MG Motors entered the Indian market officially earlier this year. Their only product, the MG Hector SUV is doing quite well in the market. In fact, the Hector is leading the segment by a good margin. After the success of MG Hector and the rising the popularity of the SUVs in India, MG Motors is now working to launch their next products in the market. For the first time ever, MG Motors will participate in the Auto Expo, which is scheduled to happen in February 2020 and the brand will showcase its next products.
The first vehicle that will be launched by the British manufacturer is the MG eZS. It will be the brand’s first-ever electric vehicle in India. The eZS will be revealed in India next month and MG is likely to reveal all the specifications of the India-bound eZS. However, the car will be launched officially and the price will be announced only next year. Before that, MG will start accepting the booking for the eZS officially. The all-new eZS will take on the likes of Hyundai Kona EV in the Indian market and will also go against the upcoming Tata Nexon EV. It is likely to delivery around 400 km on a single charge but lower-range variants are expected to be launched too.
Later, a new SUV that will be positioned just below the MG Hector in the market and will take on the likes of Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos directly. According to ICN, this will be the rebadged version of the Chinese SUV – Baojun RS-3, which was launched recently. It will get both petrol and diesel engine options.
A rebadged version of the MG Hector, which is currently a five-seater SUV received a 7-seater version in Chinese and many other international markets. The new car is expected to be launched in the Indian market in the coming months too. It will allow MG Hector to take the likes of Mahindra XUV500 and upcoming Tata Gravitas head-on. The 7-seater version of the MG Hector will look similar to the 5-seater version but there will be slight changes on the body that will set it apart from the MG Hector. It will carry the same engine options as the MG Hector and the feature list will be similar too.
MG Motors will also tap into the full-size SUV segment to take on the likes of Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour and Mahindra Alturas G4. To take on the heavy-weights, MG Motors will launch the all-new Maxus D90. It will be launched in AWD version too and will be powered by both petrol and diesel engine options.
