The MG ZS EV is made for the family and your pocket. Coming in at £21,495, once the Government Grant and extra MG Grant are applied (first 1,000 customers only), the MG ZS EV seeks to bring electric vehicles to the masses. The 44.5kWh battery provides a very respectable 163-mile range (WLTP) and 0-62mph acceleration in nine seconds – although the instant response and torque of EVs will make it feel much quicker at the lights. Featuring both Type 2 and CCS charging connections, empty to full charging can take just 35 minutes.
Both Excite and Exclusive versions comes with a raft of safety features, including Advanced Emergency Braking, Blindspot Monitoring, Lane Keep Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control.
Charging at home
You can find full details of how long it takes to charge this vehicle from empty to full using a 7.4kW home charge point at the bottom of this page.
However, it's important to note that most electric car charging is done overnight when you're asleep (so you wake up to a charged vehicle) and it's very unlikely you will ever need to charge the battery from completely empty to completely full. So, in reality, most drivers will only need to "top up" their car's battery overnight - for example, from 50% to 80%.
We tested how often the average driver would need to charge each week using the Jaguar GO I-PACE app. See how we got on in this video.
