MG Motor UK and its dealer network are supplying up to 100 electric MG ZS cars to NHS agencies across the UK to be used by those who are at the frontline in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. Cars will be provided free-of-charge for up to six months to support the national effort to overcome the crisis. Free cars will be used to ensure that key workers can travel safely as the UK government intensifies the battle against the dangerous coronavirus.
The cars will be supplied via MG’s nationwide dealer network for up to six months, completely free of charge, to support the national effort to overcome COVID-19. By providing additional transport capacity with low running costs to the NHS, MG and its dealers are doing their bit to support the national effort in these unprecedented times. The first six cars have already been supplied to Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Trust by MG dealer Chorley Group.
Daniel Gregorious, Head of Sales & Marketing at MG Motor UK, said “As a proud British brand, MG is more than just a car manufacturer. Together with our dealer network, we want to do our bit to help the country to come through this uncertain time. By providing 100 electric cars to our NHS heroes, we hope that we will help to keep healthcare moving so that as many people as possible can receive the support they need. It’s also our way of saying thank you to those selfless people who work so hard to keep us all safe”.
