MG will test the first electric SUV in Europe
MG Motor introduced its first electric SUV and plans to sell it both in Europe and China. This is a battery version of the small crossover MG ZS, which has an autonomy of 335 km according to European standards.
EV made its debut at the Guangzhou Car Show in November. It is due to be released in Europe, including the United Kingdom, in the first half of 2019, said SAIC Motor, MG’s parent company. The electric MG ZS will be tested on the road in several European countries, such as the United Kingdom, Belgium, Luxembourg, Spain, Germany and France over the next two months, according to SAIC.
In addition to MG ZS, SAIC produces and sells in China the MG3 hatchback, the compact MG6 sedan, the MG GT sports coupe, and two other crossover – MG HS and MG GS. It also distributes the locally produced MG ZS, the compact MG3 sedan, the MG5 and MG6 and the MG GS in Thailand. MG3, MG ZS and MG GS will also be sold in the United Kingdom.

In April, MG launched sales in China of its first alternative energy vehicle, the plug-in hybrid version of the MG6.
