MG Motor India on Wednesday announced that it will be providing 100 of its Hector SUVs in India to doctors, medical staff, police and local government officials for community service across the country, till the end of May 2020.
This goodwill step is initiated in order to provide hassle-free and convenient travel options to our frontline warriors who are up on their toes to fight against the spread of COVID-19 disease in the country.
The automaker says that the vehicles will be supplied via its dealerships across the country and that the recently introduced ‘MG Disinfect and Deliver’ process will be followed before the cars hit the roads. The 100 Hector SUVs will be provided free-of-cost to support the national effort to overcome COVID-19.
All the cars would be provided along with fuel and drivers and will be used to ensure that the key stakeholders in this crisis, such as doctors, medical staff, police and local government authorities can travel safely.
The carmaker has already donated ventilators and distributed Health and Hygiene Kits, PPE kits, surgical masks, gloves, sanitizers, sanitizer sprayers, Food and Ration Kits to combat the coronavirus threat.
In the UK and Ireland, MG has been playing a similar role and apart from supplying ZS EV cars for transportation needs of NHS workers, has also donated 30,000 face masks to hospitals.
MG is one of several car makers who have stepped up to provide assistance of varying kinds in India as well as in many other countries.
