For all those who do not have an idea about NCAP, it means New Car Assessment Programme. Getting a 5-star rating in the latest Euro NCAP is indeed a big deal. Guess who is the new baby in the town to achieve this feat? It is none other than the MG ZS EV. The grand total score of the electric SUV is 34.5 out of 38 points. This was the score in case of the adult occupant protection. While in case of child occupant protection, the score was 41.7 out of 49 points. Is not that a remarkable performance?
The score in terms of safety assist system was 9.2 out of 13 while the rating by vulnerable road users 64%. According to the news, the tested model had Autonomous Emergency Braking or AEB technology. It also had seatbelt reminders, speed assist technologies, as well as lane-keep assist.
The launching time is speculated to be around January 2020. The MG ZS EV will compete against Hyundai Kona in India. The SUV will be available in five major cities – Mumbai, Delhi-NCR, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Ahmedabad. The SUV will offer liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery along with a 44.5kWh power.
