But GWM’s entry in India, could make things complicated for MG Motors. MG Motors, the iconic British company which is now owned by Chinese SAIC, has had a sweet run in India so far, with MG Hector becoming a bestseller in the market. It had also recently launched its electric SUV MG ZS EV.

In 2016, GWM had put its first step into the Indian market by setting up a R&D centre in Bengaluru. Since then, several rumours had been doing the rounds about its supposed entry in the Indian SUV market.
And now, after four years, the auto giant is reportedly looking for land in Gujarat for a manufacturing facility while it also debuts in the auto show.
