The MG ZS is a fully electric compact SUV from the British-born, Chinese-owned MG brand. It’s also very popular, mainly because it offers you an awful lot of car for an extremely low price to lease.
It doesn’t break new ground, but the MG ZS is a lot more spacious than other EVs at this price point, so as a budget family offering it’s got the market sewn up.
Key highlights of the MG Motor UK ZS
Anyone who says electric cars are too expensive should check out the leasing deals on the MG ZS EV. If you need a family car or an everyday commuter with a bit of space, nothing else can touch it for value-for-money.
The ZS is a petrol-powered car converted to electric power, and while it might not turn heads with its design, the practicality is staggering for the money. For starters, you get a solid and well-equipped interior with easily enough room for four adults and a big 470-litre boot.
The MG ZS EV also delivers when it comes to range, proving to make the most of its relatively small battery. A comfortable ride means lumps and bumps are shaken off with the minimum of fuss, while it’s pretty quick off the mark.
Wondering where the shortcuts are to make it so cheap? Well they aren’t in safety or reliability. The ZS EV scored the full five stars in Euro NCAP safety testing (two more than the petrol ZS) while it also gets an impressive seven-year warranty, and is known to be reliable according to drivers. In fact, the MG is one of those cars that you can’t believe is being sold for so little.
MG Motor UK ZS performance & range
The ZS EV is quicker than you might think, making the petrol version look sluggish. You’ll need just over 8 seconds for 0-62mph, which puts it pretty close to much more expensive, premium electric SUVs.
The ZS also holds its own when it comes to range. Entry-level 51kWh versions offer a respectable 198 miles of official range, but the Long Range model with its 73kWh battery promises 273 miles on a charge. That’s more than some EVs costing more than twice the price.
Charging times aren’t quite as impressive, but you’ll still go from 10-80% charge in 37 minutes on the Long Range model, or 43 minutes on the slower charging Standard Range car.

If you’re excited at the prospect of leasing an MG electric car, the MG5 is definitely worth a look. It performs much the same as the ZS, and has the same in-car technology, and swaps a taller SUV body for a longer estate body. If the brand doesn’t matter, consider some of the other compact SUVs dominating the EV leasing world. Some of the closest competitors of the MG5 include the Hyundai Kona, Kia e-Niro, and the Peugeot e-2008, although they can’t match the value offered here.

MG’s ZS is an EV that is rapidly growing in popularity, combining everyday practicality, range and affordability. It also includes plenty of standard equipment, good safety and a long warranty to give you piece-of-mind.
There are plenty of benefits to leasing your MG ZS with GRIDSERVE Car Leasing, including the ability to claim three months of free charging on the entirety of the GRIDSERVE Electric Highway charging network, featuring 160+ locations. It’s a simple process too: lease a car and we’ll send a contactless charging card in the post. As well as this, we will deliver your new MG ZS EV right to your door on a day of your choosing.
The exact range you get from your ZS will depend on the specific model you choose, with the Long Range edition providing 273 miles of official range, which is around 232 miles as a real-world estimate. The SE and Trophy EV versions have lower range figures, offering 198 miles of official range, with a real-world estimate of 168 miles.
With a GRIDSERVE Car Leasing deal, contract terms of either 24, 36, or 48 months are available to choose from, meaning you can tailor the agreement to suit your specific needs. The contract length is tied to the price you pay too, so having a longer lease agreement means you will pay less each month.
Traditionally, MG has always been a brand that performs well on reliability surveys and testing, with the ZS model being no exception. You can rely on this car to not only take you from A to B every day in style but it’ll require very little maintenance over the course of your ZS EV lease deal too.
