2019 MG eZS EV SUV spotted testing in India ahead of Q4 2019 launch
MG Motor India, after the success of MG Hector SUV, seems to be well on its way towards readying its next offering for India, the MG eZS electric SUV. The eZS will be a close rival to the recently launched Hyundai Kona Electric.
This spy image shows that the MG eZS for India will be very similar to the car offered elsewhere. The heavy camouflage aside, the car seems to carry the production-spec car's headlamps, bumps and sports the less blocky, more flowing look of the eZS. This is quite a departure from the upright, blocky look of the Hector.
The MG eZS EV is expected to come to market by the fourth quarter of 2019. The firm is choosing this niche model to further highlight its aim of being a technology leader in the automotive industry. The eZS is being brought in as a CBU wherein 250 units will be imported from Shanghai. MG claims that the eZS will be a global offering and will have a driving range of 350km in one single charge. The MG eZS could be powered by a 52.5kWh lithium-ion battery pack. A full charge could take eight hours from a wall charger.
MG Motor India has tied up with Finland-based clean energy major, Fortum to instal 50kW DC fast-charging EV stations, ahead of the eZS' debut. Under the partnership, Fortum will instal 50kW CCS/CHAdeMO DC public charging stations across MG's showrooms in five cities including Delhi NCR, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Ahmedabad by September this year to begin with.
