Based on the MG Hector, this ambulance comes with some reasonable equipment including a stretcher, oxygen system, jump seat for the attendant and more. It took 10 days for MG to develop the Hector ambulance

With the number of COVID-19 cases in India consistently on the rise, automobile manufacturers seem to be leading by example by contributing in every way possible. Aside from contributing to the PM Cares fund and providing masks to healthcare workers, it is great to see the car and bike-makers get creative too. The latest example comes from MG Motor’s factory in Halol. The company has modified the popular Hector SUV into an ambulance. It comes well kitted out with medical equipment like a stretcher, oxygen system with a cylinder, jump seat for attendant, a medicine cabinet, 5 parameter monitor, medical equipment, an internal lighting system and a siren. The ambulance has also been fitted with a fire extinguisher. The ambulance was donated to Hon’ble Minister Shri Jaydrathsinhji Parmar Govt. of Gujarat in Halol by Jayanta Deb, Chief Technical Officer of MG Motor India.

Aside from this, MG Motor India has also donated Rs 2 crore in cash and provided 100 Hector SUVs to frontline workers like medical staff, police and local government officials. Additionally, the Gujarat-based carmaker has also planned a 100-member women’s hostel for its employees and joined hands with Max Ventilator to help increase the production of ventilators.

Other carmakers are also taking many such initiatives. Mahindra has been working on a ventilator since the start of the lockdown and they have already started producing hand sanitisers. Meanwhile, Mercedes-Benz, Skoda and Volkswagen will set up hospitals in Pune. Globally too, car and bike-makers are rising to the occasion and helping in this time of crisis.
