Chinese owned MG Motor starts the roll out of MG Hector Plus from its Halol plant in Gujarat.
The ongoing pandemic has caused a lot of disruption in the automotive industry. Production and sales of cars has hit a new low. With the lifting of the lockdown car manufacturers have slowly started their production facilities.
SIAC owned MG Motor has started the production of the MG Hector Plus at its Halol plant in Gujarat. This is MG`s third product for India. The launch is expected to happen sometime in July while the date has not yet been confirmed by the company.
The Hector Plus is a 6-seater SUV and the vehicle were first shown to the public at the 2020 Auto Expo. The exterior looks quite different in comparison to the regular Hector. It gets a wider grille at the front, new bumpers, headlights and an updated tailgate design. The interiors of the car were recently spotted revealing its huge panoramic sunroof, tan brown leather upholstery along with captain seats for the middle row occupants.
Under the hood the Hector Plus will be powered by the same engine and transmission options that are offered on the regular Hector. The diesel unit is a 2.0 litre engine producing 170 HP of power and 350 Nm of torque, coupled to a six-speed manual gearbox. The petrol motor is a 1.5 litre unit delivering 143 HP and 250 Nm, mated to a six-speed manual and automatic transmission. There is also a 1.5 litre petrol powertrain with 48V mild hybrid technology mated to a six-speed MT. MG Motor has not yet confirmed the power and torque figures for the Hector Plus.
Once launched, the Hector Plus will rival the likes of the Toyota Innova Crysta and the Tata Hexa.
