MG ZS EV gets New Features
New ADAS functions that are available with the Astor were supposed to be added by MG. However, it’s likely that MG abandoned this in favour of a longer range. The new ZS EV comes with a larger 10-inch display and a 360-degree camera. A blind-spot warning system is also included in the vehicle. For a more comfortable trip, the rear passengers get additional conveniences such as rear AC vents.
