ZS EV's 44.5 kWh is produced in China by SAIC Motor and CATL joint venture at an automated manufacturing plant with capacity of up to around 300,000 packs annually (but of course not only for the MG brand, but in general for SAIC cars). The MG ZS EV, as it will be called in the United Kingdom, is priced from 21,495 Pounds, going up to 23,495 Pounds (around ₹ 18.36-20.07 lakh), after the 3500 Pound government grant and the company's initial discount. MG will match this for the first 1,000 retail customers, lowering the price to £21,495.

Owners of these early models will receive a free home charging point, which will be installed at no extra charge by MG. MG eZS will also be launched in India and the company has already confirmed that it will be launched by the end of this year after Hector.

MG's new EZS could prove to be Australia's cheapest electric auto.

"ZS EV is here to revolutionise the way people think about electric cars". Power sits at 141bhp and 260lb ft which, again, should be plenty.

Design-wise, it sports special badging, new 17-inch alloy wheels and the distinctive star-rider grille with an integrated charging port.

Electric vehicles are on their way to replace vehicles run by petrol, diesel, and other fuels, and are clearly the future of the country.

Last year, it sold 134,786 cars, a significant increase over the 80,389 sold in 2016.

When TG first drove the MG ZS - the compact crossover charged with doubling MG's sales - we concluded that while it was very practical and well-priced, its automatic gearbox and old-school engines made it a bit of a nightmare to drive. The electric SUV comes with a number of electronics, such as active emergency parking, lane keeping assist, traffic jam assist and intelligent speed limit assist.
