MG (Morris Garages) Motor India has commenced commercial production of the MG Hector Plus at its Halol plant.
MG Motor has first showcased the Hector Plus at Auto Expo 2020. The vehicle will hit sales in July 2020.
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.”
The carmaker has also set up a captive vendor park at its manufacturing facility in Halol, further underlining its commitment to create products specifically for India.
The company’s plant in Gujarat deploys advanced robotic spot welding, robotic roller hemming, and robotic brazing facilities to achieve first-class weld quality and dimensional consistency.
The paint shop engages robotic application at all stages of coating to achieve quality product 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, the company said touchscreen pads are also available at each assembly work station for employees to connect and alert the system centrally to avoid errors.
Also, MG Hector Plus comes integrated with the revolutionary Over the Air (OTA) technology, permitting customers to update software/firmware, feature themes, and infotainment content seamlessly.
The vehicle is projected as the first internet car in India. This SUV 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.
