Nice review @NT56. Can you tell me how you got the radio to stop playing when started? I have the same White ZS and am loving it. I just hope they will make ADAS an upgradable option sometime in the future.

Is there a circular for other EVs like Nexon.
LFP means one can always fast charge at 1C and deplete the battery to 10% SOC, charge back to 100% with no loss in battery life and is a much safer chemistry.

The same cannot be said to Kona and other EV vehicles from Kia and hyundai which use Lipo battery one of the most unsafe chemistry and shorter cycle life.

This is interesting

The GVW for Excite and Exclusive are the same so it could put an end to the rumors of a smaller battery

Also, 3 entries for exclusive stand for 3 colors and only one entry for excite which could mean that excite would come in just 1 color option?

Go to radio and switch to DRM (AM/FM/DRM). It's a bad workaround but works for me because I don't listen to radio and I don't have to repeat this.

My SA told me there is no wiring for ADAS hardware in the car. But these folks are not very knowledgeable so can't rely on everything they say.

Still makes me scratch my head as to why did they give the front radar. I remember someone on youtube taking off the radar cover to show the hardware. Can you confirm that its the case with the final delivery version as well? it would be awesome if they could give me front collision warning and avoidance, I dont even care about the adaptive cruise control

Called a bunch of detailing outlets today here in NCR. Either they donít have experience with the ZS EV or are saying that they will stick to ceramic coating for the front. I feel that defeats the whole purpose.

Tbh, I don't blame them. It'll probably be an expensive and difficult experiment without a guaranteed result since it might lead to a lot of wastage. I wouldn't do it on a customer's car until I manage to do it on my own car and it lasts for a while. It's a very complicated pattern after all. Too many ridges are tough for PPF. One option would be to make incisions around the deep edges of each of those ridges in the pattern. It might work but look shabby depending on the quality of work. Let's hope I can manage to figure it out.

Thank you so much for this info! I managed to grill my RM about the color queue. He was shocked that I knew about it and told me he'd call me back. I was informed that I was number 3 in the national queue for the black color. He said that there is an order in Hyderabad but he's been unsure if he wants to make the purchase or not now.

Sorry I missed this. I was getting the car through a company lease. I was asked to call the lease company contact who sits in Faridabad, he told me about the queue. When I asked my RM, he had no clue. I kept on pushing and finally he directed me to his superior. He told me about the system where they can see the queue and told me of my status. You could do the same. Just ask them about the queue and if your RM cannot answer, ask him for his supervisor’s contact.

Can we use the air conditioning in the car in the MG ZS EV while you put it on charging be it slow or fast?

It shouldn't be a problem in any EV but if the battery is really low on charge then it probably will not run air con.
Generally car air conditioner pulls around 1.3kw of power and around 3kw of initial start up power. If the air conditioner compressor has a BLDC or PMDC motor then it will not have the inrush current. ( just like your household inverter AC).

So hypothetically, if you have a 3kw charger then only 1.7kw will be available for charging with remaining power being used to run the air conditioner (assuming the compressor as a rated power consumption of 1.3kw and is at its max power consumption).

So, during the startup all the power from charger is supplied to the AC? Or do you think both the battery and charger help the AC to start?

Thanks for your insights.
