Premium models such as the Astor, Hector, Hector Plus, and Gloster SUVs fuel MG Motor India’s sales. The Comet EV was introduced as the brand’s most affordable product, with a starting price of Rs. 7.98 lakh (ex-showroom). The corporation is likely to be aggressive in the electric mobility area in the coming years, with up to seven new launches planned over the next few years, some of which will be electric. In addition, the manufacturer has been aggressively engaging with auxiliary partners to establish charging infrastructure to enable EVs.

In 2023, MG’s ownership in India changed dramatically, with the JSW Group acquiring a 35% interest through a joint venture with its Chinese parent SAIC. The new funding should help speed growth and expansion ambitions, such as the introduction of new products and the establishment of a new manufacturing factory in Gujarat, in addition to the brand’s existing facility in the same region. More announcements from MG Motor India are expected later this year.
