One of the major problems that almost all the metropolitan cities, developed or developing countries face is the increasing pollution. India also has this problem and we have one of the most polluted cities of the world. In order to reduce pollution from burning fossil fuels like petrol and diesel more and more manufacturer are moving towards electric vehicles with ample support from government. In last one year we had seen launch of three new electric vehicles in India. They were Hyundai Kona, MG eZS and Tata Nexon EV. Here we have a video about MG’s eZS that shows whether the air purifier inside the car actually works or not.
The video has been uploaded by Bjørn Nyland on their youtube channel. The video starts at night where the anchor can be see holding a torch to show the dust particles in the air. The anchor has an air quality measuring monitor that shows the level of PM 2.5 in the air. At night the levels were quite normal but when he uses the same monitor in the morning. The monitor shoots all the way upto 152 and meanwhile, the anchor had kept all the windows and sunroof of the the eZS open so that it gets exposed to the pollution outside.
The anchor then picks up the monitor and gets in the car and places the air quality measuring monitor on the dashboard. The eZS comes with a feature where it has an inbuilt air purifier to keep the air inside the car clean. The anchor closes all the windows and sunroof and switches on the air-condition with maximum full speed. The monitor shows the cabin getting cleaner and after a point it was simply stuck. Then the youtube switches on the re-circulation mode which cuts down the air intake from outside the car and starts circulating the air inside the cabin.
As soon as this is done the air quality starts improving and it comes down till 10 which is great in comparison to the 152 that the outside world has. This experiment was done by the youtube just to check whether the air purifier in the new eZS works or not and he was pretty impressed with the results. MG ZS EV was launched in the Indian market last year and has a claimed range of 340 kms on single full charge. Prices for the same now starts at Rs 20.88 lakh and go upto Rs 23.58 lakh, ex-showroom.
