List of charging stations for the upcoming electric SUV

  • MG ZS EV uses a 44.5kWh lithium-ion battery for expected range of over 400km.
  • The battery can be charged from 0-80 per cent in 40 minutes using a 50kW fast charger.
  • MG has shared a list of fast-charging stations set up ahead of ZS EV launch in January 2020.
  • MG is set to reveal the ZS EV in December 2019.
  • The list only covers 7 cities at the moment, expected to grow as EV infrastructure expands.

The MG ZS electric SUV is expected to arrive in India by January 2020 and has already been listed on the carmaker’s Indian website. Its 44.5kWh lithium-ion battery can be charged from 0 to 80 per cent in 40 minutes using a 50kW DC fast charger and MG has already listed all the locations where these fast chargers can be found for future ZS EV owners in India. The carmaker will reveal the India-spec SUV in December 2019.

Here are the details of where to find the MG fast chargers:

City Charging Stations
Delhi NCR Shivaji Marg
Lajpat Nagar-IV
Sector- 8, Noida
Mumbai Jogeshwari East
Thane West
Bengaluru Lava Kusha Nagar, Hosur Road
B Narayanapura
Hyderabad Banjara Hills
Ahmedabad Makarba

The MG fast-charging coverage is limited to just 7 cities for now but expect it grow as EV infrastructure expands. Since the India-spec model of the ZS EV is expected to feature the same CSS and Type 2 ports, it should be rechargable from any compatible fast-charging station, similar to the Hyundai Kona Electric. However, fast charging is not the only way to charge up MG will offer a home charger too, which would take over 6 hours to replenish the battery.

On a full charge, the MG ZS EV is expected to have a claimed range of over 400km. The electric motor produces 150PS of power and 350Nm of torque. Hybrid and regular combustion engine variants of the ZS compact SUV are expected to be introduced in India later on while the India-spec ZS EV is due to make its debut in December 2019.

The MG ZS EV is expected to be offered in feature-loaded variants with a starting price of around Rs 20 lakh. Its only rival at launch, as a long-range EV, would be the Hyundai Kona while the 2020 Tata Nexon EV is expected to offer a range of up to 300km.
