In our cover story for June 2022 issue of Autocar India, we look into MG’s plans for an affordable city EV in India. We have the first drives of the new Toyota Glanza and the all-new range extender from Tata’s stable – the Nexon EV Max. We also take a closer look at BMW’s third EV for India, the i4; plus, we have a feature on buying the right tyre. The issue also covers our incredible road trip across Israel in two Mercs.
