The British manufacturer, MG is all set to launch the refreshed ZS EV in India on 7 March, 2022. This all-electric equivalent of the Astor will come with upgraded features, new paint options, and an i-Smart connected-car system.
This mid-life update brings the ZS EV close to its combustion engine counterpart, the Astor, in terms of design. What’s more, it gets new LED headlights with L-shaped daytime running lights, a closed-off radiator grille, new front and rear bumpers, and L-shaped rear LED lights.
For the India-spec ZS EV facelift, MG brings a fresh interior with a new 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system and the i-Smart connected car technology with over 75 features. Other features include six airbags, a seven-inch digital instrument cluster, a PM 2.5 filter, a panoramic sunroof, a six-speaker sound system, and a wireless charging pad.
The India-bound ZS EV is likely to come equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, heated outside rear-view mirrors, front and rear wheel disk brakes, a 360-degree camera system, auto headlights and wipers, HLA, HDC, ESP, EBA, TPMS, electric parking brake, pedestrian warning system, blind-spot detection, and ISOFIX child seat points.
MG offers the ZS EV facelift with two new battery packs in some international markets, 51kWh and 72kWh as compared to the previous 44.5kWh battery pack. That said, the India-spec electric SUV is expected to feature a larger battery pack.
