Default New ZS EV

They seem to be very popular And apparently people are placing orders before even seeing them

My wife wants a ZS, planning on getting 1 next year sometime. Now she's seen the EV and is thinking of getting that. Hoping to have a test drive next week, so will report back if we do.

Default Test Drive

Had a test drive of the demo at Mackie Motors MG Brechin for an hour and I thought I would not like it.....alas it is quite a machine. Full of safety features and very quick off the mark. When you think you are doing 40 you are actually doing 50 and so on due to lack of engine noise. Watch your licence of course the driver features kick in and tell you.

Thumbs up from me but the range makes it a second car for now I think. Very impressive though.
Believe the MG HS in Hybrid form not far off. Mackie Motors had firm orders for 26 MG ZS EVs in first six weeks. Even they were surprised. MG outselling Dacia at their franchise now.

Very professional outfit too.

Phoned today, first date we can get a test drive (a mixture of them being fully booked, my shifts and my wife days off), is 17th December. Both booked in to have a go, though it's for her, I'm just intrigued.

The main thing for us, is that we both like a manual gearbox, so not sure either of us will like the go-cart style. However, it would save approx, £160 a month on diesel, more if I use it when I'm on nightshifts, her days off, and school holidays.

Dealer said there's a 5 month wait on these. I'll try and report back when we've been for the test drive.
