MG’s ZS EV SUV – a surprise electric package

David Berthon

Driving MG’s relatively new ZS pure electric SUV this week, a vehicle I was determined to drive in the same way I would drive an equivalent petrol powered model. On first impression the drive-ability of this small front wheel drive five door SUV is a real surprise – acceleration rather brisk – a very responsive throttle and the very quiet nature of driving the MG ZS EV provides a great experience.

Braking in most situations from the regenerative nature of charging on the overrun is mostly sufficient to slow the vehicle and for the most part only a quick stop requires use of the brake pedal. Finishes inside and out plus the high level of specification also surprise – at $43,990 drive-away there is a price premium here but for how long. Competition will see the price reduce and there’s a number of competitors around the corner. I’ll talk more about the MG ZS EV next weekend including aspects of charging and range.
