Design-wise, the EV for India looks identical to the international-spec car. It gets the similar-looking sleeker LED headlamps and tail-lights, seen on the MG Astor. There are some EV-specific touches here too, with the front faux grille being replaced by a new, clean bumper, along with 17-inch alloy wheels. The charging port, which was housed behind the MG logo in the previous model, has now been moved to the side of the front bumper.
