The MG ZS EV Standard Range has gone on sale with a claimed combined range of 198 miles.
As the new entry point to the line-up, the Standard Range is priced at £27,495 once the UK government’s £1,500 plug-in grant has been applied.
It features a 51.1kWh battery and has the same motor as Long Range versions, but the Standard Range has a higher equivalent power output of 176hp.
The Standard Range can be charged from 10-80% in 36 minutes using a 100kW rapid charger.
“MG is already the go-to choice for customers looking to buy a great quality, well-equipped and terrific value electric car, but the new Standard Range ZS EV takes that offering to new levels,” said Guy Pigounakis, MG’s commercial director.
“The Plug-in Car Grant may have been reduced, but MGs commitment to delivering great value, world class EVs certainly hasn’t – the ZS EV offers unrivalled specification, range and performance for the money.”
Trim levels for the Standard Range are the same as Long Range cars – SE, Trophy and Trophy Connect.
Customer deliveries for the Standard Range will begin later this month.
