MG ZS EV makes UK & European debut at London Motor Show

10th May 2019

 

MG Motor UK’s first-ever fully electric car, the ZS EV, will be shown to the UK and European public for the very first time at the London Motor Show on 16-19 May at London’s ExCel.

The ZS EV breaks new ground for the MG brand and its European public debut will give potential buyers their first glimpse of the family-friendly electric car.

The ZS EV is powered by a 44.5kWh water-cooled battery with rapid-charging capability that will enable it to be recharged from 0-80% in 43 minutes, while domestic charging on a 7kW unit takes six-and-a-half hours from 0-100%. Certified range on current WLTP test regulations is expected to be confirmed in Q3.

The introduction of the ZS EV will come laden with a long list of standard safety equipment including a suite of advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) presented as a first for MG. New standard features such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Traffic Assist featuring automatic low-speed steering, Blind Spot Detection, Autonomous Emergency Braking and Pedestrian Alert Control System add to the ZS EV’s compelling suite of high technology.

As the most technologically advanced MG ever, ZS EV is equipped as standard with a new panoramic, sliding sky-roof to further enhance the sense of space within the cabin. Furthermore, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto allow for seamless integration with owners’ own technology, while DAB Radio, keyless entry and satellite navigation enhance the level of technology found within this family friendly electric SUV.

Since it was first announced in March, MG has received 800 expressions of interest for its forthcoming new model, which is the most for any pre-launched model in the company’s history.

Daniel Gregorious, Head of Sales and Marketing at MG Motor UK, says: “The arrival of the ZS EV represents the start of MG’s long-term brand and product expansion plan and we are delighted to be able to share it with the British public for the first time. The arrival of the ZS EV adds a new dimension to the car market by offering high-tech zero-emissions transport to a broader cross-section of buyers.

“The initial interest in ZS EV is extremely encouraging and confirms that car buyers are looking for a practical, versatile and stylish electric vehicle. It will also be the most high-tech MG yet. Following this, we will move to the next phase of our launch plan, by opening our order book at the show. Interested buyers can place a holding deposit on the stand to reserve their place on the waiting list. As visitors will see, this new MG bares all the key hallmarks customers know and love about the standard ZS in terms of flexibility, space and generous standard specification, but it just so happens to be a fully electric SUV.”

The ZS EV will come with the brand’s renowned and fully transferable 7-year Warranty. Pricing and full specification will be confirmed closer to the on-sale date of 1st September.
