At present, MG offers the ZS EV in India, which competes with the Hyundai Kona. The car uses an electric motor that has an output of 141 BHP and 353 Nm. It is powered by a 44.5 kWh lithium-ion battery that is said to have a maximum range of up to 419 km.

The lithium-ion battery can be charged to 100% of its capacity in 6-8 hours using an AC charger and to 80% in 50 minutes using a 50 kW DC fast charger. The carmaker has sold around 3,000 units of the ZS EV in India.

With a new sub-Rs. 20 lakh EV, MG could take on the popular Tata Nexon EV in the Indian market.

This should happen sooner than later. The upcoming Astor should be launch with ICE as well as EV powertrain.
This will push Tata, Mahindra and Hyundai to improve their offerings and launch competitive new products quickly.

My only wish is they increase the range a bit more or atleast offer with same range as ZS EV.

ZS's range is optimum for long inter city/intra city rides too. Something of a 500+ km range will be a huge feat and may shift the momentum in favour of EVs.

The Astor is nothing but rebadged ZS with non electric powertrain. The electric Astor already exists as the ZS EV in Indian market.

There hasnít been any news on what electric models MG would bring in future. The only other electric car MG presently has in UK lineup is the MG5 estate, which for all intents and purposes of being a wagon, wonít make it to our shores.

It would either be a ground up EV or an electric version of crossovers positioned below ZS (like the MG3)

Or it could be some rebadged SAIC model just like the ZS and Hector, sold under MG brand.
