The MG ZS EV is the family-friendly electric car, designed for those who want all the advantages of a zero-emissions vehicle without compromising on practicality or style.

The car comes with a 105kW electric motor, with a 44.5kWh battery pack that delivers a WLTP-certified driving range of up to 263km. The plug-in charging port, which is the standard European CCS2 design, is located behind a fold-up panel in the grille.

The MG ZS EV can cope with all charging modes from a three-pin home plug, which takes around seven hours for a full charge, through to an 85kW ‘fast charger’ that will take the battery to 80 per cent in 45 minutes.

The MG ZS EV comes with an ANCAP rating of 5 stars.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you plug an electric car into a regular outlet?

Yes, all electric car subscriptions come with a slow (trickle) charger that can be connected to a general-purpose outlet, or household power point. Charging your car with these chargers can be slow but they can safely charge the battery all day, or night without damaging it. Most feature automatic cycles that turn off the charger when the battery is at its optimum capacity.

Where can you charge my electric car if you’re not home?

While home charging may be cheaper and easier day-to-day, it won’t serve you on longer journeys. For these trips, you’ll need to turn to the growing number of public charging stations. The Electric Vehicle Council provides a map of charging stations across Australia. Note that these may require a fee in the same way that you pay for petrol.

What happens if I run out of battery on the road?

Your electric car subscription comes with Australia-wide roadside assistance. This covers you and any approved drivers 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. And as a sonnenDrive subscriber, you have unlimited callouts for flat batteries (charges), key lock-outs, flat tyre changes, breakdown, towing and more.

Do I need to be a sonnen customer to subscribe an electric car?

No. You can subscribe as normal to any vehicle listed on this or carbar’s main site. However, if you don’t have a sonnenBatterie you will not benefit from using your own energy supply for clean and sustainable driving. Also as part of the sonnenCommunity, you’ll also save $100 on the upfront fee.
