The new MG ZS EV gets an uprated battery pack and a claimed ARAI range of 419 kms on a single charge. However, the updated MG ZX EV is not likely to hit reach the Indian shores anytime soon.
Speaking about the updates, the updates are not only limited to the battery pack but the whole car itself and the changes on the exterior include a few cosmetic upgrades as well.
The updates on the front come in the form of a new front grille that is now a completely sealed-off faux unit, the new bumper which now sports different air intakes and looks a lot more aerodynamic, and finally, the new headlights that have been borrowed from the upcoming MG Astor.
Moving on to the sides, the updated MG ZS EV retains its original silhouette, but there are a few subtle changes like the new door cladding and new alloy wheels with a more modern design.
Coming to the rear of the updated MG ZS EV, the updated version now sports a new rear bumper with different styling elements and a pair of new taillamps. Though the new taillamps look different to the current version, the housing of the taillamps seems to have been carried over from the older model.
On the inside, the updated MG ZS EV now gets a 10.1-inch infotainments system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Moreover, the new infotainment unit now comes equipped with connected car features via MG's iSmart platform.
Another big change on the updated MG ZS EV is the availability of two variants. The updated MG ZS EV is now available base and long-range variants.
The base variant of the MG ZS EV itself now gets a bigger 51 kWh battery pack instead of the 44.5 kWh battery pack found in the older model. Whereas the long-range variant of the MG ZS EV now gets an even bigger 72 kWh battery pack
With the upgraded battery packs under the floor, the new MG ZS EV gets a claimed range of 320kms on the base version, which is around 57 kms more than the older MG ZS EV.
Coming to the long-range variant of the new updated MG ZS EV, MG Motor India claims a maximum range of 439 kms on a single charge. Which is around 119 kms more than the updated MG ZS EV base variant and 176 kms more than the older version of MG ZS EV.
This means the new MG ZS EV can travel from Panvel to Dadar almost eleven times without having to charge in between.
Both the variants of the updated MG ZS EV are offered with 11 kW AC chargers as standard. The charging port now gets a four-stage LED indicator that reflects the charging status.
Using the standard charger, the long-range version can be fully charged in 10.5 hours, however, the charging time can be reduced significantly by using a 100 kW DC charger.
With the 100 kW DC charger, the MS ZS EV long-range can be charged from 0-80 per cent in just 42 minutes.
If MG plans to launch the updated MG ZS EV anytime soon in India, expect it to be priced around Rs 26-27 lakhs for the base variant, and RS 30-31 lakh for the long-range variant.
Thoughts About The Updated MG ZS EV
The updated MG ZS EV makes a lot of sense in the Indian market as many people are looking forward to buying an EV with decent long-range capability.
With a 72 kWh battery pack and a growing interest in EV among urbanites in India, we expect the updated MG ZS EV to reflect the success of its other models in India.
