MG Hector, MG Comet EV, MG Gloster, MG Astor

While it is expected for automakers to increase prices across their range at the beginning of each new year, as seen with the likes of Maruti, Tata, and Hyundai among others, MG India has taken a different approach. The British-born car brand recently slashed prices across the range, including those of its EVs, by more than a lakh. Let’s look at how the revised prices of its models compare to their respective rivals.

Why The Price Cut?

MG was the eighth best-selling car brand in India in 2023, but its total sales tally was a long way from that of the seventh best-selling carmaker. For 2024, it seems MG has a focus on increasing its overall sales volume by adjusting its prices to be even more competitive.
