MG pioneers the EV ecosystem in India, unveils India’s First Pure Electric Internet SUV – the ZS E

0

MG (Morris Garages) Motor India has today unveiled an end-to-end electric vehicle ecosystem for India’s First Pure Electric Internet SUV – the ZS EV. The industry-shaping development marks the next phase of the carmaker’s global drive to usher in a cleaner and greener future.

The ZS EV is MG’s First Pure Electric Internet SUV with a clean, efficient and fast powertrain. The all-new, advanced 44.5 kWh, liquid-cooled NMC (Nickel Manganese Cobalt) battery from CATL, one of the world’s largest battery manufacturers, gives the car a travel range of 340 kilometers on a full charge. It delivers 353 Nm of instant torque and 143 PS power, accomplishing 100 kmph from a standstill in 8.5 seconds.

MG Motor India has partnered with various global and local players in the EV field for its multi-step charging ecosystem that is aimed at fulfilling ZS EV customer requirements. Each ZS EV comes with an on-board cable to charge anywhere and an AC fast charger for charging at homes/offices. The carmaker is also setting up a DC Super-Fast charging network at select MG showrooms and plans to create an extended charging network across MG dealerships in select satellite cities along key routes. Through Super-Fast DC chargers (50 kW), the ZS EV will reach 80% battery capacity within 50 minutes while AC fast chargers installed at homes will take around 6 – 8 hours for a full charge.

“As an enabler and catalyst for India’s EV revolution, MG Motor India is creating a strong, end-to-end electric vehicle ecosystem in association with leading players in the sustainable energy domain. A truly global and best-in-class EV SUV, the ZS EV has already registered significant success in more than 10 international markets such as the United Kingdom, Europe, Australia, and Southeast Asia. It has also been extensively tested for India-specific requirements. We’re hopeful that it will recreate its success in India, thanks to the strong EV ecosystem that we are putting in place. We will evaluate opportunities to further expand this ecosystem to more markets across India, based on customer response,” said Rajeev Chaba, President & Managing Director, MG Motor India.

The ZS EV: India’s First Pure Electric Internet SUV

The ZS EV comes with a unique Breathable Glow Logo that shows the vehicle charging status. Promising clean air on the inside as well, the pure electric internet SUV has an inbuilt PM 2.5 filter to help MG customers breathe pure air. The CO2 Saver feature in the head unit also displays how much CO2 customers have saved as they drive the car, showing them exactly what they are doing to change, what they can.

With the brand’s latest design philosophy of ‘emotional dynamism’ at its core, the ZS EV’s internal and external styling elements make it feel reassuringly MG and refreshingly innovative. Its skyroof covers 90% of the total roof area. MG’s ingenious positioning of the battery pack underneath the car ensures no compromise in cabin or storage space and achieves a low centre of gravity that makes the ZS EV agile and dynamic at corners.

The ZS EV also features impressive technology that maximizes range, efficiency, and convenience. Its three driving modes and three levels of regenerative braking can be tailored to suit individual driver preferences, making it the perfect companion for everyday driving.

iSMART EV 2.0

The ZS EV features the exclusive and updated iSMART EV 2.0, powered by an all-new 6-core processor that promises a seamless user experience. The iSMART EV 2.0 has an inbuilt embedded SIM providing internet onboard and can also be connected to an external Wi-Fi connection. This unique, industry-first capability allows users to connect their ZS EVs to their home networks and mobile hotspots, making it the first truly connected electric car in the country.

It also comes with features like search charging stations nearby, CO2 saved and 360 Spider which helps users to find charging stations when the remaining range is less than 50 KM. The iSMART 2.0 also comes with all the internet car features like connected mobility enabled by Cisco and Unlimit, cloud computing via Microsoft Azure, over the air updates, real-time maps with charging station locator from TomTom, music from Gaana App and weather by Accuweather.

ONE RACE SuperSikh Run is a Sewa inspired professionally managed Half Marathon event which has had three very successful editions in Delhi in 2018, 2017 and 2016. One Race takes place annually in New Delhi starting at the heritage site of Gurudwara Rakabganj Sahib in Lutyens Delhi. The 4th edition of the prestigious race will take place on 8th December and is expected to witness participation from over 7000 runners across extraordinary men and women.

To channelize the raw talent of young athletes in India, Hero Electric along with SuperSikh Foundation have initiated the Sub3010KM project.
