EXTERIOR

EXTERIOR

MG ZS EV exteriors look attractive due to the sleek treatment that the MG has given. MG has not tried to make the design of the crossover to be complicated or quirky. The ZS EV looks simple and sleek. According to MG, the sleek projector headlamps with LED Daytime Running Lamps are inspired by the London Eye.

The centre of the concave grille houses the charging port behind the breathable glowing MG badge. The side profile consists of 17-inch machined alloy wheels and power-adjustable and folding body-coloured rear view mirrors. The roof rails and the muscular wheel arches enhance the side profile of the EV. At the rear, you get a set of LED tail lamps.

Things to keep in mind before Buying MG ZS EV

 

 

When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.

MG ZS EV Expert Reviews

Fabulous car
for MG ZS EV

This thing is really good but I find it difficult to rely on MG due to the Hector. Well, it’s not fair to take a decision though. I think this is over priced. And when I am getting all those under 20lakhs on road from the Nexon, then why one would go for the MG! Moreover, MG has indeed done a good job but has put the car on a non negotiable price range.


One of the Best SUV Car
for MG ZS EV

The car’s overall performance is great but the engine could have been built a bit more powerful as its acceleration is a bit slow.
