Given Australians are now facing higher than ever fuel prices and rising interest rates, there is no surprise that customers are labelling this MG ZS EV as the best value electric vehicle in the market, with MG barely making cars fast enough to meet market demand.
What we found was this new, more environmentally friendly vehicle offers everything you would expect from a med size SUV, but with the added benefit of being electric and zero emissions.
While electric cars are known for their cost savings, they often come with an expensive initial outlay. Yet MG continues to bring cars that are all about value onto the Australian market while bringing down the cost-of-entry for owning an electric car.

All new ways to drive: Eco, Normal, Sport
When driving the MG ZS EV, I was able to choose between three driving modes, Eco, Normal and Sport. The mode is selected using a button on the centre console and each has a different effect on the car’s performance.
Eco Mode helped maximise range and minimise battery usage by limiting acceleration, increasing regenerative braking and adjusting throttle response. It also offers the best electric efficiency.
Normal Mode offered a balance of power and economy but with slightly increased battery usage for those who are not looking for an eco-conscious option.
Sport Mode provided me with maximum power – this setting is ideal for those looking for a more thrilling drive experience.
You can charge in under an hour on the go, the MG ZS EV can be rapid charged to 80% in just 54 minutes from a DC rapid charging point.
Speed and Range: Go Faster and Further Than Before
This new model promises you can go further than before with a range of 320 miles on a single charge thanks to its 50.3 kWh, liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery (with 7-year warranty). This newest addition rivals Tesla’s latest vehicles in every way. What I experienced was true electric acceleration when the model went from zero to 130kW of power – the equivalent of many high-performance sports cars – delivering 280Nm of instant torque.
MG continues to pave the way in electric vehicles with their refreshing concepts and innovative designs they manage to improve on existing customer favourite models. With affordability and accessibility as the cornerstone of their brand, they are quickly racing to the top as automotive leaders, especially for their new electric technology.
