MG Motor plans to introduce Mini EV outside of China

SAIC’s MG Motor brand is set to launch an electric microcar for global markets based on the platform of the SAIC-GM-Wuling joint venture’s Mini EV, which is extremely popular in China. The first foreign market is to be in India.

According to the reports, the MG E230 will have a battery pack with 20 kWh energy content for a range of 150 kilometres and will be offered from early 2023. The exact dimensions of the vehicle are not yet known, but it is said to be based on SAIC-GM-Wuling’s Global Small Electric Vehicle (GSEV) platform. The Nano EV on this platform is only 2.50 metres long, while the well-known Mini EV is 2.92 metres long.

One of the first markets is to be India. The portal CarToQ mentions a possible price range of one million rupees, which is equivalent to about 11,900 euros. MG has so far sold the ZS EV as an electric car in India, which is priced in the country from the equivalent of just under 26,000 euros.

Besides the Wuling subcompact, the platform is also used for cars of the Baojun brand, which are offered as E100, E200, E300 and E300 Plus. An MG E230 could therefore be priced slightly above the level of the Baojun E200, if the naming structure is the same for both brands.

How would this compare to a Fiat 500e? That's just under 3000lbs/1350kgs but still seats 4.
