MG ZS EV Charging guide 2020-2021 NZ

Charging options for the 2021 MG ZS electric vehicle. 
From Factory the MG comes with a Type 2 8A charger. This can take around 30 hours to provide a full charge from 0 to 100%.


We have two options for charging faster than the charger than comes with the MG. 
The 16A T2 charger with the Blue Cee plug. Great if you have a 16A socket. If you don’t have one get a quote from your local electrician to have one installed. The other faster option is the 32A Wall mounted charger
