MG Motors in the UK have announced further details of the new MG ZS EV Standard Range. The new model all-electric sports utility vehicle (SUV) will cost £27,495 (after plug-in car grant) and is available to order now with deliveries expected later this month.
The ZS EV Standard Range offers a 198-mile (319km) range and all Standard Range versions of this electric vehicle (EV) feature a 51.1kWh battery which is 6.6kWh larger than the outgoing 44.5kWh model. Using a 100kW rapid charger, Standard Range versions can be charged up to 80 percent in just 36 minutes.
The motor fitted to Standard and Long Range versions of New MG ZS EV are the same but due to the different operating voltage of the different battery sizes, Standard Range versions have a higher equivalent power output of 176 horsepower (130kw).
Guy Pigounakis, MG Motor UK Commercial Director, said: “MG is already the go-to choice for customers looking to buy a great quality, well-equipped and terrific value electric cars but the new Standard Range ZS EV takes that offering to new levels.
“The Plug-in Car Grant may have been reduced but MGs commitment to delivering great value, world-class EVs certainly hasn’t – the ZS EV offers unrivalled specification, range and performance for the money.”
