MG ZS EV officially was handed over to first customers in the UK. Over 2,000 were already ordered.

As promised, MG has started customer deliveries of its all-electric and quite affordable ZS EV model in the UK, where now it's effectively available from £21,995 (€24,725/$27,032) after incentives.

The first car, out of over 2,000 ordered within 60 days since launch, was delivered by Bushey Heath Garage in Bushey, Hertfordshire to Richard Jackson, who selected the top ZS EV Exclusive trim and Dynamic Red color.

Jonathan O’Donoghue, Managing Director at Bushey Heath Garage, said:

“We are thrilled to be able to hand the keys to Mr Jackson’s new ZS EV. We pride ourselves on offering the very best customer service and our upgraded on-site charging facilities means that Mr Jackson can utilise our local infrastructure when he requires it. We’re glad to be part of history delivering the first-ever all-electric MG car and judging by the customer interest already, there are many more who will be making the switch to electric with MG soon.”

Daniel Gregorious, Head of Sales & Marketing, MG Motor UK, said:

“Everyone at MG would firstly like to welcome Mr Jackson to the MG family and also on becoming the first MG ZS EV owner in the UK. This is a tremendous occasion for the MG brand as it represents another big milestone in our mid-term growth plan. We’ve made big investments in new technology and we’re proud to be bringing affordable zero emissions motoring to UK car buyers”.
