MG HECTOR PLUS MPV which was showcased in Auto Expo 2020, will go on sale in India in July 2020. HECTOR PLUS differentiates itself from the successful HECTOR SUV, with captain seats in the middle row. A third row has also been added to suit the family needs. This MPV comes with a premium new look including the all-new Headlamps, Front Grille, Front and Rear Bumpers, New Rear Tail Light Design, and Revised Skid Plates.
MG HECTOR PLUS also comes integrated with Over the Air (OTA) technology, allowing customers to update software/firmware, feature themes, and infotainment content seamlessly.
MG Motor India has commenced production of HECTOR PLUS at its state-of-the-art Halol plant in Gujrat. This technologically advanced plant deploys advanced robotic spot welding, robotic roller hemming, and robotic brazing facilities to achieve superior weld quality and dimensional consistency. The paint shop uses robotic application at all stages of coating to achieve superior paint finish quality and colour harmony. The new assembly line operates with the help of advanced Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) for various assembly processes. A first in the industry, touchscreen pads are also available at each assembly work station, enabling MG employees to connect and alert the system centrally to avoid errors, following the heritage brand’s “first time right build” philosophy, as stated by MG Motor in its press statement.
Speaking on the development, Manish Manek, Chief Plant Officer, MG Motor India, said, “The HECTOR PLUS is aimed at addressing specific family needs with captain seats in the middle row and a third row for teenagers. Further augmenting the HECTOR brand family, the HECTOR PLUS stands out as the smarter choice with advanced technology, best in-class safety, and unmatched comfort.”
