The first-ever customer delivery of a fully electric MG has taken place at Bushey Heath Garage, Bushey, Hertfordshire, where Richard Jackson received the keys to his new ZS EV Exclusive in Dynamic Red. The milestone handover also marks the start of customer deliveries for ZS EV across MG’s 100-strong dealer network.
After the ZS EV was launched to the media in July 2,000 units were sold in the first 60 days of order books opening.
Jonathan O’Donoghue, Managing Director at Bushey Heath Garage, said: “We are thrilled to be able to hand the keys to Mr Jackson’s new ZS EV. We pride ourselves on offering the very best customer service and our upgraded on-site charging facilities means that Mr Jackson can utilise our local infrastructure when he requires it. We’re glad to be part of history delivering the first-ever all-electric MG car and judging by the customer interest already, there are many more who will be making the switch to electric with MG soon.”
Daniel Gregorious, Head of Sales & Marketing, MG Motor UK, said: “Everyone at MG would firstly like to welcome Mr Jackson to the MG family and also 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”.
With the MG grant of £3,500 for the range-topping ZS EV Exclusive on top of the government’s own £3,500 plug-in car grant, customers benefit from an overall price from £23,495. The ZS EV Excite benefits from a new £3,000 MG Grant which, when paired with the government grant, results in an overall price from £21,995.
The MG ZS EV is available now at MG dealers across the country. Orders taken from 18th September 2019 until the 3,000th retail order will also qualify for the MG grant. The MG grant offer is open exclusively to UK residents.
