Facelifted 2022 MG ZS EV Launched: All Details Covered In 10 Images

Changes are not just limited to cosmetics and features. They are more than skin deep, and all of them are welcome

The facelifted MG ZS EV, which has been launched at Rs 22 lakh (ex-showroom), gets more than just a cosmetic update. Vehicles have started reaching dealerships and test drives are expected to begin soon. Initially, only the top-spec Exclusive trim will be on sale, but you can buy the base-spec Excite from June onwards. 

We have got our hands on the facelifted EV’s images, and here are all the details in 10 images:

At the front, the ZS EV now gets a closed-off front grille, flanked by a revised pair of LED headlights similar to the Astor. You’ll also notice that the charging port is a separate flap and not behind the logo as is the case with the pre-facelift EV. A redesigned front bumper completes the fascia. 

In profile, the EV now gets new 17-inch alloy wheels with a more aerodynamic design. Apart from that, there have been no changes made to the sheet metal.


Changes to the rear are new tail lamps, once again similar to the Astor, and a reprofiled rear bumper. Like before, the MG logo also doubles up as the boot opener, a touch that can be also found in Volkswagen cars. 

Four colours are on offer: black, grey, red, and white. The trademark blue has been dropped from the lineup. 

Inside, the dashboard of the ZS EV has been lifted off from the Astor. So, the larger 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system and digital driver’s display are now present here, albeit with EV-specific graphics. That said, it’s only available in one colour scheme: all-black. In comparison, the Astor gets all-black, black/beige, and black/red. 

Enhancements have been made to the rear seat for a more comfortable travelling experience. Occupants are now treated to a centre armrest and rear AC vents, both of which were absent before. 

Other new features onboard include a 360-degree camera, blindspot warning, lane keeping assist, reverse parking assistance, and rear cross traffic assistance. That said, the 2022 ZS EV doesn’t get the full suite of advanced driver assistance systems as seen in the Astor. Other passenger safety features include six airbags and electronic stability control. 


Creature comforts include a panoramic sunroof, automatic climate control, cruise control, connected car tech, a powered driver’s seat, steering-mounted audio controls, keyless entry with push-button start, and auto headlights and wipers. 


The main change for the EV, though, is underneath the skin. It now gets a more powerful 176PS electric motor (up from 143PS), paired with a larger 50.3 kWh battery pack (previously, it came with a 44kWh unit). As a result, the EV now can do 461km on a single charge, an improvement from the previous 419km. Like before, the ZS EV supports fast-charging capabilities. 


The 2022 MG ZS EV is priced from Rs 22 lakh to Rs 25.88 lakh, a premium of up to Rs 70,000 depending on the variant you pick. Considering the amount of upgrades made to the EV, the moolah does seem like a good spend. The MG ZS EV renews its rivalry with the Hyundai Kona Electric.
