MG Motor, which is taking aim at India’s green mobility market with its upcoming electric SUV MG ZS EV, has said it is looking to go “beyond tokenism” with its foray into the segment. “We are aiming to develop the entire ecosystem around electric cars in the country,” MG Motor India President and Managing Director Rajeev Chaba told PTI here.
“We are tying up with partners for charging infrastructure, for battery lifecycle management, we are exploring a subscription model for buyers…We are going beyond tokenism,” he asserted. The MG ZS EV, to be unveiled next month, will go head to head with Hyundai Kona, launched in July this year as the country’s first fully electric SUV.
