MG Motor is working on a two-door electric vehicle, which will reportedly be launched in global markets as well as in India. As per reports, the two-door EV will be called MG E230 and will be priced below Rs 10 lakh (ex-showroom). The MG E230 two-door EV will hit showrooms in early 2023, said reports.
This will be the brand’s second electric model in the country as it recently introduced the updated MG ZS EV with improved design, more features and longer range.
2023 MG E230 EV specs and features (expected)
The MG E230 electric car will be developed based on the SAIC-GM-Wuling’s Global Small Electric Vehicle (GSEV) platform that’s known for its compact size and ease of usage. This same architecture has also been also used on vehicles like the Baojun E100, E200, E300 and E300 Plus, as well as the Wuling Hongguang Mini EV in the Chinese market.
It supports many smart features including advanced driver assistance system (ADAS), Internet of vehicle (IOV), automatic parking, voice commands and more. In addition, the GSEV batteries are IP68 rated that makes them waterproof. The batteries get boosted with Smart Battery Management system.
The upcoming MG small electric car will be customised to meet Indian regulations and market requirements. It will likely be offered with a 20kWh battery pack that will deliver a range close to 150km on a single charge. The E230 might also come with the more powerful 54bhp electric motor.
The electric car is said to have safety features such as dual airbags, ABS with EBD and rear parking sensors.
However, the company has not made any official announcements about the MG E230 electric car’s features yet. Apart from the the E230, MG Motor India is also considering an electric hatchback for the Indian market.
