The upcoming MG SUV will be the first offering as part of this collaboration to offer a fully integrated system

In a significant development, MG Motor has announced a partnership with Jio, a telecom service provider, for its connected car tech suite.

Connected car technology is a must-have for premium mass-market cars. To provide the services included in such a feature, these vehicles have an embedded e-SIM for internet connectivity.

Thanks to Jio, MG customers stand to benefit from high-speed internet and connectivity across regions. By staying connected, MG vehicle owners should get real-time telematics from their car on the go and access infotainment services too.

The carmaker offers connected car tech with all its models, from the Hector to the Gloster. Their suite of features is called i-Smart, and includes services like remote engine start with cabin pre-cool, location tracking, geofencing, voice commands, Gaana music streaming, and over-the-air (OTA) updates.

MG Hector: Old vs New

The upcoming petrol-powered ZS could become MG’s most affordable offering in India. It is expected to be launched around Diwali 2021 and will likely be renamed Astor to distinguish it from its EV version that’s already on sale. The SUV, which will feature Jio’s internet connectivity, could be priced from around Rs 12 lakh and serve as an alternative to the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Skoda Kushaq, and upcoming Volkswagen Taigun.
