1.000 cars has been ordered in just 14 days.
After being bought by Chinese, British car manufacturer MG is finally back on the road to recovery and it looks to be in quite a good comeback. After all, they are now only weeks away until their first electric car in the history is going to be released on the road and it seems that people are anxious to get their hands on a brand new MG ZS EV.
In fact, MG has put their new addition on the British market only two weeks ago on 17th of July for customers to buy it before it even reaches the market for the price of £21,495 – government's and MG's grant of £3.500 each inclued. Only 1.000 were to be sold for this price, however, all of them have been sold in just fourteen days. GM has thus decided to exted this move to another 1.000 cars. After that their grant is going to end.
Daniel Gregorious, Head of Sales & Marketing at MG Motor UK; said: “We know that the canny British public can tell a bargain when they see one, but we’ve been blown away by the number of people who’ve moved quickly to secure an electric MG ZS at the launch price of £21,495. By extending our offer to match the government grant for the next 1,000 retail customers, we’re delighted to be able to maintain this offer, even if it’s just for a few more days. To anyone who’s been thinking about ordering a ZS EV, I suggest they do it now!”
MG's plans for the new ZS EV are quite ambitious thou. They are presenting it as 'the first affordable, family-friendly electric car', capable of covering around 270 kilometers on a single charge and equipped with sufficent amount of assistive tecnology on one side and enough spice for a family on the other. It seems that they are planning to go global with a promisse of being able to make up to 300.000 battery packs in single year. We will take an eye on them from September, once they go on sale and on the road.
