MG Motor UK ZS Car leasing
Can MG really go from being a peripheral and budget car manufacturer into being one of the UK’s leading EV producers? Well that’s exactly what happened in 2021, with the brand’s SUV option, the ZS, becoming the 10th most popular EV in the UK – nearly 5,500 were registered! So, what is the secret to MG’s success? One of the major hurdles to electric vehicle transition is cost … EVs, or the early options, have been expensive compared to combustion engine alternatives. But not with MG, as their initial ZS 51 kWh entered the UK at prices sub-£30,000 (and, at the time, benefitted from the Government’s Plug-In grant).
And where MG really seem to have listened to the UK automotive market is that they produced an SUV as part of their zero-emission product suite. The UK has become more and more 4x4 / crossover / SUV centric, as families look to operate one car which essentially does everything (while maintaining some positive aesthetics).
And MG have an incredible following from the older-generation who have, quite surprisingly, become key early-adopters. As there is no age limit (maximum) with electric car leasing, the ability to use a car for 2 – 4 years, on a set mileage and with all maintenance included has proved to be a valuable financial product for older-drivers. And the move to electric has become even more positive, with a tendency for lower-mileage and urban stop-start driving. This is where an electric MG really shines.
The concern with MG is that their battery technology would be insufficient compared to the competitors, like the Mercedes EQA, VW ID.4 or the Skoda Enyaq. And while low-mileage drivers have very little to fear, the introduction of a longer-range 73 kWh battery demonstrates just how attune to the UK market this manufacturer is fast-becoming
With a standard 51 kWh battery offering 140 miles of range in winter (on a full charge) coupled with 190 miles in summer, this car is more than capable of becoming a useful daily car. For those drivers with range-anxiety, the bigger 73 kWh option will enhance this to 195 miles in winter and 260 miles in summer on a full-charge. And it’s not just about the range with an electric car, one of the key facets is the “charging rate” which is the car’s ability to charge on AC and DC.
Using the e-car lease “Living with …” tools, all this important information is set out to our personal and business contract hire customers. In the case of the MG ZS, the 7.4 kW AC max charging rate equates to 11 hours of charging time on the bigger battery (from 0-100%) with a 76 kWh DC maximum allowing for 43 minute 10-80% charge times. Because of the smaller battery, the 51 kWh battery will take round 8 hours on the 7.4 kW max.
With charging, one of the key considerations is your charging infrastructure – will you be installing at home or is your business putting in place a workplace scheme? For company car drivers, especially high-mileage customers, understanding how / when / where charging sessions will be carried out is paramount. If you have off-road parking then you should get a charge point installed for your new MG ZS. Do e-car lease recommend a particular charge point? At this time, we don’t but we can introduce you to a number of charge point providers / charge point comparison companies who can assist. And for further advice, just access some of the charging guides
But leasing a new MG ZS personally, via a salary scheme or through a business contract hire arrangement is more than just a price per month consideration. While budgets and affordability are crucial, all customers should be taking into account Whole of Life costs (servicing, maintenance, tyres, fuel, insurance and company car tax) while assessing the EV-lifestyle using our guides and tools. Leasing is very much a fixed term product, which can be ended only by a process known as Early Termination. Unlike a PCP, you cannot simply hand the vehicle back to a finance company when you have paid over half of the total amount payable.

How far an EV can travel on a full charge is often one of the first questions that all customers ask, whether they be personal, business or salary sacrifice. With more and more vehicles now offering 200 mile+ ranges, the needs of many UK drivers are met. For those low-mileage drivers, with stop/start urban driving this is perhaps less of an issue. For more moderate to high-mileage customers they do need to use the e-car lease “Living with ...” tools to completely understand the range of their new MG ZS. Weathers conditions, driver-behaviours and the types of journey are all influential on the range. At e-car lease we try to avoid using just one figure for a range as these factors massively change how your new electric car performs. In brief, please see the combined ranges below for the ZS EV:
• 51 kWh = 165 miles; and
• 73 kWh = 230 miles.
