The carmaker had crossed a whopping 2,800 pre-launch bookings in 27 days. Deliveries will start on Jan 27.

Interestingly, the interest shown by Indians for the MG ZS is much higher than the total number of electric cars sold in India during April-December 2019. As per industry estimates 1,554 battery electric cars comprising Mahindra e-Verito, Tata Tigor EV, Hyundai Kona EV and Mahindra e20 were sold in India during the nine month period.

“The ZS EV is a globally-successful product that operates at the intersection of an EV’s sustainability, an SUV’s practicality, and a sports car’s performance,” Rajeev Chaba, President and MD at MG Motor India, said.

 

It comes with best-in-class features and tech capabilities at a compelling price point, he boasted. “We are confident that this unprecedented value proposition will incentivise more consumers across India to go electric,” Chaba said.
