2022 MG ZS EV Powertrain
The same 50.3 kWh battery pack that powers a permanent magnet synchronous motor with 174 horsepower will power the 2022 MG ZS EV. It has a range of 461 kilometres on a single charge, which is an improvement over the previous version’s range of 419 kilometres. It takes only 8.5 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour, which is impressive.
2022 MG ZS EV Interiors
The cabin is also given a comprehensive shakedown in terms of newer features being included to improve the cabin’s overall feel. As a result, it gets a new interior inspired by the MG Astor, as well as a revised instrument cluster. The updated ZS EV will also include a rear-seat centre armrest, individual cupholders, a centre headrest, and rear AC vents.
The new 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system replaces the existing 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system in the 2022 MG ZS EV. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility are standard, which is a segment first. A panoramic sunroof, motorised driver’s seat, automated headlights with wipers, linked car technology, six airbags, hill start/descent control, and electronic stability control will all be available.
2022 MG ZS EV Exteriors
The 2022 MG ZS EV’s bodywork contains major changes, including an enclosed grille instead of a deep concave arrangement on the fascia, and the charging plug being relocated to the left side of the MG logo from behind the MG logo on the grille. The front bumper has been modified with a more aggressive appearance and a bigger central air dam with vertical intakes on both ends. The 2022 MG ZS EV will ride on updated 17-inch alloy wheels, with a new taillight design and refreshed bumpers at the back. Projector headlights with LED DRLs, LED taillights, roof rails, rear spoiler, and ORVMs with side indicators will all be preserved from the previous model.
2022 MG ZS EV Price And Rivals
The ZS EV starts at Rs. 21.99 lakh for the Excite variant and goes up to Rs. 25.88 lakh for the Exclusive variant. When the ZS EV was first introduced in India, costs started at Rs. 19.88 lakh, which was fairly competitive given that the Hyundai Kona was also introduced around the same time.
