MG’s second offering for India will be the all-electric ZS EV, which was spied testing some days back. Destined for an Indian unveil in December 2019, MG Motor India has now announced that Sherlock actor Benedict Cumberbatch will be the brand ambassador for the all-electric offering, continuing his association with the brand that started with the Hector. The ZS EV, already on sale abroad, comes with a 44.5kWh battery pack capable of a maximum range of 428km (NEDC claimed). 

Commenting on his association with MG the British actor said, “Since my childhood, I have grown up seeing and reading about MG’s. With the iconic MG brand set to drive into the future, I am delighted to be part of the brand’s journey in India.”

The ZS EV in India is expected to come with an electric motor capable of producing 143PS and 350Nm. Helping these figures are a 44.5kWh battery pack with a range of 428km (NEDC) (WLTP: 262km). The battery also supports fast-charging where it can juice up from 0-80 percent in 40 minutes. 

Expected features include a panoramic sunroof, coloured MID, cruise control, powered driver’s seat and the i-SMART connected-car tech from the Hector. The Hyundai Kona Electric is the only competition to the ZS EV in India. We expect MG to price the ZS EV at around Rs 25 lakh. In other news, MG is also setting up charging networks across the country for the all-electric ZS.
