It was reported by The Sun that MG, or Morris Garages, is set to make history next year by launching their very first electric car. Not only have they managed to create an affordable zero-emissions car but they’ve also pipped motor giants Ford and Vauxhall to the post.
As we all become conscientious of the impact high emissions are having on our air quality. MG might have just hit the nail on the head with their release date as consumers consider their electric car options.
The car is priced under £20k making it second only to the Renault Zoe Supermini which is under the £20k price mark.
MG boss Matthew Cheyne said: “The ZS is the start of a new era. We’ve already dropped diesel and we will launch the fully-electric ZSe next year.
“The speed of development is phenomenal. The tech is already in some Roewe products in China.”

Our diesel survey conducted this year highlighted a clear drop in interest when it came to purchasing diesel cars. Before emission concerns were raised in 2016 about the quality levels of the air, 34.6% of respondents said they would be ‘very likely’ to purchase a diesel car. After concerns were raised the figure dropped by almost 10% (9.52%).
The introduction of relatively affordable electric cars could mean that there's a good chance that these cars in conjunction with the government’s £875m investment into this emission health crisis. And not forgetting the £300m investment into ‘clean buses’, that the air levels could return to safer, healthier levels.
