Many customers are now shifting from petrol and diesel vehicles to EVs. They are exchanging their liquid fuel MG cars for a new EV. Some customers are getting an unbelievable resale value ranging between 80% to 100% on their old ICE vehicles. These resale valuations are apparently in line with what MG claimed when they launched the brand and the Hector in India. The British carmaker were confident that their SUVs will hold their value much better than any other rival brand’s cars. MG have shared the details of some of the exchanges that customers made and got an exciting value on their car.

Rise in EV sales in India

Sales of EVs are seeing a sharp increase and MG’s presence in this space is allowing them to meet the demand with their long-range ZS electric SUV. According to MG, they’re getting an average of about 700 bookings for the ZS EV per month.

People now tend to prefer EVs as they have less running costs. We have seen fuel prices rising to their forever highs last year. This less running cost attracts customers looking for an economical way of transportation. EVs are also refined as they do not have the noise and vibration of an engine.
