MG Motor UK is pleased to announce that the first truly affordable, family-friendly electric car, MG ZS EV, has achieved the coveted Five Star Euro NCAP rating. As the brand’s first-ever battery electric car, MG ZS EV has been a huge sales success since launch. Securing a Five Star Euro NCAP rating further underlines the car’s innovation and value-for-money, further supported by MG’s famous 7 Year Warranty.
MG ZS EV impressed in all areas of the Euro NCAP test, including the four key test categories: Adult Occupant, Child Occupant, Vulnerable Road User and Safety Assist. Majoring on family-friendly space and practicality, MG ZS EV is intelligently packaged. The current Euro NCAP tests are the most stringent ever, making this Five Star rating a significant achievement for MG. MG’s engineering prowess is further confirmed by the fact that All New MG HS, the brand’s new flagship SUV, also achieved the maximum Five Star rating in the same Euro NCAP testing round.
As MG’s most high-tech car ever, ZS EV brings electric car technology to a wider audience and represents an exciting era in the company’s history. The MG Pilot suite of driver aids underpins safety in a car that’s been designed and engineered to protect its occupants. Features such as Active Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane Keep Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control were all key factors in ZS EV’s Five Star rating.
Daniel Gregorious, Head of Sales & Marketing at MG Motor UK, said: “We’re entering a new chapter of MG’s history with ZS EV, so it’s really pleasing to see that our first-ever electric car has performed do well in the tough Euro NCAP safety tests.
