MG Motor has unveiled the all-new eZS electric SUV internationally before the launch in the Indian market later this year. The all-new electric SUV will become the first ever all-electric car from the British brand in the Indian market and will be the second launch by the brand after the Hector in India. It will be a global product and will be available in international markets like the UK, Australia, Germany and the Middle East.
Rajeev Chaba, President & MD, MG Motor India said,
With a modern design and advanced technology, the MG eZS will herald a new chapter in environment-friendly solutions in India. While the petrol version of the MG ZS had already become a popular choice globally, we are confident that its zero-emissions electric equivalent will bring accessible electric motoring to the customers in India upon its launch by the end of this year. We hope by the time we launch the vehicle; the government would have announced the much-needed subsidies and incentives for the EVs under the recently announced FAME II scheme so that the people are encouraged to by the environmentally friendly mobility solutions. More details about the specifications and features of the eZS will be announced at a later stage.
MG Motor has not commented on the technical specifications like the power of the upcoming eZS. The exact range of the electric car is also not known. However, according to the official statement, the car will offer around 250 km of range with a full charged battery. Such details are expected to be revealed by the brand close to the launch. However, it is known that the MG eZS will feature a similar connectivity feature as the MG Hector and will feature an eSIM. Similar over-the-air (OTA) will be available with the upcoming car too. The iSmart connectivity system offers built-in apps, Artificial Intelligence (AI), other smart features and voice assistance.
The MG eZS will be a mid-size SUV similar to the Creta. There are no direct competitors of the car in the Indian market but it will take on the Hyundai Kona EV when it is launched in the Indian market later this year. There are a lot of electric vehicles that have been planned for the Indian market in the coming times. Soon, Mahindra will launch the all-new XUV300 EV in the Indian market too. Even smaller, more affordable vehicles like Tata Tiago EV and Mahindra KUV100 EV will be launched in the India market in the coming times.
It should be noted that MG Motor may price the eZS quite competitively in the Indian market. The all-new car may can be manufactured in India at a later stage and is expected to carry a price tag of around Rs 10 lakh.
