Is it true that MG batteries have 0% degradation? Auto Plus news in your smartphone Auto Plus news in your inbox

Up to a million kilometers?

In the world of electric cars, the mystery surrounding battery life continues to raise deep questions. MG, positioning itself as a key player at the forefront of innovation, recently lifted the curtain on intriguing details about the sustainability of its electric batteries, sparking a wave of enthusiasm throughout the automotive industry.
At the center of these concerns is the ongoing problem of batteries that are powering the electric revolution. In addition to the environmental impacts associated with the extraction of materials, battery life cycle remains a critical issue. While many manufacturers claim limited degradation, often less than 30% over a decade, MG goes above and beyond standards by emphasizing the exceptional longevity of its batteries, guaranteeing their performance up to a million kilometers!
Against the trend of outsourcing battery manufacturing, MG has established strategic alliances with giants such as SAIC and CATL. This successful collaboration, launched in 2017, gave rise to a factory dedicated to the production of high-end batteries, covering the entire process, from cell design to recycling.

what’s the secret

CATL batteries, which are proudly integrated into the MG models, are distinguished by their fast charging capacity, high energy density, and therefore durability. Rigorous testing of MG’s electric compact SUV, the ZS EV, has shown complete absence of degradation even after a run of 35,000 km and subjected to various loads, from ultra-fast to slow.
The test results speak for themselves: ZS EV battery maintains 100% capacity and all its components are in perfect condition. MG even goes so far as to claim that these batteries are designed to last 5,000 charge cycles, which equates to an impressive range of over a million kilometres. However, the question remains: will this lack of degradation be the same after 150,000 km, when the warranty expires? Finally, to answer the question posed in the title of the article, it is impossible for batteries to remain this intact for years.

The tests done by MG ran up to 35,000 km, how about the batteries after 50,000, 100,000 and 200,000 km? The answer must be provided by the car manufacturer.
