Is the MG ZS a good EV? A PCO driver's review



Written by Paul


About me:


Before I start the review, I think I should give you some info about me and my ride-hailing lifestyle!

My PCO shifts include Thursday Night, Friday Night, and Saturday Night. (Night shift may mean different times for different drivers) My night shift is 7 pm to 2 am

I generally cover the East London area, from Shoreditch to Hackney to Canary Wharf.


PCO driver pro tip:

Are you doing the Friday/Saturday night shift, and all of a sudden you have an urge to use the W/C? Being on the road for long periods means we need long breaks. Fortunately, during the day there's no problem when trying to find a local restaurant to use their toilet.

However, this is not so simple if you are doing the night shift as many restaurants close their bathrooms (even the 24/7 restaurants). But not all!


My tip: be sure to know where your local accessible overnight toilets are for those much-needed breaks.


My summary of the MG ZS:


The MG ZS is an excellent wallet-friendly car. Great gadgets are included that you don't get even on more expensive vehicles. These gadgets include 360 cameras, an emergency braking system, lane assistance, and much much more!

The MG ZS also has a great drive, I dare say it drives better than the famous Kia Niro! However, it does fall behind in boot space compared to its competitors. One thing I did notice is that the ZS is quite a slow-charging vehicle even when using a fast charge option. However, once charged, the battery will stay charged for a considerable number of miles.


Pros: Smooth drive, great looking car, useful gadgets


Cons: Interior systems like heated seats must be controlled via the infotainment screen


MG ZS interesting fact:


The MG ZS has quirky warning lights on the wing mirrors that notify you of approaching cars by lighting up. This is incredibly useful when switching lanes, especially in poor weather conditions. It works a treat!


Extra bonus of driving an EV:


I have received many more jobs now that I drive Uber green.


I also receive compliments on the experience for customers due to the amazing sun roof that the ZS provides.


My rating:


Practicality: 7/10


Comfort: 8/10


Value for money: 8/10


Range: 7/10


Overall: 8/10
