How are we responding to MG.
Also, with China holding a near monopoly on Lithium what do we do? Any alternative sources of Li. Please advise.
Not sure how it came to be known. This shows the reserves across countries

Chile does have very active mining and people are complaining about use of lots of water that is used.

However, With regards to sales, it will concur - If only, efficiency is sought in Absolution, instead of whole package

Greetings All,

Update from my side :-

-Completed 6500 Kms
-In Love with the Car

-Ultra Slow Charger Went Kaput last Month - Long Story short - Due to Covid situation, the Car had to be permanently used in our native - Vijayawada, AP.And Since, there is no Service here yet, the 6 hrs 7.4kw Medium Charger, could not be installed. So, I am charging the Car solely with 19 hrs 3kw Portable Charger (which is supposed to be used less frequently). Either, because of this abuse or because of voltage fluctuations in Rainy season, it died.

Contacted MG Bangalore. Sent the failed portable charger to them over courier. In the mean while, charged my car in MG Vijayawada. After 10 working days, A Free Replacement Part has been dispatched to my local MG Vijayawada. Received it. Smooth. Liked MG Service Experience. Word is that, ZS EV is going to be launched here in Vijayawada next month. Which makes the Scheduled Services and 7kw charger installation easy.

Still Busy with Covid Duties. Hence, Could not write a comprehensive ownership experience yet.

Since the ZS EV is brought down as kits and assembled in India, it could be a possibility. When they stop making these kits, they'll have to bring in the new ines, hence a launch of the facelift is imminent.

However, it's a bit too soon for a facelift.

They are different vehicles. You can't compare an electric vehicle to one with an internal combustion engine. Size wise, the ZS EV is more on the lines of Creta and S Cross. The Hector has a lot more space.

The regular ZS is sold with a petrol engine and the same engines do duty on the Hector as well. If there's a comparison, the ZS Petrol is the preferred car because of the power to weight ratio.

A friend's booking no is in the 1200's. I've seen the email sent by MG. Don't really think they can fake that.

But all those who pay the booking amount do not necessarily buy the car later.

Mod Note: BHPian yajaman99's MG ZS EV Report has been taken live at this link. Please continue the discussion over on the new thread. Thanks!
