  • Subsidies make MG’s newest EV offer...

The new MG ZS EV and MG EP have won positive feedback after their price was adjusted as part of the government’s EV incentive campaign, the manufacturer and distributor of MG cars in Thailand said on Thursday.

Pongsak Lertruedeewattanavong, vice president of MG Sales (Thailand), said the price adjustment in line with the government’s promotion has resulted in a surge of interest from customers.

“Just one week after the price was officially announced at the 43rd Bangkok International Motor Show, MG has seen 3,000 units being booked,” he said.

“According to our operational plan, we will start the delivery of both EV models to customers from May onwards. However, a huge amount of bookings could also mean customers who book now are likely to receive the cars in the last quarter of this year.”

Thanking Thai customers for their trust in MG and the government for implementing the incentive campaign, he said, MG was ready to help Thailand move towards becoming a low-carbon society.

"The company will also continue to bring Thailand’s automotive industry to the international level,” he added.
