MG ZS EV provides a range of 419 km in a single charge which is the longest compared to any EV currently present in the country. The automaker also claimed that the electric SUV has been receiving an average booking of 700 per month.
The company offers the ZS EV in two variants that are Excite and Exclusive. Pricing of the MG ZS EV starts from ₹21.49 lakh.

The first 5,000 units of the car were sold in a short period of time. However, the company underlines that demand for its other models in the country also remains strong.
