MG ZS EV prices leaked before launch?

The MG ZS EV’s launch is almost here and it looks like the car will be priced above the Hyundai Kona, as per a report by CarWale. The ZS EV will be available in two variants – Excite and Exclusive, priced at Rs.24 lakhs and Rs.25 lakhs ex-showroom respectively. Bookings of the electric SUV have already started and ZS EV will compete with Hyundai Kona electric (priced at INR 23.71 lakh ex-showroom) and the Tata Nexon EV.

MG Motor India is making all the preparations for the launch of ZS EV and the company is also looking to launch an affordable electric car soon. To setup a strong charging infrastructure, which is currently lacking in India, the company has tied up with several companies to establish public and private charging network across the country. It has installed 10 DC fast-chargers at MG Motor dealerships.

The MG ZS EV gets a 44.5 kWh battery pack with a front-mounted electric motor that delivers 105 kW of power and 353 Nm of torque. The ZS EV can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 8.5 seconds and achieve a top speed of 140 km/h. The battery has a range of 340 km and comes with 8 years/150,000 km warranty. The battery can be charged up to 80% in 50 minutes through a 50 kW fast charger.
