MG adds ZE EV Standard Range to revised line-up

New entry level model arrives with larger range than pre-facelifted version

MG continues to improve its popular electric vehicle offering with the addition of the ZS EV Standard Range.

The all-electric SUV comes in beneath the Long Range model, and offers a range of up to 198 miles on a charge.

Pricing remains extremely competative, and all models are eligible for the UK Government's Plug-in Car Grant (PiCG). Now fitted with a 51.1 kWh battery - 6.6 kWh larger than the outgoing model's - it adds an extra 35 miles of range on a charge.

Recharging will take a little over half an hour on a 100 kW rapid point, and models are fitted with a 130 kW electric motor. Prices start at £27,495 (inc. PiCG), a reduction of £2,000 over the Long Range model for the smaller battery.

Orders are open now, with first deliveries expected later this month.
