India-bound MG eZS SUV Officially Unveiled in China
MG eZS was recently revealed at the 2018 Guangzhou Motor Show in China, clearly showing the stance of second MG product for India. The brand will launch one exclusive SUV in India with 45 dealers in the first stage and bring this EV to the country later in 2019. The car looks identical in most aspects to the conventional fuel model but comes finished in a new Blue shade and different 5-spoke alloy wheels. The charging port is hidden under the front grille for a neat presentation. On the inside, the electric SUV is equipped with a panoramic sunroof, bigger infotainment screen, and reprogrammed MID.

The car offers 0-50 kph in 3.1 seconds and produces close to 150 hp of maximum power. MG Motor is expected to bring the eZS in India through the CKD route, assembling the parts and even battery components here for cost-effective production. The battery cells are to be sourced from China. The car looks like a straight competition to Jeep Compass and Hyundai Tucson with its conventional motor while electric power makes it unique among this segment.
The premium interior finish with a perfectly flowing center console and the flat dashboard is purely mesmerizing. MG Motor is planning to bring back the charm that it had within the Indian fans through their vintage variants.
