What's the used MG ZS EV hatchback like?
If ever there was such as thing as the perfect used electric car, the MG ZS EV would make a strong case for itself.
Firstly, it's an SUV, which automatically makes it a highly desirable and practical option for potential buyers. Secondly, it was a popular choice when new, so there are plenty to choose from. Finally, its second-hand prices undercut those of its main rivals, so a used ZS EV is a bit of an electric car bargain.
Ride quality can be relatively soft over potholes, but it has a tendency to bounce around over uneven roads. Also, the ZS EV is not as quiet as you'd expect an electric car to be, with plenty of motor whine and high levels of wind and road noise at motorway speeds.
It's not all bad news, though, because the brake pedal has a satisfyingly predictable action to it, making it easy to apply the right amount of pressure to stop smoothly, unlike the Renault Zoe.
The interior is a pleasant surprise, with plenty of soft-touch plastics on its dashboard and some solid-feeling buttons and switches. Thanks to its SUV body, the ZS EV is highly practical.
Head, leg and shoulder room are great front and rear (even with a head room robbing panoramic glass roof), plus the boot is huge compared with many electric car rivals, because the batteries are housed under the rear seats and not the boot floor.
