MG Motor India converts its Hector into an ambulance
MG Motor India has just announced it has converted one of its Hector SUVs into an ambulance and has donated it to the Vadodara healthcare authorities. The modified Hector ambulance comes with all the essential medical equipment that provides immediate assistance for the patients who need to be transported to the hospital.
The conversion of this MG Hector was overseen by MG Motors India's engineering team from its Halol plant, with the assistance of Ahmedabad-based Natraj bodybuilders to help with all the essential retrofitting modifications. The entire process took just 10 days to complete.
From the photos, MG Motor India shared on their social media profile, you can see the MG Hector has been equipped with all the essential medical equipment you would see in a traditional ambulance. It even has a full-size stretcher in the back along with an oxygen system with cylinder, a jump seat for a healthcare attendant at the rear, fire extinguisher and a cabinet with a five-parameter monitor, and internal lights with a light bar. Additionally on the exteriors is a siren with an amplifier and a light bar but other than that, the MG Hector looks completely stock from the outside.
MG has also been active in various other ways in terms of providing Hectors SUVs all across the country from its dealership network for doctors and frontline healthcare workers to use, it has also donated Rs 2 crore worth of medical equipment to hospitals around Halol and Gurugram.
This is one of the innovative ways MG Motors India has come up to tackle the current Covid-19 pandemic crisis by converting its Hector into an ambulance. Indian automakers have really put their best foot forward during this time, aiding authorities in the best way they can.
