Given the current lockdown situation across the country, many customers will not be able to take their cars for servicing. Moreover, there might be many more whose warranty periods might be expiring soon. In order to appease its customers and give them faith in the brand that they have chosen, MG Motor India has made a decision. The automaker has announced that it is extending the warranty and service validity of its cars bought by customers, which otherwise would have expired between April and May of this year. MG Motor has now extended the deadline to July 31, 2021, though there are chances that this too might get extended.
This definitely comes as good news for those who have purchased an MG vehicle, and it is indeed a positive move by the company. However, MG Motor India is not the only automaker in the country to have done this in the past few days. Having said that, with the ever-rising Covid-19 cases in India, many carmakers have already shut down production for at least a couple of weeks, if not more. But unlike some other companies, MG Motor India has also gone ahead and partnered with Devnandan Gases – a Gujarat-based company that produces medical oxygen. Moreover, the automaker had already started sending its own supply of industrial oxygen to the healthcare sector since production was stopped due to the pandemic.
Alongside its societal contribution, MG Motor India is well on its way to providing Covid-19 vaccinations for its employees. While the vaccinations will be free of cost, it is entirely voluntary. The British marque has remained in a pretty good position in India, with almost each and every one of its models achieving some form of success. Of course, its sales had dropped considerably in April due to the pandemic – just over 2,500 units were sold compared to March’s over 5,500. Then again, there isn’t much a company can do when the whole nation is trying to fend off a deadly viral outbreak.
What is definitely interesting is that, despite the dire conditions, MG Motor still has a lengthy waiting list of orders to fulfill. This goes to show that there are plenty of takers for its cars in India, which is why it also makes sense for the automaker to take care of its existing customers. The brand’s portfolio encompasses models such as the Hector & Hector Plus, ZS EV, and Gloster. The MG Gloster is the most expensive of the lot, with prices commencing from Rs 29.98 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Then there is the ZS EV, which is the only all-electric vehicle from MG right now. It wears a window sticker that starts from Rs 20.99 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Wrapping up the loose ends in MG’s offering is the Hector and the Hector Plus. These SUVs start from Rs 13.18 Lakh and Rs 13.63 Lakh, respectively.
