MG Motor India to Launch Cloud EV and MG Gloster Facelift by the End of 2024

Cloud EV globally offers two battery options: 37.9kWh with 360km range and 50.6kWh with 460km range

MG Motor India plans to expand its vehicle lineup in India. According to reports, the company will launch the new Gloster facelift and introduce the all-new MG Cloud EV in the second half of 2024.

MG hasn’t launched any new vehicles to the Indian market since April 2023 (Comet). These new models will mark the first of many lined up following a new investment from JSW. Furthermore, both models have undergone testing on multiple occasions.

Currently, the MG India lineup includes Hector, Gloster, Astor, ZS EV, and Comet EV.

MG Cloud EV

SAIC sells the Cloud EV under the Wuling brand in Indonesia and as the Baojun Yunduo in China. However, for the Indian market, the company will rebrand the model as an MG, just like the Comet EV, which is a Wuling Air under a different badge.

The MG Cloud EV will measure 4300 mm in length and have a 2,700 mm wheelbase. Notably, it will have a large hatchback’s practicality and MPV’s versatility.

In terms of interior, the MG Cloud EV will feature a minimalistic dashboard design. It will have a large floating touchscreen and a digital instrument cluster. Additionally, the car will provide front seat backrests capable of reclining to a “sofa mode” with a 135-degree backseat recline angle.

The Cloud EV comes with two battery options globally: a 37.9kWh pack with a 360km range and a 50.6kWh pack with a 460km range. Powering it is a front-axle-mounted permanent magnet synchronous motor which produces 134 bhp.

MG Gloster Revamped

The Gloster will take the design inspiration from the Maxus D90, which belongs to MG’s parent brand, SAIC. It will receive a fresh design both inside and out, while its mechanical aspects may remain unchanged.

The Gloster facelift will feature a brand-new front design highlighted by a massive hexagonal grille with red accents. It will incorporate a fresh split headlamp arrangement, distinct wheel arches, and more rugged cladding.

On the inside, the Gloster facelift may feature a modified dashboard with a larger touchscreen. However, the vehicle will likely retain the 2.0-litre diesel engine with 4×2 and 4×4 drive setups.

The 2-litre turbo engine diesel option will generate 161 hp and 375 Nm of torque. Meanwhile, the twin-turbo unit will deliver 215 hp and 480 Nm of torque.

Wrapping Up

MG didn’t reveal any information regarding the features and launch date of either model. However, as per multiple reports, the company may launch the products in the second half of 2024.

In India, the Cloud EV might have a price tag of under Rs 20 lakh due to significant levels of localization. The MG Cloud EV will directly compete with the Tata Nexon EV and the Mahindra XUV400.

On the other hand, the Gloster facelift might have a price range of Rs 38.80 lakh to Rs 43.87 lakh (ex-showroom).
