MG ZS EV

DRIVING EXPERIENCE

Q. WHAT DOES IT FEEL LIKE TO DRIVE AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE?

A. Driving an electric car is very similar to driving a conventional car, but without the noisy petrol or diesel engine. Without any transmission, the MG ZS EV is very smooth to drive with instant and effortless response to throttle and braking inputs. The instant torque delivery of an electric motor also gives strong and seamless acceleration.

Q. WHAT IS REGENERATIVE BRAKING?

A. During acceleration and constant speed driving, the electric motors consume energy from the battery. When slowing down or braking, the motor then acts like a generator and feeds electrical energy back to the battery. This partly recharges the battery to maximize the vehicle's range. The MG ZS EV has three levels of regeneration, so that drivers can choose the battery recharging they would like.

Q. HOW DOES THE MG ZS EV HANDLING COMPARE TO A CONVENTIONAL VEHICLE?

A. Compared to other electric models, the MG ZS EV has the battery mounted underfloor, low and centrally to improve handling and weight distribution. The centre of gravity is also lower in an MG ZS EV which gives improved handling in all dynamic situations.

Q. SOMETIMES A PUMPING NOISE CAN BE HEARD WHEN APPLYING THE BRAKES. WHAT IS THIS NOISE?

A. This is entirely normal. Because there is no petrol or diesel engine, the brake vacuum assistance needs to be provided by a separate electrical pump. The noise is simply the pump working to assist the brakes. Because MG ZS EV is a very quiet electric vehicle, it means that the pump can be heard more easily.

Q. SOMETIMES AN EXTERNAL DRONING NOISE CAN BE HEARD WHEN DRIVING THE VEHICLE. WHAT IS THIS NOISE?

A. This is completely normal. Due to regulations for electric vehicles, the MG ZS EV is required to be fitted with an exterior noise generator. This is because at low speeds the MG ZS EV is very quiet, and the noise generator is used to warn pedestrians and cyclists.

Q. DOES THE MG ZS EV HAVE THE “ONE PEDAL DRIVING” FEATURE?

A. Yes. The MG ZS EV on the highest KERS mode uses regenerative braking to drive with just the throttle pedal in most situations, allowing for smooth acceleration and slowing. It is, however, the responsibility of the driver to use the brakes where needed.
