    About the MG ZS EV

    The MG ZS EV enters 2024 with no specification changes but price increases of between $1000-$2000.

    Pricing for the base Excite and mid-range Essence is up by $1000 while the top-spec Essence Long Range receives a $2000 increase.

    It’s worth mentioning MG Motor Australia reduced the pricing of the ZS EV by up to $6000 in November 2023.

    In 2023, MG Motor Australia CEO Peter Ciao confirmed the brand will be discontinuing the base Excite to make way for the MG 4 electric hatchback, however the timing for its official departure is yet to be confirmed.

    Photos and Images of the MG ZS EV Interior

    The overall layout of the MG ZS remains much the same inside, with a comfortable and spacious cabin.

    Where the biggest changes come are the instrument cluster and centre console. The former is now an all-digital affair with a more modern look that remains simple to read at a glance.

    Some manufacturers like to pack out these digital instrument displays with layers of information, but MG keeps it refreshingly simple.

    New materials on the dashboard fascia include a faux carbon-fibre effect, but by far the most welcome change is the replacement of the cheap and dated-looking touchscreen with a larger, more up-to-date 10.1-inch unit. Not only does it appear more modern, but it also reacts far quicker to inputs.
