Perhaps the most interesting unveiling at the MG Motor stall at Auto Expo 2023 was the Euniq 7 fuel-cell MPV. MG has showcased a slew of electrified vehicles at the Auto Expo, including plug-in hybrids, BEVs and this FCEV, in order to gauge public interest and evaluate their launch.

MG Euniq 7: exterior design
In terms of design, the Euniq 7 has a typical MPV silhouette with a short and stubby front end and a van-like body. Up front, it has a tall nose and gets a large, chrome-trimmed front grille that’s flanked by slim headlights with triangular airdams lower down. The glasshouse is large and it features sliding rear doors and dual-tone alloys. At the rear, the Euniq 7’s LED tail-lights are connected by a chrome strip. The car showcased was finished in a dual-tone blue and white paint scheme. Overseas, the Euniq 7 FCEV is sold under SAIC’s Maxus brand.
MG Euniq 7: powertrain
While MG didn’t reveal any specifications, in international markets, the Euniq 7 has a peak output of 201hp from its hydrogen fuel cell powertrain. The Euniq 7 gets a 6.4kg hydrogen cylinder, which can be refuelled in a matter of minutes and MG says the MPV has a range of up to 605km. And as is the case with every FCEV, the Euniq 7 only emits water.
MG Euniq 7: interior, features
Inside, the Euniq 7 features a seven-seater layout, in a 2+2+3 configuration with individual captain seats in the middle row. It gets a layered dashboard that appears quite premium, with a free-standing touchscreen taking centre stage. Features include a large panoramic sunroof, a digital instrument cluster and ADAS functions.
MG currently has revealed no plans to launch the Euniq 7 FCEV MPV in India and has brought down the model here as a demonstrator of its powertrain technologies.
