The move comes ahead of the launch of MG EZS, which is expected to hit the roads later this year. Rajeev Chaba, president & MD, MG Motor India, said the move was in line with its goal “to provide accessible EVs to India customers and create an EV ecosystem in India”.

“The upcoming launch of MG eZs is aligned with the government’s long-term objective to have more electric vehicles on the road in the next few years,” he added. “We have already witnessed an uptake in the adoption of electric vehicles in the last year. This collaboration will further bolster this growth,” added Sanjay Aggarwal, MD, Fortum India.
