MG (Morris Garage) Motor India today launched the much-awaited MG Hector Plus at a starting price of Rs 13.48 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi). Hector Plus is India's first 6-seater internet SUV that comes with a panoramic sunroof. It will be constructed at the state-of-the-art manufacturing facility at Halol near Vadodara in Gujarat. This new member of the MG Hector family has been given superb and comfortable captain seats in the middle row in 6-seater Hector Plus. The 6-seater SUV gives a very appealing look from the inside because of its brand new dual-tone smoked Seppia brown interior. In addition, the chit-chat feature on the brand new stylish headlamps, new chrome-studded front grill, and i-smart next Gen interface is increasing its attractiveness. It also comes with other attractive features, including the latest smart swipe, front and rear bumper, new rear taillight design and revamped skid plates.

As part of its philosophy of enabling the exciting experience forever, the carmaker has set a starting price for a month until August 13. The brand new Hector Plus can be booked through MG dealership, its website www.mgmotor.co.in, or my MG mobile app. Based on the trim level, the price will then increase to Rs 50,000. Like MG Hector, MG Motor India has also assured customers of the resale value of Hector Plus. The carmaker has entered into an agreement with the automotive portal CarDekho for the same. Carwale will buy MG Hector Plus at a 60% price after three years of ownership under the "3-60" scheme, which is a desirable value.

Rajiv Chaba, Chairman and Managing Director, MG Motor India, said at the launch, "We entered the Indian automobile market in 2019 with MG Hector. Our vision has been to touch the lives of car owners in India so that they can be linked to the world's best technology.

The 6-seater internet SUV is a mix of technology-assisted luxury and comfort to provide perfect family-moments to all our customers."

Under MG Shield, the MG Free-three, the '5S', i.e., Free 5-Year/Unlimited KM Warranty, Free 5-Year Roadside Assistance, and Free Labor Charge for the first 5 services have been extended. All these elements under 'MG Shield' aim to enhance the MG scholarship experience and provide full peace of mind to MG customers. The total cost of honor (TCO) of the 6-seater SUV is the lowest in this segment. It is calculated based on 45 paise per kilometer for its petrol variants and 60 paise per kilometer (100,000 km used) for diesel variants. MG Hector Plus further offers the best-prepaid maintenance plan starting at Rs 8,000 for 3 years as part of its classic package.

As part of its commitment to customers, MG has also expanded its contact-less technology suite called 'Shield+.'

The reputed carmaker has included several value-added features in Shield+, such as digital scheduling and online booking of Hector Plus, Mgcare@Home, and over-the-air updates, etc. It has introduced MG v Phy, a contactless audio-guided feature demonstration of its products in the showroom while maintaining social dissing.
