2022 MG ZS EV price slightly increased over the pre-facelift model
2022 MG ZS EV launched in India with a starting price of Rs. 21.99 lakhs (ex-showroom). There are two variants on offer – Excite and Exclusive. The range topping Exclusive trim is priced at Rs. 25.88 lakhs (ex-showroom) and is available right away. The base variant will be available by July 2022.
As you can see, MG has made some changes on the exterior based on the Astor facelift. However, it comes with some typical EV styling cues like the covered up nose without the grille pattern accommodating the charging socket up front. There are new 17-inch alloy wheels on offer with a sleeker pattern.
The interior gets a larger 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. There is a 7-inch fully-digital instrument cluster. The car also offers wireless phone charging, 5 USB ports including 2 Type-C charging ports.
The i-SMART connected car system comes with 75+ features. There is a new Digital Bluetooth key feature as well that allows customers to drive without a physical key in select cases.
Safety features include 6 airbags, 360-degree camera, hill descent control, tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS), electronic stability control (ESC), Rear Drive Assist, Blind Spot Detection (BSD), Lane Change Assist (LCA), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), etc.
The most important change here is the new 50.3kWH battery pack which is larger than the outgoing version and MG claims it is the largest in this segment. It meets the global safety standards of IP69K & ASIL-D. It offers a better range of 461 km (ICAT claimed), which is 42 km more.
Even the performance figures have seen a big improvement. The electric motor now delivers 176 HP and 280 Nm of torque. It’s 33 HP more and does 0-100 km/hr sprint in a claimed 8.5 seconds.
The new ZS EV is available in Ferris White, Currant Red, Ashen Silver and Sable Black colour options.
