The much anticipated MG Hector is all set to be launched in the Indian market this month. The Hector premium SUV is the first product by MG in the country and recently, another vehicle by the brand has been spotted testing on the Indian roads. Called the eZS SUV, the second vehicle by MG is likely to be launched in the country by the end of 2019. Basically the electric version of the ZS SUV sold by MG globally, the eZS SUV was the first vehicle showcased by MG at the 2018 Guangzhou Motor Show.
In terms of looks, the eZS looks exactly the same as the ZS SUV. Showcasing the profile of more of an urban SUV and less of a typical true-blue SUV, the electric version of the ZS additionally gets a five-spoke alloy, a charging port at the front, eZS badging and an exclusive blue paint option.
In terms of features, the Ezs SUV will come loaded with advanced and premium features such as an advanced touch screen infotainment system and a large panoramic sunroof. The iSmart Next-Gen technology which is basically MG’s connectivity suite has also been confirmed by the automaker. All these features will also be on offer with the upcoming MG Hector.
Though the powertrain option for the eZS SUV has not been confirmed for the Indian market, the Chinese version of the SUV comes powered by a 150 hp electric motor. The engine is capable of doing 0-50 kmph in just 3.1 seconds. The SUV has a total range of 335 km in a single charge as confirmed by the NEDC (New European Driving Cycle). We’ll have to wait till MG announces the confirmed engine option for the eZS in India.
Apart from India, MG also has plans to launch the electric ZS SUV in other countries such as Australia, South-east Asia, UK, Germany, etc. According to the reports, the eZS will be produced at the Halol plant of MG in the country and is likely to get a subsidy from the Indian government under the FAME – II scheme.
