The HS is priced from Bt919,000 to Bt1.119 million. However the first 1,000 customers get a special Bt34,000 cash discount or Bt34,000 worth of accessories. With the first option, prices are lowered to Bt885,000 to Bt1.085million.
MG earlier shocked the market by launching the electric vehicle ZS EV priced at only Bt1.19 million, said a Thursday release.
The new ZS model will reach over 100 MG dealers countrywide by September 28 and delivery will start in October, according to Pongsak Lertruedeewattanavong, vice president of MG Sales (Thailand) Co Ltd.
“We made our breakthrough in the Thai SUV market with the MG GS released three years ago and followed by the MG ZS. These two models have been positively welcomed by Thai customers and have successfully established the MG brand as a key player in the B-SUV and C-SUV segments,” he said.
“The MG ZS is considered as our pinnacle product in paving a way for a new vehicle segment in Thailand based on MG’s product specialty. This new segment has seen interest from Thai car owners since then. MG is certain that the HS announced today is going to be a new milestone of both our brand and SUV market of Thailand.”
The HS is powered by a 1.5-litre E85-compatible turbocharged engine developing 162hp and 250Nm, with 0-100km/h acceleration claimed at under 10 seconds.
It comes with the latest i-SMART infotainment system with voice recognition in the Thai language, along with a package of driver assistance systems, six airbags and a 360-degree view monitor.
