Upcoming MG Electric SUV for India

MG Motors India is preparing to introduce a new electric vehicle to the Indian market. At present, there are two electric cars on offer; the Comet EV, and ZS EV. Although the name of the third model is yet to be confirmed, the company hints at its imminent arrival.

Additionally, this upcoming EV will mark the brand's first release following its partnership with SAIC Motor and JSW Group. SAIC Motor, MG Motor’s parent company, and JSW Group, led by Sajjan Jindal, are key players in this collaboration.

Upcoming MG Electric SUV: Based on Comet EV Platform

While there is no official confirmation yet, many are expecting MG to bring the Baojun Yep Plus to India. This 5-door electric SUV is based on the Comet EV platform and was recently launched internationally. Chances are that this SUV could potentially be rebranded as an MG vehicle for the Indian market.

Upcoming MG Electric SUV: Battery Details

If Baojun Yep Plus is introduced as a new MG EV for India, it is likely to use the same battery pack. The global-specific model uses a 28 kWh battery pack that can help the vehicle to travel up to 431 kms on a single full charge.

In addition, the SUV uses an electric motor mounted on the rear axle. This can generate a maximum power output of 68 bhp with 140 Nm of peak torque. Its top speed stands at 150 kmph. With these specifications, the Baojun Yep Plus promises both power and efficiency for users, making it a compelling option in the electric vehicle segment.

Expected Launch Date and Pricing

The brand is likely to launch its new EV in India around the festive season later this year, likely towards the end of 2024. While an exact date is yet to be confirmed by the company, it is expected to be announced once the new MG electric car's name is finalized.

The upcoming EV is seen as a strategic move to strengthen MG's presence in the market, with the manufacturer considering both luxury SUV and the affordable segment. Following this, the EV could target the mid-range category, offering a compelling option to a broader range of customers.
