MG (Morris Garages) recently unveiled its global pure electric SUV – the MG eZS. MG Motors confirmed that the new pure-electric SUV will be launched in India in December 2019 and subsequently be launched in some other markets like the UK, Germany, Australia, Thailand & Middle East coinciding with the Indian launch.
It will also be the second product in India after the Hector SUV, scheduled to go on sale in India sometime in June-2019. The MG Hector will come with several industry-first features housed in a 10.4” Head Unit. The Hector’s touch screen is designed with a vertical interface that allows the driver to control the entire car system with just a touch or voice command and comes pre-loaded with entertainment content. The iSMART Next Gen featured in the Hector comes with an industry first embedded M2M with Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPV6) ready for 5G.
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.
“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.
