Before getting into the details of the MG ZS self-rental plan, let’s get to know Lithium Urban Technologies. Founded in 2015, this company is the largest fleet provider of electric vehicles as well as India’s first fleet business to entirely operate on zero-emission vehicles. Currently, the company owns around 1,000 EVs.
As per the report, Lithium Urban Technologies will plan to add 100 units of MG ZS EV to its current fleet. These added vehicles are deemed to be enough for cab services. In its plan, the MG ZS EV will be offered for both executive rentals and city commuting. For inner-city transport, the company is considering to use the MG ZS for routes like Mumbai-Pune and Delhi-Jaipur Agra.
Besides the newly-established partnership with MG Motor, Lithium Urban Technologies has mostly made use of EV models from Tata and Mahindra on its fleet. Previously, it is announced that the Bengaluru-based fleet company will get 400 units of Tigor Electrics along with 100 units of other upcoming EV models from Tata Motors like Tata Nexon EVs.

The MG ZS EV derives power from a 44.5 kWh battery pack which is claimed to get a range of 340 km per charge. The electric motor of the SUV can deliver a 143 PS of maximum power and 350 Nm of peak torque. Moreover, this electric power setting allows it to reach 100 kmph from idle in 8 seconds, according to MG’s announcement. With the 7.4 kW AC charger, the battery can be fully charged in 6-8 hours while the 50 kW DC charger can cut the charging time to one hour to fill 80%.
The EV is well-equipped with a long list of features including projector headlights, LED DRLs, LED taillights, 17-inch alloy wheels and electric parking brake and 6-way power-adjustable driver seat and multiple driving modes. Alongside, it also comes with 8-inch touchscreen infotainment and a panoramic sunroof.
