The eMG 6 will be loaded with equipment like LED headlamps, keyless entry with push-button start/stop, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather seats with heating, and electric adjustment for the front seats and rain-sensing wipers.

MG Motor will start its innings in India with the launch of a mid-size SUV in 2019. The SUV will be priced competitively, thanks to heavy localization. Company sources have revealed that MG will initially focus on SUVs for the Indian market. There are no plans to sell the eMG 6 sedan in India and is here only as a tech demonstrater.
