The MG ZS EV was awarded the Medium EV of the Year title at Company Car & Van Awards in London on January 6.

Praised for easy-to-use technology, impressive safety systems and excellent driving comfort, an expert judging panel assessed all features and functionalities of the ZS EV, pushing its business and fleet credentials to the test.

Company Car & Van, in its review earlier this year stated the ‘well-equipped’ SUV was commended for its range of innovative, driver-friendly technologies, which sit at the heart of the car and in addition to its easy-to-use infotainment touchscreen; the car was praised for its impressive sat nav system, with detailed yet clearly presented map graphics.

It also described the ZS EV as ‘comfortable’ and ‘easy to drive’, with impressive noise insulation and brake energy recuperation and the car was praised in particular for its cost, easily undercutting other mid-range family EVs on the market and reinforcing MG’s reputation for offering incredible value for money.

Editor of Company Car & Van Andrew Walker said what the MG ZS EV does well is to offer something that many customers want adding that It’s attractively priced, comes very well equipped and is a proper practical five-seat family car.

“By launching the ZS EV, MG has most definitely enhanced the EV sector.”

Company Car Today highlighted that as fleet customers do not pay benefit-in-kind tax on electric vehicles, the ZS EV becomes an even more tempting option for business users. Safety systems such as Lane Departure Warning, Front Collision Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control and Traffic Jam Assist with Braking were also listed as highlights where these features unpinned the ZS EV’s recent Five Star Euro NCAP rating, making it one of the safest EVs in its class.

“We are extremely excited to have received this prestigious award for the MG ZS EV”, said Head of Sales & Marketing at MG Motor UK Daniel Gregorious. “Since we launched the SUV in July, our dealerships and orderbooks have been busier than ever before.”

He added that the Medium EV of the Year Award is testament both to this popularity and their dedication to bringing zero emissions to the wider car-buying public and with their ambition to be the number one in EV’s, this is just the start.

The MG ZS EV has already enjoyed widespread success among the media and buyers alike over the course of just a few months and has achieved record-breaking sales for the brand, with more than 3,000 customers having placed their orders.

With the combination of the latest battery-electric technology and a family-friendly design in a value-for-money package, MG ZS EV brings zero emissions motoring to a highly affordable price point.
