MG Motor India has announced its strategic five-year business roadmap in India, which includes plans to build a second assembly facility in the state of Gujarat.

The UK carmaker’s India business plans to invest over Rs5bn ($60.8m) and have a total of 20,000 both indirect and direct employees by 2028, reported TimesNow.

With the new plant, the company intends to increase its total production output from the present 120,000 vehicles to 300,000 in the country.

The brand plans to focus on the localisation of the latest technology, as well as raise its Indian shareholding over the coming two to four years.

It intends to introduce four to five new cars in the Indian market, with most of its new models being electric vehicles (EV), reported MoneyControl.

The company aims to achieve most of its sales in the country via EVs by 2028.
