MG Motor Australia has confirmed they will be revealing their new ZS EV long range electric car (440km WLTP) alongside the first Australian public-preview of the award winning MG4, at Fully Charged LIVE Australia on the top deck (inside and outside) of the ICC Sydney, overlooking Darling Harbour, on Saturday the 11th and Sunday the 12th March 2023.

Readers should bear in mind that the MG press release has no details on pricing.

Also it doesn’t mention the long range MG 4 or whether the long range ZS EV will be Standard or Trophy full spec, so we’ll have to wait for Fully Charged Live or possibly later to see which versions will be sold here.

Founded by Robert Llewellyn (Red Dwarf, Scrapheap Challenge) the Fully Charged Show is one of the most popular Youtube channels covering electric vehicles.

Event organisers promise to have ‘almost every EV available’ in different zones you can visit including:

  • Electric Alley'(currently available cars)
  • Electric Launchpad (cars that are coming soon)
  • Electric & Eclectic’ zone (electric conversions)
  • Tesla Owners’ zone

There will also be an area showcasing clean energy and home energy technologies with the Home Energy Advice Team (H.E.A.T.) run by Origin Energy as well as a M1CRO MACH1NES area for electric boards, bikes and scooters

There will be 40+ ‘live sessions’ across 2 stages – the Giga Theatre, powered by Polestar, and the Mega Theatre, powered by Enphase Energy. Sessions will be hosted by Fully Charged presenters Robert Llewellyn and Chinese EV expert Elliot Richards as well as several Australian EV Enthusiast YouTubers.

Robert Llewellyn, Founder of the Fully Charged SHOW commented:

“As the husband of a long- suffering Australian, it’s amazing to finally be bringing our unique take on clean energy and electric vehicles to Sydney. It’s hard to describe just how positive these events have been in the UK, US and Europe, and we know that you will have a wonderful weekend.

I’d like to express our gratitude to all of our sponsors and exhibitors for making this possible, not least the NRMA and I’d like to extend a special shoutout to the Electric Vehicle Council too.

Even after all these years, I am still excited about seeing all the new bits of kit on display, not least the cars that we’ve yet to see at home and also the brilliant MG4, as I’ve just bought one and it’s waiting for me back in Britain!”

Peter Ciao, the CEO of MG Motor Australia said he’s excited to showcase the new MG4 and expand the ZS EV model offering with a longer range.

“MG Motor Australia is putting our customer’s priorities at the centre of our soon to be released MG4 and current ZS EV so we can continue providing the best driving experience possible and make EVs’ more accessible to all Australians.

“As the FullyCharged event debuts in Sydney for the first time ever, we are excited to be a part of this event and have the opportunity to showcase our newest model, the MG4.

“We know this model will speak to many people’s needs and wants in Australia and New Zealand as it has with other markets around the world.

“The MG4 is the first MG to be based on our EV-only MSP (Modular Scalable Platform). This introduction of our EV-only platform signals our ongoing commitment to ‘Take Charge’ and intention to move toward an EV future.”

“We listened to our customer’s feedback and have fast tracked the arrival of our long range ZS EV with a larger 72kw battery pack and 440km of range to Australia. This provides more peace of mind in terms of minimising range anxiety and matches our pursuit of driving electric vehicles further.”

Long distance?
*snorts in derision at the Mao’s Garage ZS
That thing is merely short to medium distance by Australian driving distance standards.
If this tech toy could manage at least double its current WLTP distance, then it could honestly be called a ‘long distance model’. Right now though, calling it a ‘long distance model’, is outright lying to connedsumers.
