As part of its centennial year celebrations, MG Motor India revealed revised prices for its 2024 lineup of car models. The Comet EV, the Hector, the Astor, and the Gloster now have updated prices, while a new base trim for the ZS EV has been introduced at Rs 18.89 lakh for the domestic market. Priced at Rs 17.50 lakh for the diesel variant and Rs 14.94 lakh for the petrol version, the Hector SUV is the manufacturer's maiden product in the country. Furthermore, buyers who wish to purchase the company's more affordable electric vehicle, the Comet EV, will have to shell out Rs 6.99 lakh for the base variant. Meanwhile, the starting prices for the Astor and the flagship Gloster SUV currently stand at Rs 9.98 lakh and Rs 37.49 lakh, respectively. The British carmaker claims that several factors have contributed to the changes in the original price list. Notably, the firm highlights its reputation as a tech-driven automaker by being among the first to deliver advanced driver assistance systems, or ADAS, to India.

Gaurav Gupta, Deputy Managing Director, MG Motor India said, "At MG, we are committed to keeping the customer at the heart of our operations. In continuation with our centenary celebrations, we're excited to introduce 2024 as the Year of Fast Forward, to ensure a rewarding ownership experience for all. This has been made possible due to increased localisation, long-term freight contracts, streamlined logistics, supply chain improvement, and long-term key commodities cost rationalisation."

The Comet has seen a notable price reduction of Rs 1.40 lakh. As a result, the cost of the electric vehicle now ranges between Rs 6.99 lakh (base-spec Pace Variant) and Rs 8.58 lakh (top-spec Plus Variant). The mid-spec Play variant retails for Rs 7.88 lakh. Prices are ex-showroom. The vehicle is powered by a 17.3kWh battery that requires seven hours to fully charge.

At the base pricing of the Hector and Hector Plus SUVs, buyers can save as much as Rs 80,000. Now, the starting prices for the Hector and the Hector Plus are Rs 14.95 lakh and Rs 17.75 lakh, respectively, following the most recent price reduction. There are six variant options for the Hector: Style, Shine, Smart, Smart Pro, Sharp Pro, and Savvy Pro. In contrast, there are six and seven-seater versions of the Hector Plus available. Both SUVs have two powertrain choices: a 1.5-litre petrol unit and a 2.0-litre diesel mill. The automatic transmission can only be had with the petrol engine, however, both mills come with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard.

The Gloster comes in three trim levels - Sharp, Savvy, and Blackstorm. Speaking of the SUV's Blackstorm variant, the most recent update has brought about a price drop of Rs 1.34 lakh and Rs 87,000 for the turbo and twin-turbo versions, respectively. The model currently starts at an ex-showroom price of Rs 37.49 lakh. Mechanically, the Gloster is equipped with a 2.0-litre diesel or a 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel engine. The twin-turbo diesel powertrain generates 215bhp and 480Nm, while the diesel mill produces 161bhp and 375Nm. MG is developing a facelifted version of the Gloster in India and is expected to be available in India by late 2024, however, the carmaker has not divulged any specifics. 

New Executive Trim for ZS EV

Since its release, the ZS EV has captured the attention of Indian buyers. To improve its attractiveness and availability, MG has introduced a new, entry-level Executive trim of their flagship electric vehicle. It is competitively priced at Rs 18.98 lakh (ex-showroom) to attract potential consumers. The Excite, the previous base model, was undercut by almost Rs 1 lakh thanks to this astute pricing.


The car is now available in four different variants: Executive, Excite, Exclusive, and Exclusive Pro. There have been no mechanical changes made by the automaker. The 50.3kWh battery pack that powers the motor with 173bhp and 280Nm is still included with the electric car. The battery pack may be charged from 0 per cent to 80 per cent in 60 minutes with a 50kW DC fast charger. Furthermore, ARAI certification states that an electric vehicle may go up to 461-kilometre on a single charge.
