MG asserts itself …
While the brand has only been with us since mid-2019, it continues to surprise us with its well-crafted strategy of conquest.
Today, MG offers us an update of its flagship model, the ZS EV. It differs from the first generation through a more sharp and modern style. How not to notice this new facies with a full grille, more aerodynamic. She seems to be inspired by South Korean models like the Be e-Niro and Hyundai Kona electric. It matches perfectly with the LED optics and the new shield. Note that the charging hatch is now placed next to and not under the logo.
In the stern, we notice a new light signature and a more urban style bumper with the disappearance of the lower skid plate. In profile, the changes will mainly be seen by the adoption of new more aerodynamic rims.
In the interior, the changes are also significant. The needle counters are replaced by a 7-inch digital instrument panel. Right next to it, in the center of the dashboard, we find an 8 to 10.1 inch touchscreen. It operates a new iSmart infotainment system, compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This can be connected to an application preinstalled on your smartphone, to take note of charging information or transmit its route on the GPS.
ZS EV my 2022, for a longer trip
MG completely reviews its engine / battery couple.
The first version of the vehicle was only offered with a 143 horsepower engine for 353 Nm of torque, all coupled with a 44.5 kWh battery. A set that brought its autonomy to 263 km in the WLTP cycle.
The new MG ZS EV now offers a choice.
The choice of its battery.
The MG ZS EV Autonomie Standard acquires a 50 kWh battery. It supplies the electrons to a 177 horsepower engine for 280 Nm of torque. This version is approved for a 320 km range.
The MG ZS EV Long Range offers 440 km between each charge. It owes this performance to accumulators of 69.9 kWh. Less swift in tension, it limits the engine power to 155 horsepower for 280 Nm of torque.
The on-board charger of this variation supports a charging power of 11 kW in alternating current (AC), against 7 kW for the MG ZS EV previous. The direct current (DC) load remains at 85 kWh.
The model Great autonomy is the first marketed; it will be available from the end of October 2021. The ZS EV Autonomie Standard must arrive in dealership at a later date.
