MG Cloud EV & Yep Plus To Launch In Next 1 Year

MG Motor India is preparing to launch two more electric vehicles in the Indian market in the next 1 year. The company is currently selling the Comet as an entry-level electric vehicle and is priced under Rs 10 lakh. The other mode is the ZS EV, which is priced above Rs 20 lakh. MG aims to introduce two new EVs, which will cost somewhere between Rs 10 lakh and Rs 20 lakh. It is expected that MG could launch the re-badged versions of the Wuling Cloud EV and the Baojun Yep Plus in India; however, the company is yet to make an official announcement on the same.

As a reminder, SAIC Motor and the JSW Group have recently entered into a strategic joint venture. The JV plans to launch multiple electric and ICE vehicles under the MG Motor nameplate in India. The new MG Comet EV and the Yep Plus SUV are likely to be priced under Rs 15 lakhs. The new models will be based on the E260 EV platform.

MG Cloud EV

Expected to be launched before the end of this year, the new MG electric MPV will be based on the Wuling Cloud MPV on sale in Indonesia. It measures 4295mm in length, 1,850mm in width and 1,652mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 2700mm. This MPV will target both family and fleet operators. This electric MPV comes fitted with a 50.6kWh lithium-ion battery pack and a front-axle mounted permanent magnet synchronous electric motor that is rated at 134bhp and 240Nm. It is claimed to offer a range of up to 505km in a single charge. 

The Indonesian-spec model is fitted with several safety features including traction control, multiple airbags, blind spot monitoring, electric parking brake, brake assist, VSM, front & rear parking sensors, TPMs, hill start assist control, reverse camera and others. It also comes with an advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) with features like Lane Departure Warning System, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Monitoring, etc. 

MG Yep Plus

MG Motor India has already registered the design patents for the rugged Yep mini electric SUV. However, it is expected that the company will launch the 5-door version of the electric SUV - called the Yep Plus. The electric SUV will be launched by the end of this financial year, by March 2025. It measures 4000mm in length, 1760mm in width and 1726mm in height, and has a wheelbase of 2,560mm. The length and the wheelbase are increased by 600mm and 450mm, respectively, which allows Baojun to create more space inside the cabin. 

The company is yet to reveal the battery specifications; however, it comes with a 102bhp, rear-axle mounted electric motor. It is claimed to offer a top speed of 150kmph. The Baojun Yep Plus delivers a range of up to 401km in a single charge.
