- The pure EV EZS will be locally built at the carmaker’s Halol facility.
- Confirmed to be introduced in December 2019.
MG (Morris Garages) has confirmed that their global pure EV, the EZS, will be manufactured in India at its facility in Halol, Gujarat. The carmaker announced on World Environment Day that the EV will be introduced in December this year.
The carmaker is already testing a few vehicles in extreme climatic conditions across India. With the EZS, MG is targeting car buyers who want to go electric but also need the space and practicality of a compact SUV. Globally, the EZS is powered by a 110kW electric powertrain which good enough for 150bhp and 350Nm. The motors are fed by a 45.6kWh battery pack, supposedly with a range of around 350 kilometres. The SUV also gets a fast charging feature. On the inside, the EZS should also come with iSMART connected features from the Hector. What’s more, the India-spec EZS will come loaded with an eight-inch infotainment system, panoramic sunroof, dual-zone climate control, LED headlamps and all the other bells and whistles expected from a car in its segment.
Talking about the segment, the EZS will be the only other electric SUV in India alongside the upcoming Hyundai Kona EV. Both the EVs are likely to be slotted in the Rs 20-30 lakh price bracket.
Rajeev Chaba, president and managing director, MG Motor India, talking about the EZS, said, “The MG EZS, as one of the first locally produced global EVs, will mark a new chapter in environment-friendly mobility in India. We are delighted to be one of the first carmakers to enter this space in India. The aim to bring accessible electric motoring to the customers in India upon its introduction by the end of this year”.
