COVID-19 is spreading across the world at a rapid pace, and effecting thousands of lives. Moreover, this contagious virus is also affecting the Indian automobile industry, as many car launches have been delayed and production has been halted. MG has recently come up with an innovative idea to protect its customer from coronavirus.
Visiting dealerships at this time can be quite risky, so the car manufacturer has initiated a new program, where the sanitized cars are being delivered to customers' homes. This new initiative by MG will promote social distancing, which is one of the most effective ways to prevent coronavirus from spreading. The company has also released a new video on their official YouTube channel.
The video shows how they are maintaining hygiene of their dealerships by sanitizing it and also providing masks and hand sanitizers to the customers. Moreover, the steering wheel, seats and gear knob of MG Hector and ZS EV are fully covered before the vehicle is delivered to the customers. This practice will minimize the risk of contamination because laboratory researches revealed that COVID-19 can remain active up to 3 hours and more in a closed environment. Moreover, MG has also said that the delivery executives will strictly follow all the recommended hygiene guidelines while delivering vehicle to customers.
Around 30,000 customers are waiting for their Hector, while 3,000 customers are waiting for MG ZS EV
This is the first time that car manufacturer is offering an option of home delivery of sanitized cars. We also expect other carmakers to introduce similar strategies to protect customers and staff from this deadly disease.
