Day three of the Auto Expo sees MG diversifying its hold on the Indian market
Gloster will be the brand’s first full size SUV in India. Name pays homage to British jet engine prototype
G10 will be brand’s first luxury MPV. Will get features like configurable seating options and panoramic sunroof
MG Motor India today unveiled its Gloster luxury SUV and G10 luxury MPV which are headed to the Indian market later this year, as MG claims. After the Hector and ZS EV (both mid-size SUVs), the brand’s decision to go for the Gloster full size SUV and G10 MPV shows its intentions to capitalise on more sectors of the Indian market.
The name Gloster pays homage to MG’s British genes, as the name comes from one of Britain’s early jet-engine aircraft prototypes and, as the brand claims, stands for being bold, sturdy, reliable and versatile.
Moving on to the G10, the brand’s first full sized luxury MPV, it is sold globally in markets such as Australia, New Zealand, Middle-East, South American and ASEAN countries, and comes with various seating configurations, panoramic sunroof, touch-free smart sensing rear door and smart automatic sliding doors. And as is the MG characteristic so far, both the Gloster and G10 will be, as the brand puts it, fully connected, as they will be equipped with the latest updates to the brand’s iSmart technology
Speaking on the occasion, Rajeev Chaba, president and managing director, MG Motor India, said, “Auto Expo is the perfect platform for us to unveil our products under consideration for India and highlight our technology prowess across connected, electric and autonomous. The launch of Gloster and G10 will mark our entry in the luxury SUV and MPV segments respectively. The Gloster will be a benchmark for luxury SUVs in India with its launch later this year and G10 will also follow soon.”
