MG Motor India will increase the prices of the Hector, ZS EV and Gloster by up to 3 per cent from January 1, 2021. According to the automobile manufacturer, the price hike across the product range would be in the wake of the miscellaneous cost increase.
At present, MG Motor India retails three models — MG Hector, MG ZS EV and MG Gloster.
The automobile manufacturer’s largest-selling vehicle, the MG Hector, is available in the price range of Rs 12.74 lakh to Rs 17.73 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Hector gets three powertrain options — 1.5-litre turbo-petrol (143PS and 250Nm) with 6-speed MT and 6-speed DCT, 1.5-litre turbo-petrol hybrid (143PS and 250Nm) with 6-speed MT and 2.0-litre turbo-diesel (170PS and 350Nm) with 6-speed MT.
The MG ZS EV has priced between Rs 20.88 lakh and Rs 23.58 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The electric vehicle uses a 3-phase permanent magnet synchronous motor that produces 142.76PS of maximum power and 353Nm of peak torque. The motor is paired with a 44.5kWh lithium-ion battery.
The MG Gloster was launched in India in October 2020. The SUV’s price ranges from Rs 29.98 lakh to Rs 35.58 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Gloster has a couple of powertrain options — 2.0-litre turbo-diesel (163PS and 375Nm) with an 8-speed AT and 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel (218PS and 480Nm) with an 8-speed AT. The variants with 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel engine get on-demand 4WD as well.
