All-electric MG ZS to launch this autumn?
MG has announced the launch of its very first battery electric vehicle in the UK this autumn.
The MG ZS electric SUV had its reveal at the Guangzhou motor show in China last year, and it looked like the brand had no plans to sell the ZS EV in the UK. But the increasing desire for zero emissions motoring as evidenced by February’s new car registrations has built an obvious demand for a European version.

While a petrol ZS has been available for some time, the all-electric version aims to bring affordable electric motoring to the wider public.
Pricing and specs are yet to be revealed but reports suggest that it could come with a 148bhp electric motor capable of nearly 200 miles on a full charge.
Daniel Gregorious, head of sales and marketing at MG, said: “With the launch of our MG ZS electric SUV we’re delighted to be entering the electric car market at such an exciting time.
“With all the practicality and versatility of a compact SUV, a full-sized boot and room for five, ZS means electric without compromise. With MG’s trademark value-for-money approach, we’re confident that we can help more and more new car buyers to go electric.”
