The new electric crossover from MG arrives in Spain with a modern design, an interesting technological section, and a range that reaches 400 km. As we have seen for a few months now, MG has started a great offensive in our country as part of its return to Europe. A plan that already includes two models such as the MG EHS and the ZS that can be requested with an interesting discount plan that seeks to advance the aid of the Moves III Plan. Now, to continue increasing and consolidating that presence in our country, the resurrected Morris Garage introduces a third model whose reservation process is already underway.
