MG ZS EV gets Level 2 ADAS tech that works on three levels of sensitivity: low, medium and high, and three levels of warning
MG Motor India has today announced the launch of the updated variant of the ZS EV in the domestic market for an introductory price of Rs. 27.89 lakh as it has been upgraded to offer Level 2 ADAS with a host of new features. The British manufacturer says the set of new features will enhance the overall driving experience by providing assistance, control and comfort in various driving conditions.
The MG ZS EV’s Level 2 ADAS works on three levels of sensitivity: low, medium and high, and three levels of warning: haptic, audio and visual to enrich the ownership experience and safety. The Traffic Jam Assist (TJA) enables hassle-free driving even in congested traffic while the Forward Collision Warning (FCW) system enhances safety by notifying the driver of potential collisions and applying automatic deceleration if required.
The Speed Assist System (SAS) alerts and prevents you the driver from overspeeding. Meanwhile, Lane Functions are there to improve safety further by preventing unintentional deviation from the driving lane and the Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) reduces driver fatigue by maintaining proper distance from the vehicle in front and adjusting to the speeds accordingly.
Speaking of the new launch, Gaurav Gupta Deputy Managing Director, MG Motor India, said: “The globally successful MG ZS EV brings with it safety and convenience with the introduction of Autonomous Level 2 (ADAS) and underscores MG’s commitment to electric mobility and a sustainable future. By offering a viable, attractive ownership experience, and an accessible electric SUV to Indian consumers, MG Motor India aims to accelerate the transition towards a zero-emission future and help boost the EV ecosystem in India.”
