MG Motor India is all set to launch the facelift version of its existing electric car ZS EV on March 7, 2022. The India-bound model will mostly be similar to the new ZS EV that MG unveiled for global markets in September last year. The ZS EV is expected to get all the updates in line with the recently launched MG Astor.
The 2022 MG ZS EV will soon roll out of MG Motors’ manufacturing facility in Halol, Gujarat, in two trims, with a slightly revised price.

The interior of the MG ZS EV has been slightly redesigned. It gets a larger 10.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system with a 7-inch digital driver’s display identical to the Astor. However, the rotary dial gear knob, driving mode and braking regeneration level switches are the same as before.
Feature-wise, it is expected to get wireless charging, an AI assistant, ADAS with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, a 360-degree camera, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keep assist.
The outgoing MG ZS EV is already equipped with a panoramic sunroof, powered driver’s seat, automatic headlights and wipers, connected car technology, six airbags, hill start/descent control, all-wheel disc brakes, tyre pressure monitoring system, and electronic stability control.

2022 MG ZS EV: Electric Motor and Battery Pack
As far as the electric motor is concerned, we don’t expect any changes. For reference, the outgoing ZS EV is powered by a PMSM (Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor) which produces 141 hp of power and 353 Nm of torque.
The 2022 MG ZS EV should get a (51kWh) battery pack that could deliver a driving range of over 450 kilometres on a single charge.
The updated 2022 ZS EV is likely to have a price tag between ₹22 lakh to ₹25 lakh (ex-showroom). The MG ZS EV will continue to compete with the Hyundai Kona EV.
