MG Motor Begins Car Subscription Program With Myles

A partnership that was announced in 2019 has finally taken shape as the country gets ready to adjust to the new normal amid the Coronavirus pandemic. Myles, a self-driven car rental company has added the MG Hector as one of the cars it offers to customers on subscription basis. In the era of social distancing this may well turn out a practical way of owning personal set of wheels especially for those who do not want to invest a huge sum of money in buying a new car.


The car is available for subscription both for individuals as well as corporates.

MG Motor India Begins Production Of Hector Plus SUV In India


MG Motor India has commenced the commercial production of the Hector Plus in India. We already knew that the company will manufacture the Hector Plus at its Halol plant, and we exclusively told you that the SUV will be launched in India in July this year. MG Motor India showcased the Hector Plus at the Auto Expo 2020 and it was just last week that we gave you a glimpse of the new colour that it will offered in. In fact the 'Starry Sky Blue' colour that the Hector Plus was spotted in, is exclusive to the model and it was then that we gave you details about the launch as well. The car was to be launched earlier, but has been delayed due to the ongoing covid-19 crisis.

The MG Hector Plus will also be a connected car as it will come with Over the Air (OTA) technology, allowing customers to update software/firmware, feature themes, and infotainment content seamlessly. The Hector Plus will be the company's third SUV in the country and will sit above the 5-seater Hector. While the 5-seater is priced between ₹ 12.74 lakh to ₹ 17.73 lakh, we expect the Hector Plus to cost a little more than that.

MG and IIMPACT drive girl child education with e-learning centers during the New Normal

MG and IIMPACT drive girl child education with e-learning centers during....jpeg

Gurugram, July 21, 2020:
In a bid to prepare underprivileged girls for the ‘New Normal’, MG Motor India has now launched an e-learning initiative called ‘IIMPACT- ech Studio: e-Siksha, Ek Nayi Disha’ with IIMPACT – an NGO for Girl Child Education. As part of the initiative, the automaker will deploy e-learning solutions across 15 IIMPACT Learning Centres (LCs) in 5 cities.

MG and IIMPACT have an active partnership for the education of socially and economically marginalized girls since the automaker’s launch in India. So far, MG has supported IIMPACT’s 50 learning centres across the country. Both MG and IIMPACT are now converting 15 of these centers into e-learning centers beginning with 5 cities. The automaker is simultaneously driving the tech enablement of IMPACT HQ’s Training & Professional Development Department. It will empower an additional 1800+ IIMPACT LCs across 11 states through a cascading approach. The primary focus of the initiative is on the quality content dissemination for students and the teachers. It will further supplement the program with the professional development of the teachers, thereby aptly addressing the education needs of the rural girls.

A share from each MG HECTOR and MG HECTOR PLUS sold directly contributes to this initiative/girl child education. MG had previously conducted a similar program and supported the education of more than 60,000 girls in India.

Speaking on the initiative, Rajeev Chaba, President & Managing Director, MG Motor India, said, “The New Normal has created an enormous need gap within education. Today, students all across the country are learning via the ‘study from home’ model. However, it is not possible for social and economically marginalized students due to the lack of digital devices at their disposal. At MG, we strongly believe in giving back to the society and creating a level-playing field for everyone. So, with IIMPACT, our vision is to address this need gap to the very extent possible. We perhaps wish to give our out-of-school girls something more than education. With this initiative, we intend to give them wings.”

Shubhangi Sharma, Executive Director, IIMPACT, said “The partnership is aimed at imparting quality education to girls between the ages of 6 years to 14 years. It will support the education needs of out-of-school, irregular, or dropped-out girls dwelling within these regions. MG Motor will use technology as an enabler to develop content, create and disseminate Teaching Learning Materials (TLMs), and impart training that would directly impact the quality of education provided at these centres. This will be accompanied by tech interventions at a central level to enhance the child’s attendance, participation, and retention.”

A cascading approach will be followed in the program which will train 200 mentor teachers via a blended-training methodology. They will then train 1,800 teachers, thereby benefitting a corresponding number of students.

MG Motor India considers ‘community’, ‘diversity’, ‘innovation’, and ‘environment’ as important stakeholders in its business and has undertaken many initiatives under MG SEWA and Sustainability.

About MG SEWA

MG SEWA is an umbrella platform to serve immediate communities with whom the company interacts, especially in Vadodara, Halol, and Gurgaon. Under the Program, the carmaker started supporting the education of girl students in 2019, and more than 60,000 girls have benefitted from it so far. Other initiatives under MG SEWA include skilling unemployed women to make masks, educating 100 teachers and more than 4 Lakh children on road safety in Gurgaon, and sanitising 4,000 police cars. Furthermore, MG has also facilitated enhanced production of ventilators by providing technological and infrastructure support to an MSME player, Max Ventilator, at Vadodara. The production has been ramped up to 4 times in the last 2 months. Recently, the carmaker provided more than 100 Hector cars to frontline workers and donated Hector Ambulances as part of the same.The company has been at the forefront to ensure that migrant labourers received food during the nationwide lockdown.

MG Motor India records its highest-ever sales in March 2021; monthly sales cross 5500 units
.
Hector and ZS EV clock highest-ever monthly sales
Gurugram, April 1, 2021
: With a growing demand for its range of vehicles, MG Motor India has registered the highest-ever retail sales figure during March 2021 at 5,528 units, a growth of 264% against 1,518 units sold in the same month last year. The British legacy automaker also clocked the highest-ever sales for its Hector and ZS EV during March 2021. With the continued momentum, the carmaker now has a waiting period of up to 2-3 months for most of the models.

Commenting on the sales performance, Mr. Rakesh Sidana Director – Sales, MG Motor India, said, “The highest monthly sales achieved in March 2021 are very encouraging with momentum continuing for our product lines. While the Hector received 6,000+ bookings during the month, the Gloster has continued its advance in the premium SUV segment. MG ZS EV’s increased traction is also being witnessed across various quarters including luxury buyers looking for a personal driving experience.”

MG is currently offering the ZS EV with Myles and Zoomcar with Orix as a part of a monthly subscription plan as well, which is seeing a good response.

“However, we are likely to see a disruption in the supply chain due to shortage of semiconductor chips globally as well as the the second wave of Covid. We may observe a few NPDs (no production days) in April 2021 as a preventive measure. We assure our customers that we will provide transparent communication to them throughout,” Sidana added.

Driven by its vision of CASE (Connected, Autonomous, Shared, and Electric) mobility, the cutting-edge automaker has augmented the across-the-board ‘experiences’ within the automobile segment today. It has introduced several ‘firsts’ in India including India’s first Internet car – MG Hector, the first Pure Electric Internet SUV – MG ZS EV, and the first Autonomous (Level 1) Premium SUV – MG Gloster.
