Supplied by Mackie Motors in Brechin, the compact SUV will be put to use on journeys in and around the village and neighbouring Dundee area, and was chosen for its affordability and low running costs.

David Bayne, owner of Tayport Taxis, said: “Adding an MG ZS EV to our taxi fleet is the first step in our transition to operating a zero-emissions fleet. The car is one of the best-priced electric vehicles on the road and its spacious, well-designed interior and comfortable ride is sure to make it a popular vehicle among our passengers. Offering customers the very best service is key to our success and the ability to ensure that they will reach their destination safely and quickly is vital. The satellite navigation and MG Pilot safety systems fitted as standard in the ZS EV allow us to deliver this with consistency.”

Kevin Mackie, managing director of Mackie Motors, added that the company had seen strong demand for the MG ZS EV since its launch last summer.

He added: “Sales have been driven by the growing consumer and business appetite for electric vehicles and the real affordability of ZS EV when compared to other plug-in cars on the market is exceptional.”
