Buyers can book their ZS EV in three paint schemes – Ferris white, Currant red and Copenhagen blue. The ZS EV only has the Hyundai Kona Electric as its main rival which is the only other EV on sale currently in that segment.

Sadly the all electric SUV is not available in Goa at the moment and won’t either be coming to our shores atleast not immediately. However it could eventually make its way here in the future.
