MG Motor India will launch the refreshed version of the 2022 MG ZS EV, the brand’s flagship electric passenger car model, in the country on March 7, 2022. The MG ZS EV facelift was recently showcased via a few photos, which show the exterior changes it will be getting. In its 2022 avatar, it will make the journey of the inside passengers more comfortable. The 2022 MG ZS EV will soon be produced from MG Motors’ manufacturing facility in Halol, Gujarat in two trims with slightly revised pricing.
There are notable changes on the exterior of the 2022 MG ZS EV as the face will now see an enclosed grille instead of a deep concave layout, while the charging socket has been moved to the left from behind the MG logo on the grille. The front bumper has been redesigned with a sharper design and a wider central air dam with vertical intakes at both the ends. The 2022 MG ZS EV will get redesigned 17-inch alloy wheels, while the rear will get a new tail-light design and refreshed bumpers. The London-i projector headlamps with LED DRLs, LED taillights, roof rails, rear spoiler, ORVMs with side indicators, will remain intact as before.
Coming to the cabin, the new 2022 MG ZS EV will get a new 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system, which replaces the older 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system. Segment-first Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity come as a standard feature. The cabin has also been completely revamped in terms of the new elements introduced to enhance the feel and hence, it gets a refreshed interior on the lines of MG Aster, with an updated instrument cluster. The refreshed ZS EV will also get center armrests for the rear seats, separate cup-holders, center headrest and rear AC vents. The panoramic sunroof, powered driver seat, automatic headlamps with wipers, connected car technology, six airbags, hill start/descent control and electronic stability control will be retained. Apart from this, a front camera with 360-degree view is also expected to come in it.
The 2022 MG ZS EV will be powered by the same 44.5 kWh battery pack that powers a permanent magnet synchronous motor, which develops 141 bhp and 353 Nm of peak torque. It will be able to deliver an estimated range of 419km on a single charge. Reports suggest that the 2022 MD ZS EV could pack a bigger 50 kWh battery, promising a range of over 500 km on a single charge. This unit was recently introduced in the UK market along with the refreshed MG ZS EV.
