New Delhi. MG Motor had earlier talked about launching an affordable electric car for India, but recently the company has confirmed that it will be the MG Air EV. It will be launched next year in 2023. This will be the company’s cheapest electric car. It will be designed according to the urban commute.
MG’s new upcoming electric car MG Air EV will be similar to the Wuling Air EV, which MG’s subsidiary now sells in Indonesia. However, when launched in the country, it will be substantially changed for the Indian market and when launched here, it will retain the boxy design with futuristic specifications.

The Wooling Air EV two-door electric car measures less than three meters in length and has a wheelbase of 2,010 mm, making it smaller than the Maruti Suzuki Alto. The MG Air EV will be the carmaker’s entry-level cheapest car in India early next year. However, despite being small, the MG Air EV can get spacious interiors. The MG Air EV will sport a large touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone connectivity, a digital instrument cluster and soft-touch material can be used on the higher variants.

Range, Battery and Performance
The MG Air EV is likely to get a 25 kWh battery pack, which is capable of delivering a range of around 150km on a full charge. It will have a single electric motor, which will come with a front wheel drive set. This motor will be able to generate power of 35 to 40 Bhp, which makes the electric car perfect for use in the city. Its battery pack can be fully charged in less than 5 hours using a 6.6 kW AC charger, while MG could also offer fast charging capabilities. However, more information will be available in the coming days.
