Under the programme, MG’s all-electric SUV is available in 12-, 24-, 18-, 30- or 36-month subscription options. The ZS EV is currently available for subscription in Mumbai, Pune, Delhi-NCR and Bengaulru, though more cities will be added soon.

As a part of the tie-up, MG Motor India will leverage Zoomcar’s end-to-end technology solution for its MG Subscribe vehicle subscription platform. Orix, as its vehicle deployment partner and one of largest shared mobility platform in the country, will make the ZS EV available for subscription.
