Gurugram, May 10, 2023: MG Motor India, an iconic British automobile brand with a rich 99-year heritage, today announced its strategic 5-year business roadmap to Indianize the business operations for sustainable growth and meaningful impact on the society. The key initiatives that would constitute this are localization and bringing in the latest technology and indigenising it as well; increasing Indian shareholding over the next 2-4 years; enhancing local sourcing and manufacturing across its operations by 2028 through an extensive series of programs including exploring cell manufacturing and clean hydrogen-cell technology through owned or third-party facilities; expanding production capacity with a second plant in Gujarat; introducing a broader range of electric vehicles (EVs); and unveiling new product offerings.

To support the widespread adoption of electric vehicles, MG Motor India will strengthen local manufacturing of EV components and establish a battery assembly unit in Gujarat.

Emphasizing its commitment and contribution to India’s mission to become a major manufacturing hub, MG Motor India will invest in advanced clean technologies, including hydrogen fuel cells and cell manufacturing, as well as bolster local manufacturing of EV parts through JVs or third-party manufacturing.
