I work for a MG dealer and I am quite excited about this, if the price is reasonable and the range sensible it should do well!

Very excited to have a MG dealer in Horsham West Sussex now- i'll be buying a ZS EV once they are in stock locally.

Was speaking to a MG sales manager today after booking in our ZS for it's first service and they are taking somewhere around £24k for the eZS and it sounds good, and they have fitted the batteries in the chassis apparently to keep the weight down and also keep the same sized boot.

Also the HS (replacement for the GS) is going to be available as a hybrid all wheel drive with a petrol engine driving the front wheels and an electric motor driving the rears.

Also mentioned a sports car coming in 2023.

It an exciting time for MG

This is just what is needed albeit several years late. For the first time in years I thought seriously about buying a 16 plate Corsa. Not long now before I look seriously at a 2 or 3 years old ZS.

They're talking about it being a competitor to the Hyundai Kona which has been raved about.


There is a MG dealership down in Warrington I think? I'll go & have a gander at this come September. The MG eZS presented in China in 2018 was rated at up to 268 miles (431 km) which is in Kona territory.

Sounds great

My only worry is can the very few dealers that are scattered about the UK actually work on these cars if they go wrong, warranty work etc ?

Electric vehicles need special maintenance, hence special technician training, will MG UK bother to invest money into this for us ?

I wait in anticipation as this MG electrification will boost UK MG sales which would be fantastic, let's just hope they don't mess it up
