The electric vehicle landscape is rapidly changing as both technology and interest evolve, and the coming years will see many more EVs take to the roads. MG Motor Australia is excited to be taking charge of this evolution with the new ZS EV, HS Plus EV and our ChargeHub accessory. 

MG electric vehicles and plug in hybrids are becoming increasingly more popular on Australian roads. you might also be surprised to hear that making the switch isn't as much of a big step as you may think – you just might need to consider are few extra characteristics, such as range and rapid charging speed if you’re like most Australians and love to discover this amazing country with a family road trip.

You can still enjoy your road trip while benefiting from EV, saving you money and helping to reduce our carbon footprint by having both a plug in hybrid that gives you city savings and typical country driving via a petrol engine and a full EV that will give you options on purpose fit driving and shield you from rising fuel costs.

The good news? MG has solutions for both a family electric or plug in that’ll suit the whole family. With that in mind, if you buy a MG HS Plus EV Essence and a MG ZS EV Essence within a 6 month timeframe, you will be eligible to get a bonus MG ChargeHub worth $1,990 AUD. 

MG Motor Australia are aiming to encourage families to begin their transformation from internal combustion engines (petrol and diesel) vehicles to EV’s by enabling people to become an all electric family with the MG ZS EV and a transitional solution, with the MG HS + EV.

The MG range provides the best of both worlds for electric motoring around town, matched with the peace of mind of a fuel efficient turbo-charged combustion engine for extended highway driving, like a traditional car would.

MG Motor Australia is continuing to see strong customer demand for our range of electric vehicles (ZS EV) and the plug-in hybrid variant (HS Plus EV).  We know this is front of mind for plenty of people in Australia, thanks to rising fuel prices, increasing climate change awareness and the societal focus on incentivising the switch that impacts both people and the planet.

With our ZS EV’s improved range, charging times shortened and the growing availability of rapid charge locations in Australia, there's really never been a better time to go electric.

But which one is right for your family? Why not both? And we’ll bundle in a complementary 7kw ChargeHub* (T&CS).

The HS Plus EV is a popular choice. The extra interior space means there's more room for child seats, school bags, sports equipment and ever growing legs, while the combination of an electric motor for pure EV driving and a turbocharged petrol engine means you don't have to scrimp on things like performance or interstate holidays.

However, it's not just about carrying stuff. The ZS EV can also genuinely be used as your main family car as its packed with comfort, safety equipment including MG Pilot (Intelligent Speed Assist & Traffic Jam Assist) and provides a healthy range of 320kms on a full charge. It is also capable of rapid charging at over 3,000 locations Australia wide or you can charge at your own home.
At MG, we’re proud to be taking  charge when it comes to creating electric vehicle infrastructure by supplying our MG ChargeHub in houses, hotels and motels around the country. The Aurora 7kw and 11kw charging stations are both compatible with all modern EV models using Type 2 charge ports.

Our approach to supporting people make the switch is part of our commitment to ensure all can access infrastructure equally.  

The ZS EV’s range of 320 km, which means most day-to-day drives are well within the ZS EV’s range, whether it’s a short commute, trip to the shops or seeing friends and relatives. For most people, journeys beyond an EV’s range are only made once or twice a year—on annual holidays or seasonal trips around the new year.

Most EV owners will also have a second car and as mentioned, our MG HS Plus EV is equipped with a electric motor for pure EV driving and a turbocharged petrol engine for longer trips, the HS +EV delivers zero emission driving when you want it and peace of mind for longer distance when you need it.

The ZS EV Essence and HS Plus EV Essence both provide affordable luxury in an electric package. Owning both of these models will mean nothing is left to be desired, with its world class technology and benchmark design now with both petrol and electric technology in one and a pure EV for day to day duties.
