It must be a quirk of the MG ZS EV BMS as I've not read about any other BEV manufacturer having to do this.


I wonder if the MG5 ev owners have to do this too.

MG seems to be going from strength to strength as the biggest ever shipment of MG cars arrive in Portbury docks Bristol.

Over a quarter of those cars are the new long range MG 5 BEV.

I'm seeing a few work arounds for the MG BEV's due to the powers that be banning remote App access to European/UK cars due to data protection. One of the big bug bears was starting & stopping charging to take advantage of cheap overnight electricity rates usually between midnight & 05:00 hours.
A gadget from Shelly have come up with a good cheap alternative for a "dumb charger" like mine. https://shellystore.co.uk/product/shelly-1/

As I've mentioned I didn't go with the OLEV grant people because of the high price for a Smart charger even after the £350 OLEV grant.
Mine cost £163 & if I wanted to turn it into a smart charger it would be £9 more

This device which costs £9 will do the exact same job if you need to charge your car via mobile phone App at certain times to take advantage of overnight cheap rate electricity.
