Refreshed MG ZS EV here July

Two-variant range brings new look and more tech; top-spec Essence up by $5000

7 Mar 2022

MG Motor Australia and New Zealand says its new ZS EV is set to consolidate its position as a leader in the affordable new energy vehicle space when it launches in July this year, despite the top-spec Essence variant increasing in price by $5000.


As part of the upgrade, the freshly updated ZS EV receives a completely new interior and more efficient, better-performing driveline.


The two-variant range – Excite and Essence – will be priced from $46,990 drive-away with both models to draw power from a 51kWh battery pack MG Motor says will provide up to 320km of driving range.


While it is yet to provide full specifications of the driveline, MG Motor said the ZS EV will feature an updated electric motor and enhance battery management electronics to improve the model’s driving characteristics and efficiency.


“Australian and New Zealand customers appreciate that the MG ZS EV is leading the way in affordable EV motoring,” MG Motor Australia and New Zealand CEO Peter Ciao said.


“We trust that our new ZS EV will grow that legacy. It offers more technology at a price that will allow everyday Australians to switch to electric motoring without compromise. It is the next step in MG Motor’s journey of making EV easy for everyone,” he added.


The exterior of the ZS EV is redesigned with a “stylish and modern” aesthetic. The grille-less front fascia is dominated by 21-module LED self-dimming headlights, while the rear-end receives nine-module LED tail-lights. Seventeen-inch alloy wheels are standard across the range.


In addition, the newly introduced ZS EV Excite (from $46,990 drive-away) features a reversing camera, 360-degree camera system, MG Pilot technology, and a 10.1-inch floating touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and native satellite navigation.


The top-shelf ZS EV Essence (from $49,990 drive-away) meanwhile adds blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, a panoramic sunroof, six-speaker audio system, power folding wing mirrors, leather-look seats, a wireless device charging pad, front seat heaters, and a six-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat.


Both ZS EV variants include MG Pilot driver assistance technology as standard with intelligent high-beam control, AEB, adaptive cruise control, emergency lane keeping, speed assistance and more.


Like all MG Motor passenger models, the ZS EV is backed by a seven-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty which includes the high-voltage battery.


Further, MG Motor is offering a $500 rebate on the price of its new MG ChargeHub wallbox (see link below) to the first 500 purchasers of its revised ZS EV. The company says its newly released wallbox is the “perfect accompaniment to the ZS EV” and enables faster charging times for all EVs regardless of brand.


Available in 7kW single-phase and 11kW three-phase configurations, the agnostic electric vehicle chargers are now offered for purchase via MG Motor’s 80 dealerships nationwide for $1990 and $2090 respectively.


The weather-resistant Charge Hub unit may be wall or pedestal mounted and is Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) compliant ensuring it is compatible with any Type 2 electric vehicle on the market in Australia.


The new MG ZS EV will go on sale from July.
