MG’s newest electric vehicle, the Cloud, is gearing up for its debut in India. Positioned between the Comet and ZS EV, this 4.3-meter-long car marks MG’s latest addition to its electric lineup. Ahead of its imminent launch, an extensively camouflaged prototype of the Cloud EV was observed undergoing testing on Indian roads recently.

The MG Cloud EV has a look similar to an MPV but only seats five people in two rows, making it more like a big hatchback. It’s designed with a clean, simple style, including smooth surfaces, hidden door handles, and LED lights that run across the front and back. The car has big windows all around the back, with extra glass near the sides, and the front and back windows are titled sharply.

Priced at an expected rate below Rs 20 lakh, the MG Cloud EV aims to attract a wide range of customers seeking affordability and eco-friendliness. Sold under the ‘Wuling’ and ‘Baojun’ brands in Indonesia and China, the MG Cloud EV is set to debut in India with its own unique charm.

MG Cloud measures about 4.3 metres long and boasts a wheelbase of 2,700mm, drawing inspiration from MPVs. The car features sleek LED light bars across its width, smooth flush door handles, and headlights integrated into the bumper.

Internationally, the MG Cloud EV offers two battery choices: a 37.9kWh option with a range of 360km and a 50.6kWh version that extends up to 460km. Its electric motor, located at the front axle, delivers 134bhp. However, it's still uncertain which battery variant will be available in India.
