The base spec trim is around Rs 4 lakh cheaper while having the same drive range

  • MG has started sales of ZS EV’s base-spec Excite variant.

  • Bookings commence from October 3.

  • It shares its battery pack with the top-spec Exclusive trim.

  • Comes with a claimed range of 461km.

  • It loses features like the panoramic sunroof, wireless phone charging and ADAS compared to the top variant.

Sales of the MG ZS EV’s base-spec Excite variant have commenced and the carmaker has also introduced a new dual-tone ivory interior theme for the top-spec Exclusive variant. 

Bookings for the entry-level Excite variant of the ZS EV were kept on hold since March, when the facelifted version of the SUV was introduced. MG had previously announced that the Excite variant will be available from July, but after further delay, it has been launched now.

The newly launched Excite variant can be had for a price of Rs 22.58 lakh (ex-showroom), which is around Rs 4 lakh less than the Exclusive trim’s asking price. The introduction of the Excite variant places the ZS EV’s starting price below that of the Hyundai Kona Electric and closer to the Tata Nexon EV Max’s top trim.



The Excite variant has the same 50.3kWh battery pack and claimed range of 461km as the Exclusive trim. The battery is paired with an electric motor that churns out 177PS and 280Nm and this variant also comes with three levels of regenerative braking. As is the case, charge times vary between a 7.4kW wall charger and a 50kW fast charger, with charging periods ranging up to nine hours when the former is used, and dropping to one hour with the fast charger.


The ZS EV Excite comes with a 10.1-inch touchscreen with connected car tech, a seven–inch digital instrument cluster, automatic climate control, rear AC vents, air filter, cruise control and rain-sensing wipers.

On the safety front, it has six airbags, all-wheel disc brakes, a 360-degree camera, hill climb/descent control and a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS).
