The Heart Of The Matter - Powertrain:

The highlight of the  ZS EV has to be its electric powertrain. The all-electric SUV is powered by an electric motor that develops 143PS and 353Nm of torque. This motor sends drive to the front wheels. It draws power from a 44.5kWh battery pack and MG claims that it has a real-world range of 340km on a single charge. The battery pack supports fast charging capabilities and can juice up from 0-80 percent in 50 minutes. MG is also working on a 73kWh battery pack for the ZS EV and that version is expected to come with a 500km range. 

Catchy Looks? - Exterior Styling:

One can’t go wrong with the ZS EV - not only does it look familiar, but it is also a stylish offering like the Hector. The SUV gets a chrome-studded honeycomb grille flanked by projector headlamps with LED DRLs. A strong character line runs through the side and is enhanced by elements such as 17-inch dual-tone alloy wheels and body cladding. Highlights at the rear include LED tail lamps.
