MG ZS EV Launch – Price unveil
MG Motor is claiming that the ZS EV comes at a running cost of under Rs 1 per km calculated up to 100,000 kilometres with preventive maintenance including parts, consumables, labour and taxes and as on date (January 2020) electricity rates in Delhi-NCR.
MG Motor India has installed 10 DC chargers at dealerships across India to overcome customers’ range anxiety issues.
