      MG won't survive in Bharat, as Tata and DRDO had already made commercial and passenger vehicles running on Hydrogen fuel cells, full charging within 5 minutes and travels for 500 kms, with output as water, and that too at very affordable cost than other foreign brands.

      Other brands better watch out. These Chinese car brands could one day dominate the Indian car market, just like the Chinese smartphone manufacturers who utterly dominate the whole smartphone scene in the country right now.

      This is nothing like that because Indian smartphone makers were not OEM they just buy phones from China and slap their brand name .This is totally different because they can't undercut our locally made cars because they manufacture it themselves not to mention import duties and on top of that Indian manufactures make cars for Indian road (not to brag but Indian automotive engineering expertise is much better than Chinese, Chinese designs are simply copycats) which have some of the worst road in undeveloped areas which chinese manufacturers are not used to i don't think they can withstand some of our roads that are filled with potholes so the fatigue will be high enough wear off its parts easily.

      The cars are actually not too bad but the reliability will be horrible.
      Chinese cars in Australia were banned because of asbestos in the dashboard.
      Don't buy Chinese cars. No Chinese cars in India!
