MG Motors entered the Indian market last year and it currently offers two SUVs. There is a highly successful Hector SUV and a recently launched MG ZS EV, which is the first electric vehicle from the brand. The next launch from the brand will be a Multi-Purpose Vehicle that will take on the likes of Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and even Toyota Innova Crysta.
The new information on NDTV Auto shows the upcoming vehicle for the Indian market. The car came in a shipping container and the pictures were taken when the vehicle was coming out of the cargo. The all-new MPV is expected to be showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo. It should be noted that the MPV will be launched in the market in the coming times. Kia Motors, which also entered the Indian market last year will launch the all-new Carnival MPV in the Indian market.
This very same vehicle is also sold in the Chinese market. In China, it gets the name Maxus G10. There are various configurations available with the car including 7, 9 and 10 seating options. The MPV spotted in the pictures is likely to be a 7-seater. However, there might be more choices available in the market.
The car spotted had an MG Motor logo on it instead of the Maxus. This will be a rebadged product for the Indian market and it is likely to be positioned between the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga and the Toyota Innova Crysta. The new car will also target the all-new Mahindra Marazzo. MG Motors is likely to base the launch of customer feedback at the 2020 Auto Expo. MG Motors may even showcase the car at different showrooms across India before getting it launched in the market.
The all-new MPV will be launched in the Indian market by the end of 2020 or at the start of 2021. The Indian market may get the 6-seater and 7-seater variants of the car and a higher capacity variant if needed. It should be noted that MG is also planning to launch the all-new Hector in the 6-seater and 7-seater configurations. However, this MPV will get a more affordable price tag.
The MPV will get the same 2.0-litre diesel engine in the Indian market that also powers the MG Hector. In the Chinese market, the MPV gets powered by both petrol and diesel engine options. The car will be priced aggressively as the other two MG Motor products in India. We will also get to see a long list of features on the vehicle. MG Motors has remained aggressive in its strategy for the Indian market and they will continue to be bullish. The manufacturer will also launch the Maxus D90 SUV that will take on the likes of the Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour in the Indian market.
