Good Price, I was hoping MG will undercut Kona by at least one lakh. They did it for the people who booked it early.
It's a good thing, I booked it as well. Will evaluate fully before I make my decision between Nexon, ZS or Kona.
On road price in Bangalore will be around 23.5L for the early birds, this is lower than the Ex-showroom pricing of Kona.

23,5 Lac appears to be expensive and contrary to their publicity of having stopped bookings, I was approached by Dealer to just share booking form and documents. I have my doubts if people are going to buy at these prices. Until Government supports manufacturers, I don't see any major increase in EV sales.

But you are comparing the base variant price of ZS EV to Kona pricing which has even more features than ZS's high-end variant.

I would still go with Kona as it has much better efficiency than ZS EV and comes with LG Chem batteries which are the best in the business.

I am not. I am comparing the exclusive variant with Kona.
There is no road tax in Karnataka for EVs.
The exclusive variant has features comparable to Kona.
Also MG is more proactive in setting up charging infra over Hyundai.

The ZS EV is bigger, is more SUVish, the connected car features and the massive panoramic sunroof are a big draw, and let's face it: Electric cars give bragging rights, so I'm sure these bling factors will be talking points and will be a major lure for potential buyers. I foresee that the ZS EV will sell in far superior numbers than the Kona.

As far as the battery is concerned, CATL is now the world's largest Lithium Ion battery manufacturer. And MG is offering a 8 year/1,50,000 Kms warranty, so the consumer won't be bothered by which battery brand of their EV is older, hence more reliable.

I am sorry. I forgot the part where you mentioned that you already booked the ZS EV in which case your price will be Rs 22.58 lakhs.

Agree with bigger part but that does not translate to under-thigh support for rear seat passengers in ZS EV.

CATL is the biggest battery manufacturer but they are mostly selling to local Chinese brands currently. They do have few future contracts with major companies like VW but that is still for the sales in China. The reason for CATL becoming the biggest manufacturer is mainly because of China allowing subsidies for EVs with local company batteries only.

As per CATL's own roadmap itself, their batteries much lesser density than the competition like LG Chem and Panasonic. Kona also has more range than MG despite having a smaller battery.

Overdrive just posted an interview and Gaurav Gupta said that customers might have to wait up to 6 months for their cars to be delivered

They seem pretty confident that their bookings are genuine and will convert to actual sales

The attrition rate of Hector bookings was ~12% according to him

Implementation of EVs for government use will put an end to a major fuel reimbursement and maintenance scam. I hope all the Innovas get replaced with these.

On a lighter note:
Its a good idea for the government officials to own a MG first, this way even MG will be cautious with the product quality.



I am not in the market for an EV, yet; but if I was, I would have gone ahead and brought myself a Nexon EV. Especially with all the news of Hectors catching up fire.
Batteries in general are flammable, and then its MG, I would not take that big of a risk.

With over 2,800 orders received for the ZS EV, way above its expectations, MG Motor India is considering to ramp up production of the vehicle to 300 or 400 units a month after three or four months, up from 200 units a month currently.

Did a test drive today. Didn't face any problems getting used to the car while leaving the accelerator. Was quite impressed with the drive and the overall package. The only con I can think of is that the car is bumpier than I would have liked.

I am kinda leaning towards going ahead with the purchase. Will take a final call in the coming week. Maybe one more test drive.

I still have 1.5 years left on my lease for my Creta but have gotten bitten by this EV beauty. I called the MG showroom for checking delivery timelines, approx 4 months wait period. Will plan for a test drive in the coming weeks just to see if it is worth the wait as the next change. Hopefully Karnataka Govt does not remove the No Road Tax policy for EVs seeing the increase in demand for the same.
