The updates on the front make it more in line with the design of the MG Astor and come in the form of a new front grille that is now a completely sealed-off unit. Apart from that, the new bumper now sports different air intakes and looks a lot more aerodynamic.

Though MG has not revealed the charging time of the updated MG ZS EV, we believe that the charging time may go up marginally due to the bigger battery pack. However, using a DC fast charger, the difference in charging time could be negligible.
