MG Motor India eyeing investment into India business

MG Motor India is all set to grow its share in India's growing passenger EV market with its latest entrant - MG Comet EV that is set to be introduced on April 26. The company is betting big on the Comet's unique proposition of being a micro-footprint car that offers a personal mobility solution in congested urban cities. The Comet, along with the flagship MG ZS EV, is likely to enable MG eye 30 percent sales from EVs in CY23. Rajeev Chaba, President and Managing Director, MG Motor India talks about how the company has been able to achieve up to 54 percent localisation in the Comet at its start of production that would be critical for it to aim for an aggressive price tag. Chaba also spoke about how MG Motor India is gearing to ramp up production at its plant in Halol, Gujarat, to target 3,000 Comets every month, and its talks with potential investors to ensure continuity of the MG India business.
