MG Motor India has commenced production of the ZS EV facelift at its Halol facility in Gujarat, ahead of its expected launch in the country later this month. The electric crossover registered 145% growth in India in 2021, which obviously made MG super excited to bring the European facelift into India.
Speaking of which, the European facelift debuted in October 2021 with styling tweaks and upgraded onboard technology. Obviously, we’ve to wait for a few more days to know the full list of features, but you wouldn’t go wrong expecting some of the best-in-segment features.
The European facelift also had some changes in the output figures, such as the increase in power from 105 kW (143 metric hp) to 130 kW (177 metric hp) while the torque dropped from 353 Nm (260 lb-ft) to 280 Nm (207 lb-ft). The ZS EV facelift also offers two battery packs in Europe: 50.3 kWh and 70 kWh; with the latter, the power output drops to 115 kW (156 metric hp) while the torque remains the same. The Long Range battery pack is claimed to offer a WLTP range of up to 440 km (273 mi). It’ll be interesting to see what MG India has done with these numbers.
