MG (Morris Garages) Motor announced its entry in India with the launch of Hector, India’s first internet car with 50+ connected features. As India’s first 48V hybrid SUV, the MG Hector comes with 19 exclusive features that make it the new benchmark in its segment.
With internet inside, the next-gen i-SMART technology in the Hector promises to deliver safe, connected and fun experiences with the biggest HD touchscreen in its segment at 10.4 inches. The Hector will also be the first car with a sophisticated 48-volt mild-hybrid architecture in its segment. With this, MG Motor becomes the first mainstream carmaker in India to bring 48V technology to the mass market segment.
The 48V mild hybrid technology is the latest global environmentally friendly engine technology that enables reduction in petrol engine emissions. A 48-volt lithium ion battery helps store energy and provide extra torque assistance of up to 20 Nm when required, resulting in a smoother drive.
“The MG Hector, as India’s first internet car, has been built with a high level of localisation and comes power-packed with features, inside-out. As MG’s first offering in India, the Hector demonstrates our commitment to provide the best cars to Indian customers, that they love and appreciate,” said Rajeev Chaba, President & Managing Director, MG Motor India.
Equipped with MG’s signature design cues including the famous star-rider grille, the MG Hector heralds a new era for the much-revered octagonal badge in India. Its character lines are defined by geometric shapes, horizontal flow and symmetry. Various sections of the Hector’s interiors are inspired by modern dance forms.
Designed and developed for Indian customers, the Hector has been built to withstand extreme road conditions and has been tested for over 1 million kms in India before entering production at the company’s plant in Halol, Gujarat, earlier this month.
