Looking forward to hearing about your delightful experience. May be a few pictures as well. BTW have you faced the dust issue other owners are talking about?

No solutions yet.

Anywhere where thereís dust (most of gurgaon). The car gets dirty really fast!
I asked MG if the spoiler extension might help and I was shocked by the response. They said, it wont work and that its not a widespread problem. Suggested solution? Get a ceramic coating from MG. I told them that I already got one and they simply said that the quality might not be good enough.

I think I gave you a solution. If you have any doubts about it, check YouTube for the MG4, which has the spoiler below the rear windshield :

Hey!
Yes but as of now no such oem accessories exist. Do you know where I could get my hands on one? DIY might be a bit of a stretch for me as I think it might look really shabby

LOL clearly they haven't spoken to any MG ZS EV owner.

I was annoyed by the problem too but have just given my car wash person a high quality microfiber and a jopasu to make sure the rear gets wiped down every day.

Interesting to see the MG4 has done away with the rear wiper! Bigger loss than the little spoiler at the back (which seems to be only in the top end variant).

Has anyone solved the mystery of PPF on the front yet. All applicators Iíve checked with so far have told me that they wont be able to put ppf on the front. The cut out on front will be a dirt magnet in my opinion. I saw a ZS EV in the UK on youtube that vinyl on the front, I understand that vinyl is very thin compared to ppf. Is it possible to use a thinner PPF on the front instead of the usual 180 microns?

Thats very much like the Ioniq 5. I have heard people complaining about the same. The idea is that the wind will clean the rear but then it gets dirty when the car is parked plus the rainy season is always a pain.

Will this be the sub 20 lakh car the MG was planning on for next year?

I think so. It's the most popular, and the most obvious choice!
BYD, you'll be happy to know, have confirmed that the Atto 3 is coming to India! It's all over the press!

2022 MG ZS EV Facelift Review-175cf69bfac94a4e99c800cb160d37c9.jpeg

An over enthusiastic guy decided to crash into my car on a traffic light.

The complete cost was covered by the insurance but the invoice was for 63000 just for the rear bumper. I was shocked tbh.

Sorry to hear about the accident.
Did you get a receipt of parts replaced/repaired?

Re: 2022 MG ZS EV Facelift Review

So the dealership is offering to allot a Red car to me instead of the black that I booked. They cannot commit to when a black car can be alloted. I'm surprised that they haven't made a black car despite having 6 months to make it Anyone else facing the same tune?

Buddy, you're lucky, I think they're giving you my car which I have cancelled last week.

No way, they'll offer other color than what you've booked unless it's a cancellation. Rather than waiting further, i would say bite the bullet.

Whether you like Red or not, atleast you're getting a car, while in my case, I had booked Red but was open to other colors also, but the waiting was never going to end soon.

Made up mind to look at Diesel options in that price range and hence i have up on my booking.

I got the same offer about a month back. Booked silver months ago but then got a call from the dealership telling me I can take delivery of a red ZS EV if I can do immediate payment. I refused and told them I wanted silver or black. Been waiting since then.

Here is a breakdown.

The bumper is actually in 2 pieces. Upper and lower. Then there is a charge for painting the upper bumper and then finally the inserts in the bumper
