MG Motor UK will supply a fleet of up to 100 MG ZS EVs to the NHS for free, in order to support the effort to overcome the Coronavirus.
The cars will be supplied to NHS agencies across the UK via MG’s nationwide dealer network, for up to six months.
Daniel Gregorious, head of sales & marketing at MG Motor UK, said “As a proud British brand, MG is more than just a car manufacturer. Together with our dealer network, we want to do our bit to help the country to come through this uncertain time. By providing 100 electric cars to our NHS heroes, we hope that we will help to keep healthcare moving so that as many people as possible can receive the support they need. It’s also our way of saying thank you to those selfless people who work so hard to keep us all safe”.
The first six cars have already been supplied to Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Trust by MG dealer Chorley Group.
Based on the ZS, the ZS EV features a 44.5kWh lithium-ion battery pack which powers an electric motor with 143PS and 353Nm of torque.
It can cover up to 163-miles between charges and has a five-star Euro NCAP rating and a seven-year warranty.
