MG has given its ZS electric SUV a mid-life facelift, with updated looks and longer range; set to arrive in Singapore in 2022


SINGAPORE

MG has pulled the wraps off its updated ZS electric SUV, which features an extensive styling makeover, longer range, and upgraded infotainment and connectivity options. The car will go on sale in Europe at the end of this year, and is scheduled to arrive in Singapore in the second half of 2022.

The biggest styling change to the ZS is the new front end, which has a more streamlined look with its body-coloured ‘grille’, which is said to aid with aerodynamics and improve overall efficiency. The charging port has also been moved to the side of the grille, instead of in the centre behind the logo. New sharper LED headlights and a slightly revised rear bumper complete the ZS’s redesign.

Under the skin, MG will offer a new Long Range version of the ZS, which features a 72kWH battery pack that gives the car a range of 439km on a full charge, a significant increase over the current car’s 262km of range. 

This Long Range version will be the standard model for the ZS at launch, but MG will also introduce a mid-range model with a 51kWH battery and 318km of range later next year. MG did not reveal performance figures for the updated ZS, but with a bigger battery, expect a slight bump in performance over the current car’s 141hp and 353Nm of torque.

The interior design of the ZS remains mostly unchanged, with the main difference being the new 10.1-inch touchscreen display that incorporates an upgraded infotainment and connectivity system called iSmart.

The system is now paired with a dedicated smartphone app, from which the user will be able to activate various car functionalities, like the climate control and charging functions, from his phone. There is also now a wireless charger, and a new all-digital driver instrument display.

MG has had a solid start in Singapore following its official sales debut here in early 2020, with its latest model, the MG 5 station wagon, further strengthening its EV portfolio locally. The ZS meanwhile is already one of the best-selling EVs in Singapore, and the updated model should help to boost its appeal even further.
