MG has just announced that the all-electric version of its ZS SUV/crossover will go on sale in the UK in September this year, with an on-the-road starting price of £28,495 (around $A50,500 plus the usual Australian mark-ups).
After deducting the UK Government’s low emission vehicle grant of £3500 (plus a matching discount from MG), that price reduces to £21,495 (AU$38,000). PLUS, for the first 1000 orders, MG will also throw in a Mode 2 wall charger with basic installation costs covered.
So what will UK buyers get for their money?
The drive train comprises a 44.5kWh battery and a 105kW motor (for comparison, the Kona electric in Australia has a 64kW battery/150kW motor and the Zoe currently sold here is 41kWh/66kW).
The interior and safety offerings are also industry standard (i.e. lots) with the interior featuring an 8” colour touchscreen incorporating satellite navigation, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth phone connectivity, audio streaming and DAB radio.
Safety systems include Advanced Emergency Braking (AEB), blindspot monitoring, lane keep assist and adaptive cruise control.
