WLTP measurements). A 51 kWh battery with a 198-mile range will be offered in the line up next year.
MG has also fixed many of the complaints from owners of the old model, with a new, easier to use charge flap and an 'iSMART connectivity system' which allows owners to set various functions from their smartphones. This allows the ZS to be pre-heated while still connected to the mains and to use a charge timer, improving efficiency and reducing costs.
