MG keeps up the momentum with Extender pickup

After creating a strong impact with the launch of the ZS EV priced at Bt1.19 million, MG is expanding its product line-up further - this time with a 1-ton pickup truck.

 

The MG Extender will be officially launched in August, according to distributor MG Sales (Thailand) Co Ltd.

 

It will come with a 2.0-litre diesel turbo engine and a large number of safety features.

 

The Extender will be the highlight at the MG booth at this year’s BIG Motor Sale to be held at the Bangkok Trade and Exhibition Center (Bitec) from August 16-25.

 

The Extender is based on the Maxus T60 sold in China (MG is owned by SAIC Motoes of China), which is powered by a 2.8-litre turbo diesel engine developing 147 horsepower and 360Nm.

 

The Thai model will be assembled at the new MG plant at the Hemaraj Eastern Seaboard Industrial Estate in Chon Buri, which is a joint venture between SAIC and Thailand’s CP Group.

Looks good but Chinese Junk,  especially at over a million baht.

over a million baht..........  where did this price come from ?  I was told the Single cab would be under 500,000 to under 900,000 for the top 4 door Auto....   The New V80 cost just over 900,000 - just over 1 million, fully kitted out 11 seater..    https://www.sanook.com/auto/69525/

Off topic a bit but I wasn't aware of the MG ZS Ev. Completely slipped under the radar.
For a price of 1.19 Million baht seems to be a good buy for an all electric vehicle while other hybrids or fully electric cars start at about 2 Million.
People are afraid of quality issues with Chinese cars but these days are gone. All manufacturers have joint ventures with established car makers and China is now the biggest car market and producer worldwide.

This is old technology. No different to what's on the market already. Energy from the sun is the future. They have missed out on a big opportunity here.

V80 probably good pick for converting it to an RV / camper

I disagree, hydrogen fuel cells are the future.

We can only hope so.

The problem with them current batteries is there is nowhere to recycle them or dismantle them, more waste, and no solutions

As we know Mercedes uses a Nissan platform, MG are doing similar by using a Chinese platform.
