MG (Morris Garages) on Wednesday unveiled the much awaited electric SUV – the MG eZS. To be introduced in India by December this year, MG eZS will be one of the first global pure electric SUVs in the country.
The MG eZS EV is the perfect car for people who want to go electric considering the environment and desire the latest modern vehicle with connected mobility features, said the company in a statement.
The MG eZS will be launched in India by the end of this year and subsequently be launched in some other markets like the UK, Germany, Australia, Thailand & Middle East coinciding with the Indian launch.
“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,” said Rajeev Chaba, President & Managing Director, MG Motor India.
“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,” added Chaba.
With a country-wide network of 120 sales and service outlets across India, MG aims to ensure a seamless ownership experience for its Indian customers.
In addition, the carmaker will take appropriate measures to educate the Indian audiences around EV driving range anxiety and charging infrastructure.
The eZS will also house the carmaker’s iSMART Next-Gen, which will debut in India starting with the MG Hector SUV which will go on sale in June this year.
