The electric SUV is expected to be launched in India in January 2020
The India-spec MG ZS EV will be unveiled in December 2019.
The electric SUV will be equipped with an air filter built into its AC.
Its main rival, the Kona Electric, does not get this feature.
Only the Hyundai Venue and Kia Seltos get built-in air purifiers in the sub-30 lakh bracket.
The India-spec MG ZS EV is scheduled to make its reveal in December 2019, while the launch has been postponed to 2020. It is already on sale in countries like China and the UK. Now, a new clip confirms that the India-spec model will feature a built-in air purifier.
The climate control of the electric SUV features a built-in PM 2.5 air filter and its effectiveness is showcased in the source video. In the UK market, the air filter is only offered on the top-spec Exclusive variant of the MG ZS EV. Currently, the Hyundai Venue and Kia Seltos are some of the other SUVs on sale in India priced under Rs 30 lakh with air purifiers.
Hyundai also offers the first-ever long-range EV in India, the Kona Electric, which will be a direct rival to the upcoming ZS EV. However, this particular model does not come equipped with an air filter. Between the Kona and the ZS EV, the latter has a bigger battery, faster charging and less range.

The ZS electric SUV is expected to be offered in a single top-spec variant when launched in India. It will likely be priced under the Rs 25 lakh mark.
