The MG ZS is a B-segment SUV that rivals the Honda HR-V and Mazda CX-30. The ZS family in Thailand is split into two models: one with a pure-petrol powertrain and another battery-electric version. There's three variants of the petrol version (C+, D+ and X+), but just the only one ZS EV. However, only the ZS EV has been spotted testing on Malaysian roads.
The ZS EV is powered by an electric motor pushing 150 PS and 350 Nm, paired to an e-CVT, with a range of 337 km (NEDC). Beneath the Mazda-esque exterior, there's clean and crisp interior that's upholstered in synthetic leather, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with 6 speakers but no Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. There's also good practical stuff like 60:40 split-folding rear seats, 6-way electronically-adjustable driver's seat and PM 2.5 air filtration system.
Besides 6 airbags and the standard safety system, the ZS EV comes with an ADAS suite including ACC, FCW, LKA and BSM with RCTA. The MG ZS EV is slated to launch on Malaysian shores sometime in 2021.
