The MG ZS EV facelift gets a closed-off grille finished in body colour with a textured pattern. The previous version had a more conventional grille at the front. The side profile remains the same but gets a new design for the 17-inch dual-tone alloy wheels, which seem to be more aerodynamic than before. The LED headlights, DRLs and tail lights are all new and identical to the MG Astor.

MG offer the ZS EV with 5 different charging solutions:

  • Onboard charging cable
  • Home-based AC charger
  • DC fast charger at Dealerships

Unlike the Astor, the ZS EV facelift doesn’t get ADAS built-in. Hence, it lacks some features like adaptive cruise control and auto emergency braking. However, it does offer some features like rear cross-traffic alerts and lane change assist. MG continue to offer the ZS EV with 5 year RSA (Road-side Assistance), 5 labour-free services and a 5-year unlimited km warranty. For the battery pack and motor, MG offer 8 years or 1,50,000 km warranty. The new ZS EV will take on the likes of the upcoming Hyundai Kona EV facelift and Tata Nexon EV Long Range.
