The MG4 is already on sale internationally and recently received a five-star safety rating in the latest round of Euro NCAP crash test results. It’s based on MG’s parent company SAIC’s Modular Scalable Platform (MSP) and is about the same size as the ZS EV sold in India. The model measures 4,287 mm in length and has a wheelbase of 2,705 mm. Styling cues have been borrowed from the Cyberster roadster concept.

MG Motor India says that it will be showcasing new “energy vehicles and sustainable driving solutions" at the 2023 Auto Expo. Apart from the MG4, the brand is expected to showcase the MG5, MG6 as well as the Hector facelift. The latter will be launched in India tomorrow and will come with a comprehensively updated styling, more features and inclusion of ADAS. Rumours suggest that the MG Air EV announced for India last year could not be showcased at the expo and will be unveiled at a later date instead.

It's not clear if there are plans to bring the MG4 EV to India soon. The brand would want to gauge market reactions at the expo to take that call. The MG4 will rival the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and the Kia EV6 upon its arrival but could be significantly cheaper.
