MG Cloud EV, India launch details, range, expected specs, features.

The Cloud EV, positioned between the Comet and ZS EV in MG’s electric vehicle lineup, is set to make its mark in the Indian market. This upcoming offering is expected to be a 4.3-meter-long vehicle with a design that combines elements of a large hatchback and an MPV, providing a unique and versatile option for consumers.

Originally sold under the Wuling brand in Indonesia and as the Baojun Yunduo in China, the Cloud EV will undergo a rebranding as an MG for the Indian market. With local production planned, this electric vehicle is sure to make a splash upon its launch in the coming months. A recent sighting of a heavily camouflaged test mule on Indian roads has built anticipation for what the Cloud EV has in store for buyers.

The exterior design of the Cloud EV boasts a sleek and modern look, with flush door handles, clean surfacing, and eye-catching full-width LED light bars at the front and rear. The vehicle features a stepped front-end design with unique headlamp placement, along with a large glasshouse that wraps seamlessly around the rear. With its distinct design elements, the Cloud EV is sure to turn heads on the road.

Moving to the interior, the Cloud EV continues the theme of minimalism with a focus on spaciousness and technology. The cabin features minimal physical buttons, a large touchscreen infotainment system, and a digital instrument cluster. Unique features include a “sofa mode” with 135-degree backseat recline, integrated AC vents, and circular speakers on the door pads. Additionally, the Cloud EV offers an advanced driver assistance system with a 360-degree camera in international markets.

When it comes to power, the Cloud EV offers two battery pack options overseas – a 37.9kWh and a 50.6kWh, providing ranges of 360km and 460km, respectively. The vehicle is equipped with a front-axle mounted, permanent magnet synchronous motor that delivers 134hp. The specific battery pack version available in India is yet to be confirmed, but sources suggest that the Cloud EV could be priced under Rs 20 lakh, positioning it competitively in the EV market against rivals like the Tata Nexon EV and Mahindra XUV400.

With a focus on high levels of localization, including battery pack production, MG aims to offer an aggressively priced yet feature-packed electric vehicle with the Cloud EV. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting addition to MG’s electric vehicle lineup.
