SAIC Motor and JSW Group will create strategic synergies by bringing together resources in the field of automobiles and new technology. The joint venture will also undertake multiple new initiatives including augmenting local sourcing, improving charging infrastructure, expansion of production capacity, and introducing a broader range of vehicles with a focus on green mobility.
According to the agreement signed, JSW will hold 35 percent share in the Indian JV operations. SAIC will continue supporting the joint venture with advanced technology and products to deliver mobility solutions with a focus on the Indian consumer.
The joint venture is said to optimise SAIC Motor’s vast automotive experience and technical expertise to demonstrate MG’s spiritual cores – globalisation, digitalisation, rejuvenation, and young attitude. It will also leverage the large presence of JSW Group across B2B and B2C sectors of the Indian economy to augment local sourcing and establish a robust supply chain.
Together, SAIC and JSW Group will work towards creating a smart and sustainable automotive ecosystem in India by bolstering the development of NEVs (a four-wheeled EV that has a maximum speed greater than 32kph but not more than 40kph) and ICE vehicles with carbon neutrality, sustainability and green mobility at the centre of its shared vision.
