MG ZS Overview
The MG ZS is a B-segment crossover SUV produced by the Shanghai-based SAIC Motor under the now Chinese owned MG marque. The best-selling model is the second SUV to be produced by the company after the larger MG GS. It rivals the highly popular Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-30 and the Hyundai Kona.
Internationally, the MG ZS is offered with two different powertrain options, the petrol-powered engines variant, or an all-electric EV variant. The latter became the cheapest electric car available in the market when it was revealed in Australia back in November 2020.
Thailand made models offers three variants of the 1.5 L petrol-powered version (C+, D+ and X+), and a single all-electric ZS EV (EZS in China) model. The ZS EV is the only variant that has been spotted testing on Malaysian roads. It is powered by an electric motor pushing out 150 PS and 350 Nm, paired to an e-CVT, with a range of 337 km. The MG ZS EV comes in a special Copenhagen Blue exterior colour and Dutch windmill-inspired alloy wheels design. It is expected to be launched officially in Malaysia sometime in 2021.
