Speaking about the brand's presence at this year's Auto Expo 2020, Rajeev Chaba, President & MD, MG Motor India, said, "MG Motor India is committed to accelerating the adoption of eco-friendly, next-generation mobility solutions over the long term in India. To achieve this goal, we aim to establish our technology leadership and further consolidate our position in the Indian automotive space. Our presence at this year's Auto Expo with a focus on future technologies for India is a testimony to this commitment. All MG products at the Expo operate at the intersection of our core focus on innovation, customer experience and sustainability-led development."
Based on the image shared by the company, among the upcoming cars and concept models, we will also see the SAIC's Roewe Vision-i autonomous concept, which was first showcased at 2019 Shanghai Auto Show. The Vision-i concept previews cars of the 5G era and is positioned as an amalgamation of SUV and MPV, creating a new SPV category, a "Smart Proactive Vehicle" - an intelligent, active, and interactive car.
Currently, the company is gearing up for the launch of its first electric vehicle for the Indian market, the MG ZS EV. Slated to be launched on January 27, the new ZS EV will also be the company second model in India, after the MG Hector, which has already created a niche for itself. Like the latter, the ZS EV too will come with internet and connected car technology, and it will be available in two variants Excite and Exclusive. The ZS EV is equipped with a 44.5 kWh IP6 certified battery pack that powers a synchronous motor that puts out 141 bhp and 353 Nm of peak torque. The battery can offer a maximum range of about 340 km on a single charge.
