It’s time for the all-new affordable small electric crossover SUV, the MG ZS EV, to be reviewed by Fully Charged Show.
Although there were some slight oddities and complexities with the driver interface and charging in the MG ZS EV, Robert really enjoyed driving this new entrant into the electric car market.
ZS EV features a water-cooled 44.5 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, fed to a front-mounted electric motor which delivers 105 kW / 143 PS of power and 353 Nm of instant torque. The battery can 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%. Water-cooling manages the battery temperature allowing frequent rapid charging and optimum range whatever the weather, allowing frequent rapid charging and improved range, with 163 miles (or 262 km) from a single charge on the WLTP combined cycle.
Since ZS EV was launched to the media in July, it has become a sales sensation with MG selling 2,000 units in the first 60 days of orderbooks opening.
