After much speculation, MG has confirmed that the MG Air electric car will be launched in India, in early 2023. The MG Air EV will be unveiled in India on January 5, 2023, and will also be showcased at the upcoming Indian Auto Expo.
When launched, the MG Air EV will be the smallest electric car on sale in India. The MG Air EV is essentially a rebadged version of the Wuling Air EV currently on sale in Indonesia, however, MG will locally source the battery pack from Tata AutoComp to keep the price of the vehicle competitive.The MG Air is expected to come with a 25kWh battery pack and a 38 bhp electric motor that will drive the front wheels while offering a range of ~150 km. The MG Air will be a premium offering despite measuring under 3 metres in length and will be priced more than the Tata Tiago EV, which is currently the most affordable electric car in the country.
