MG ZS EV range, battery & charging

The MG ZS EV isn't a long-range champion, but it should be more than sufficient for most families' weekly motoring

Range Battery size Wallbox charge time Fast charge time
163 miles 44.5kWh 6hrs 30mins (0-100%, 7kW) 40mins (0-80%, 50kW)

The ZS EV has a 44.5kWh battery, which means its range isn't quite as long as some electric cars, but also that it doesn't take too long to charge up – whether you're using a public rapid-charging station or a home wallbox charger.

MG ZS EV range

A range of 163 miles is quoted for the ZS EV, based on the latest WLTP independent efficiency testing. The car will likely cover greater distance between charges if you're mostly doing gentle driving around town – WLTP's 'city cycle' estimates a 231-mile range in these conditions.

Likewise, range will be reduced in colder weather or if you're doing constant high speed on the motorway.

Charge time

Because the ZS EV has a relatively small 44.5kWh battery, charing times are pretty fast: it's compatible with both CCS and Type 2 chargers and the charging ports are located inside the front grille.

From a 50kW rapid charger, the ZS EV will reach 80% battery capacity 40 minutes, while overnight charging at home from a 7kW wallbox charger will take about six hours.
