MG ZS EV Exclusive
Well almost a week in we're getting use to running an EV now and really enjoying the MG ZS. The performance is OK, not staggeringly fast however it's OK for pulling out of junctions etc. Range is absolutely fine, even on the longest commute we do we're still coming home with 50% so no range anxiety at all. Today I got a chance to try MG Pilot, first impressions are that I can't believe it actually works given the cost of the car! My previous car was a Volvo V90 which had pilot assist which was excellent. MG Pilot is not as good however it does work and managed to steer the car most of the way down the A47 today.............not bad. Does anyone know if it's improved with the comfort 2 update?
Talking of the update we're still waiting on that. Our dealer in Norwich has promised to do this for free however at the moment they have told us they're not rolling it out pending testing. I really wish they'd just roll it out and skip the testing because the bongs may cause me to stab the speaker out with a screwdriver before long!!! I've had it blast it's horn at me twice now for no real reason which is very annoying as we live down a very quiet private lane so it gets noticed and the constant bongs are ridiculous. It just smacks of a manufacturer that skipped the usability testing completely.
The infotainment is also a bit broken. I'm not too worried about the built in sat nav as I never intended to use that preferring Android Auto however sadly Android Auto is very hit and miss. Again hoping this is improved in the update.
The only other weak point on the car is the handling. To be fair given the reviews our there I was expecting this to be far worse however it really isn't. That said you can feel the shocks struggling to stop the car from bouncing and hopping over bumps.
Overall really enjoying the new car, looking forward to doing a decent journey in it now, maybe a run to Somerset next month, lockdown permitting
