Bushey Heath Garage has handed over the MG electric vehicle (EV) to a UK customer.
The first-ever customer delivery of the fast-selling zero emissions SUV took place at the franchised site in Bushey, Hertfordshire, where Richard Jackson received the keys to his new Exclusive trim vehicle.
MG has received 2,000 orders in just two months for its debut electric vehicle – making it the fastest selling in its history under Chinese owner SAIC.
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 and marketing at 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”.
The MG ZS EV claims to offer a WLTP-accredited range of 163 miles, the high-tech MG Pilot driver assistance suite, room for five and a full-sized boot.
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 outstanding overall price from just £23,495.
ZS EV Excite benefits from a new £3,000 MG Grant which, when paired with the government grant, results in an overall price from just £21,995.
