Thoughts On The MG ZS EV Launch Date In India

After MG launches the ZS EV, we are expecting that the crowd will be drawn towards the new SUV as it did to the Hector, especially the top-spec ‘Exclusive' variant which comes with all the bells and whistles and many of them are first-in-segment features as well. Once launched, the MG ZS EV will lock horns with its only rival, the Hyundai Kona EV in India.
