Earlier this fall we were at Broom in Belgium – at the official launch of the new MG ZS EV electric car.
This is a compact SUV with a very favorable price tag. Initially, it was promised to be launched in Norway in early October. But then everything went quiet – until MG now comes out with a press release stating that the car will be available in Norway from November.
This new electric SUV is equipped with a 44.5 kWt battery that provides a range of 263 kilometers according to WLTP standards, and the ability to charge from 0 to 80 percent in 40 minutes.
Favorable initial price
Thus, the MG ZS EV will go on sale in Norway during November. Unlike the competitors, there is no long waiting list, the car is ready for immediate delivery.
It comes in two versions, Comfort and Luxury, and the initial prices of both editions are NOK 229,990 and NOK 249,990 respectively. The MG ZS EV is one of the most affordable in its class.

Reserve from November
Based on the press release, it seems that not all the pieces are around the car distribution. But MG stated that they were "approaching a one-way distribution agreement" with Danish Nic. Christiansen group.
By the way, they are not small children in this context. The company is an importer of Honda, Hyundai, SsangYong and Jaguar Land Rover to Denmark. They also support the import of Jaguar Land Rovers into Norway.
So they have extensive experience with electric cars. And it cannot be said that there is direct competition between Jaguar I-Pace and MG ZS …
Starting in November, Norwegian customers can order MG ZS EV, through the company's website. We expect more details about the shop / showroom and car services at that time.
