The system used on the ZS EV is an off the shelf Bosch L2 autonomous driving system that is presumably designed for ICE cars that don’t have regenerative braking. Assumption is that they’ll fit the same to the 5, but I guess nobody will know until they’re delivered - MG never seem very forthcoming with that kind of technical detail.Re Pilot and its impact on brakes/regen not sure why it would have that interaction but I haven't owned a ZS EV.
Tesla. They update their models every couple of months with tweaks and new features. If you order one now it is likely to have been updated by the time you receive it.I hope so Miles but with due respect as an employee is that the best spin you can put on it. Having a future market for mk1 is possible at the right (low) price. There would have to be a significate delta between the old, relatively new and new models and if you are at the bottom of that chain you will lose out. I hear you re other lower battery capacity models when new come along, but 3 models in potentially 18 months! The "slight" buoyancy of which you speak is unlilely in the next 18 months. So come on, which manufacturer has done 3 sequentially better models in such a short time ever and if they have are you really asking us to believe residuals will be ok? I hear the MG MD is on tour tell him how customers feel let down by the use of UK as a clearing house for old stock. Want to buy a car?
Hi Martin,Having watched the podcast now I have two questions .
The incoming stock has the 61.1kWh battery + the pilot suite hardware but it is only increased the kerb weight by 15kg .
Now my ZSEV has NMC 523 (141wh/kg)
The Chinese MG5 (Ei5 ) now uses LiFePO4 'LFP' ( like the Chinese made model 3 ) 180wh/kg
What chemistry Battery does the new 61.1kWh MG5 have?
,it's obviously a higher package density if it can pack an additional 10kWh in the same space with minimal weight added ?
2nd with adding of the MG pilot will it mean no KERS on ACC , like the ZSEV .
