The first-ever customer delivery of a fully electric MG has taken place at Bushey Heath Garage in Hertfordshire, where Richard Jackson received the keys to his new ZS EV Exclusive.
The ‘milestone’ handover also marked the start of customer deliveries for ZS EVs across MG’s 100-strong dealer network.
Since the car was launched to the media in July, it has become a ‘sales sensation’, with MG selling 2,000 units in the first 60 days of order books opening.
Positioned as an affordable family-friendly electric car, the ZS EV offers a WLTP-accredited (World-wide Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure) range of 163 miles. Daniel Gregorious, head of sales and marketing at MG Motor UK, said: “Everyone at MG would firstly like to welcome Mr Jackson to the MG family and congratulate him on becoming the first MG ZS EV owner in the UK.
“This is a tremendous occasion for the MG brand, as it represents another big milestone in our mid-term growth plan.
We’ve made big investments in new technology, and we’re proud to be bringing affordable zero-emissions motoring to UK car buyers.”
MG is offering grants of up to £3,500 for ZS EV models; this is on top of the government’s own £3,500 plug-in car grant.
The MG grant applies until the 3,000th retail order and is open exclusively to UK residents.
