What are the automatic variants of MG ZS EV
MG ZS EV is available in 5 Automatic variants, out of which all are electric. The base Automatic variant ZS EV Excite starts at Rs. 23.38 Lakh and the top-end Automatic variant ZS EV Exclusive Pro DT is priced at Rs. 27.99 Lakh.
It supports two types of charging options: a 7.4kW AC charger that takes around 8.5 to nine hours to fully recharge the battery, and a 50kW DC fast charger that juices up the battery from 0-80 per cent in just 60 minutes.
Both cars are good in their forte. MG has gone for a cleaner philosophy, which is evident in the lack of clutter around the new front bumper and the axing of the faux front grille. Other than that, the 17-inch alloy wheels get a new design, the headlights and tail lamps are from the Astor, and the rear bumper has a distinct look. Also, black and grey join the paint options on the Astor alongside red and white. But the trademark blue has been taken out. Under the good is where the juicy changes are at. It is now powered by a 176PS electric powertrain, a 33PS jump over the pre-facelift model’s 143PS setup. It is also now coupled with a larger 50.3kWh battery pack in place of the 44kWh unit. Of course, this translates to a claimed range of 461km, which is 42km better than the pre-facelift model’s 419km (claimed). On the other hand, The Nexon’s balance of ride comfort, backseat space, and boot space has made it a fantastic pick as the family car. The EV has managed to retain these values. The floor height for the rear bench and the 350-litre boot space is unchanged. This has been achieved by packing the 30.2kWh batteries underneath the car, resulting in a 4mm drop in ground clearance to a still-healthy 205mm. The Nexon EV makes the leap that we have been awaiting from Tata Motors. It is appealing and polished, with no ifs and buts. The plastics felt good and the finish was consistent too. Everything worked as expected, if not better. The only niggles we could find was that in sunlight, we couldn’t see which mode was selected on the drive mode selector because of the weak backlight. A 300km real-world range and a higher top speed would have cemented the Nexon as the EV to beat. The Nexon EV is expected to be priced between Rs 15 lakh to Rs 17 lakh, but state government subsidies and rebates would bring it in line with its ICE-equipped siblings and in a position to make EVs the new normal. For a better understanding of compatibility and driving comfort, we would suggest you to take a test drive. Follow the link and select your city accordingly for dealership details.
