I'm sure you've noticed already the MG ZS EV looks very different from the Hector.  The shape it's far more crossover like with smoother round lines another interesting point is that even though this car is so much smaller than the  Hector. They both use 17-inch alloy wheels so the proportions here are just a little bit better.

Front of the car highlighted by DRL's and projected headlights which MG tells is inspired by London Eye. Side profile is clean,length is 4314 mm. In the rear getting LED treatments for the look and feel,width is 1809 mm. On the top of the MG ZS EV is massive sunroof which covered s 80% of the car.

Interior

There is nice almost superb cabin. There is large infotainment 8 inches screen with map,apps and voice control command unit. As compare to Hector  what's interesting though is that it's been upgraded to whats MG Calls the new i-smart 2.0 operating system and the hardware is a lot better too it's got 3 GB of RAM and 6 core processor and the effect of that  it's a whole lot smoother and everything operates a whole lot quicker. There are also some EV specific features like of course you're charging status and how much CO2 you saved by driving.

The dash is sleek and plenty of plastic to add finish. There is defiantly more space inside the ZS EV. In this car 5 people can easily seat.  There is six way driver seat adjustment is quite nice same adjustment for front seat passenger also.

From the driver seat you can observe you have very commanding view of the road. Its because seats are very up high and Windows are decently big.

Battery Capacity

In this ZS EV 44.5 kWh water cooled Lithium ion battery pack that promise range of over 300 km.


There is three driving modes in ZS EV.

Normal Mode.
Eco Mode.
Sports Mode.

If you drive with Eco mode you will be able to drive longer but performance may not be as much sports or normal mode. Sports mode is superb because in this mode Torque comes absolutely instantly. But if you want to balance between power and range you can choose Normal Mode.
