Local reviews on New Zealand roads

Ecotricity
MG ZS EV (first gen)

"I'm kind of struggling to find fault with it. There's a few issues I'll show you very soon, but right now if this was a car for the general populace it's ticking a lot of boxes."

MG ZS EV Long Range – how far can it drive?

"It seems like MG, with this car could become what the Mitsubishi Sigma was in the 80s, or what the Corolla was in the 90s. This could be the perfect car for most Kiwi families. This is a big comeback - this is a bigger comeback since Elon Musk's hairline."

MG ZS EV versus BYD ATTO 3 – Which is Better? We find out!

"I've spoken to both owners of both vehicles and both of them are stupidly satisfied. So I don't think it matters too much which one you go for - you're not going to be unhappy."

MG ZS EV: Still the cheapest, new EV in NZ!

"I mean seriously, if you're in the market for an electric car and the ZS EV meets your range and price requirements - honestly you'd be crazy not to at least give it a test drive because in terms of bang for
buck this is number one."

MG ZS rEVisited – MG ZS EV review NZ

"The new MG ZS EV is better than the previous model in virtually every way (just a little less aggressive off the mark and that terrifying Lane Keep Assist) and is therefore EVEN better value. It sits nicely on the road and offers plenty of range for those out of town treks – what’s more, thanks to V2L, you can even stop and make your own coffee along the way."
