Extra range for SUV

MG says it has enhanced the technology of its ZS EV meaning it’s better value as well as boasting a longer range.

iSmart app functionality comes as standard while the SUV has also been given an exterior makeover.

A revised front fascia emphasises the car’s electric intentions while retaining the practical front-mounted charging port, which makes charging-cable connection more convenient, and there are LED lighting clusters front and rear.

Two new battery configurations will be offered when the ZS EV goes on sale in Europe in October. 

A new entry-level 51kWh battery replaces the previous 44.5kWh version, while a larger 72kWh battery offers even more range on a single charge. 

These new batteries offer up to 320km and 440km of range respectively when measured on the WLTP cycle.

The new ZS EV also has its own app-based software architecture, known as iSmart. This allows owners to perform over-the-air updates and access real-time navigation and live weather updates.

The SUV has already been hailed as a success in key European markets. More than 15,000 units have been registered in the UK, Norway, France, Sweden and Netherlands in its first year on sale. 

Local deliveries of the updated ZS EV are expected in the second half of 2022, while specifications and pricing will be revealed in due course.
