MG ZS EV range, specifications
The ZS EV was updated in 2021 with changes to its 44.5 kWh battery pack. MG Motor India revised the pack to better handle temperature and weather changes leading to an improvement in the ARAI-certified range to 419km, from the earlier 340 km. MG Motor India says a real-world range between 300-400km can be expected. The SUV also switched 215/55 R17 tyres. The new battery is now placed higher in the chassis at 205mm while ground clearance has also increased to 177mm. The ZS EV continues to put out 143PS and 353 Nm with a 0 to 100 kmph time of 8.5s.
