The MG ZS EV will be sold in India as a completely knocked down (CKD) product and will be assembled at company's Halol plant in Gujarat, alongside the Hector SUV. The ZS EV is MG Motor's second model in India after the Hector and is laden with all connected car tech we have seen in the Hector. However, all connected features are packed into an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system in this one, instead of the 10.4-inch vertically mounted screen we have seen in the Hector. The ZS EV is equipped with a 44.5 kWh IP6 certified battery pack that powers a synchronous motor that puts out 141 bhp and 353 Nm of peak torque. The battery can offer a maximum range of about 340 km on a single charge, and thanks to power electronic (PE) solutions from UAES, it can go from 0-100 kmph in just 8.5 seconds.
