The EV is powered by a 29kW motor that has an output of 38.8hp and a peak torque of 110Nm. The motor runs on a 24kWh Lithium-ion battery pack. E200, according to NEDC, can cover 210 kms on a single charge and reach a top speed of 100 km/hr.
MG E200 | Interior and Exterior
When it comes to looks, MG E200 has been designed very well. The looks are pretty optimistic. It has got LED headlamps, alloy wheels and much more at the exterior. The interior is even more impressive. Here is the list of few features inside the E200:

It also has a remote interactive system which shows the information on the charging, parking navigation, power supply and vehicle inspection.
MG E200 | Safety Features
Although being a 2-seat car, the EV comes loaded with safety features such as Antilock Braking System (ABS), Electric Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and so on.
