MG motor has unveiled its new ZS EV – one of the best value electric vehicles available in Australia with the entry level model priced below $45,000 drive away.
The Excite model is priced at $44,990 drive away while the more premium Essence model, which has several additional features, is still competitively priced at the drive away price of $48,990.
“This past year has been an incredible year for MG. In 2021, sales of electric vehicles broke records and MG’s 2021 ZS EV led the charge,” says Peter Ciao, MG Motor Australia & New Zealand CEO.
“However, we would have not achieved this success without the support of our customers, and we are so honoured to see Australians embracing the MG brand and the ZS EV with such enthusiasm.
“Our 7-year Warranty is comprehensive across both ICE, Electric and Batteries with no hidden exclusions. All our 83 dealerships in Australia are trained to sell and service all our products and our customers appreciate this level of service and offering.
“We have been successful in offering the Australian market unparalleled value and we are now entering a new phase of our growth with the new ZS EV. This is the first step in our new journey to an electric future that’s here today.
“While value will remain at the core of our product offering, value means different things to different people and we want to deliver that value to as many people as we can.”
The MG ZS EV has had an exterior redesign and a revised front fascia to achieve a striking sleeker look while, under the hood, battery technology has improved to deliver higher range of 320km – that’s up from the 263km of the 2021 model.
But not only has the range improved but so has the speed of the charge thanks to new onboard charging capabilities that can achieve up to 80 per cent charging time in as little as 54 minutes when using 50 kW combined charging system (CCS).
The new MG ZS EV has retained the easy to access the front mounted charging port.
It also has LED lighting clusters in the front and rear to give the mid-sized electric SUV a look that will stand out on the road.
ZS EV also has a smart system on board, backed by Amazon’s AWS cloud-based system, which will make it possible to perform over the air software updates, control AC and door locking remotely and facilitate real-time navigation.
The onboard tech would also enable a Find My Car parking lot search feature while providing live weather updates and audio streaming from Amazon Music.
The MG ZS EV Excite and Essence models come in five colours including Brighton Blue Metallic, York White, Pebble Black, Sloan Silver Metallic and Diamond Red Metallic.
