The new patent images show a number of changes that will be made to the exteriors of the upcoming ZS EV facelift

The MG ZS EV is currently one of the most practical electric cars in the country and challenges the rivals like the Nexon EV and the Kona electric in the market. The MG Astor on the other hand offers a similar package for the buyers but is offered with ICE powertrain options for the buyers.

Both the cars are soon expected to get facelift updates and the patent images of these upcoming SUVs recently surfaced online revealing important details and updates that the brand will offer with the facelift models.

To start with, the patent images of the facelift iterations of both these SUVs reveal a lot of changes at the front that make the ZS EV look a lot more sharper and aggressive than before. For those wondering, it gets prominent LED lights, a bold front bumper, and a closed new grille with a small air dam. Likewise, subtle updates will be made to the side profile of the SUV while small yet significant changes are also expected at the rear.

Reports also suggest that the new ZS EV facelift and the Astor facelift might get interiors inspired by the MG 4 EV which boasts a sleek and minimalist design with an absence of buttons and knobs in the centre.
