2021 is shaping up to be the year of the electric car. Interest in them is increasing rapidly, a trend underlined by ever more people signing on the dotted line to take delivery of a zero-emissions electric car. Even many seasoned car industry observers are surprised at how quickly people are embracing the electric car. Helping grow demand is the fact electric cars have never been more affordable: indeed, on the Motability Scheme, there are even more models that can be taken for zero advance payment.

New for 2021 is an added extra for pure electric cars they can showcase their environmentally= friendly credentials with a bespoke registration plate carrying a green stripe. In the future, this will help electric vehicle owners access zero-emission zones in cities and even benefit from any free parking initiatives reserved for electric car drivers.


MG is a famous British brand that’s been revived in recent years and refocused on offering an extensive range of pure electric cars. The MG ZS EV, a crossover SUV, is one of its most popular models, once again combining an EV drivetrain with a fashionable and rugged-looking body style.

Why is it so popular?

The sheer accessibility of the MG ZS EV is a key part of its popularity. The car is available for no Advance Payment, meaning it’s a barrier-free EV choice for those keen to make the switch. Excite grade has all the essential features as standard and the ZS EV is a particularly spacious small SUV front and rear. The 470-litre boot is a generous size, too.

The 45kWh battery gives a driving range of 163 miles, which extends further to 231 miles if you restrict usage to the city. It’s no slowcoach either, with 141hp giving plenty of oomph when you press hard on the accelerator. Even the rotary gear selector is noteworthy – it’s like one from a Jaguar luxury car.
