The milestone for the ZS EV, which was first launched in 2020, comes on the back of a comprehensive charging ecosystem which the automaker is working on expanding across the country.

Also, in order to up its EV game, the company recently announced that it is working on launching its most-affordable battery-powered vehicle in India in early 2023. It will be based on the Air EV that is already being sold by MG Motor's sibling brand, Wuling. The new EV has been codenamed E230 and has already been unveiled in Indonesia. The manufacturer will tweak the vehicle according to Indian conditions so they have already started testing it on Indian roads.

Though the battery capacity of the EV is still not known, it is expected to be around 20 to 25 kWh. The driving range on a single charge should be around 150 km while power output is expected to be 40 bhp, which should be enough for city commutes and duties.
