Due to expensive petrol and diesel, many people are starting to use electric vehicles. Due to this, the demand for electric cars in India has increased rapidly. In view of the increasing demand, vehicle manufacturer MG Motor will launch its new mid-size SUV MG ZS EV on 8 February 2021 in the Indian market. Although the company has not provided any information about this model, but it is believed that the new version of MG ZS EV can undergo many changes in the interior and exterior features of the car. Earlier, MG Motor had launched its first electric SUV MG ZS in the country.
Rajiv Chhaba, President and Managing Director of the company had informed some time ago that the battery in this car will be manufactured in India only. The company took this decision so that the price of the car could be reduced. The company claims that this will reduce emissions of 935 tonnes of carbon dioxide, which is equivalent to 5607 fully grown trees.
These features can be in the new MG ZS
The new MG ZS Electric, to be launched on Monday 8 February, may feature an emergency braking system. Earlier this feature has been seen in MD’s Gloster SUV. The SUV can also get ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) with features such as blind spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control. It is speculated that the new ZS EV can be given a larger battery pack, which offers a range of over 400 km on a single charge i.e. that it can go up to 400 km once charged.
Features of the current MG ZS electric vehicle
The company launched the MG ZS electric car in early 2020 last year. This is the only electric car in the country that can be charged up to 80 percent in just 50 minutes with the help of fast charger. Its demand can be gauged that last year the company had sold a total of 1142 units of this SUV. In this, the company has used a lithium ion battery pack with a capacity of 44.5kWh. The electric motor given in it generates 143 PS of power and 353 nm of torque. According to the company’s claim, this electric car can go up to 340 km once it is full charged.
