    what's the lowest % battery you've gone to on a trip ?

    Down to zero with the SOC indicator blinking then disappearing. Done specifically for a range test video for my EV YT Channel but was nerve racking 🔋🇦🇺👍

    Byd Atto 3

    Passenger Footwell Thingie

    Lol, MG don't waste any money of making things neat or covering them up. 🤣🤣🤣. I put some courtesy lights in the foot wells (video coming on that) and amazing what I found under there. 👍

    MG4 or Tesla Model 3

    Wow that's a good deal for Tesla M3. Here in Aust MG4 pricing just announced, around A$48k, and dealers have started taking orders. 2nd hand STANDARD range+ M3 are still around A$55k here so personally I would be going for M3 LR in your neck of the woods if it suits your needs. Plus the...

    Thinking of buying a MG ZS EV 2020/2021

    Has anyone tinted the sunroof?

    No, Tinting shop recommended against it an in fact wont do it due to risk of damage to the sunroof, apparently different glass make-up. Mention it in my video here:

    MG4 Dead !!

    Buy a 12 volt lithium jump starter for just these occasions when the 12 volt is dead.

    MG4 Dead !!

    Yes same as petrol car. EV needs to be 'in' to charge 12 volt.

    Sitting in car whilst charging

    Depends on the EV but generally lock the car, plug in, start charging. Unlock and jump into car, car often stops charging for 10-15 seconds but will restart, then do whatever you need to do. If using accessories heater etc, just make sure you have the car 'on' so you don't flatten the 12 volt...

    How to see kWh charge level?

    My Granny charger shows this info on the screen. These were the chargers MG supplied with the first ZS EV's to arrive into Australia.

    Dented pride!

    Global problem unfortunately! If unlikely enough to hit one and do damage just need to claim from the local council. 😀

    MG ZS EV Battery heating always on??

    Battery preheating is used to increase charge rate at DC rapid chargers therefore reducing the time required to charge. It does reduce range so if you don't need to use it don't.
