The name ‘Hector’ draws inspiration from the noble qualities of the Trojan warrior hero – Prince Hector of Troy. It pays homage to great British engineering tradition, as a nod to the Royal Hector biplane, used by the Royal Air Force in the 1930s.
‘Hector’ stands for everything Strong, Bold, Trustworthy and Dependable.
INTRODUCING I-SMART NEXT GEN TECHNOLOGY
The MG Hector is India’s first car that will offer connectivity on the go. And the brain behind it is the revolutionary iSMART Next Gen technology. It combines hardware, software, connectivity, services and applications to make your driving experience easier, smoother, and smarter.
INFORMATION AT A GLANCE
This visually delightful interface gives all the information at a glance and allows you to manage complete vehicle settings, with just a touch.
M2M EMBEDDED SIM
The first to introduce Machine to Machine – M2M embedded sim in our cars. The sim is Internet protocol version 6, IPV6 ready for 5G, making it future proof.
The biggest advantage of connected mobility is OTA (Over the Air updates). For the first time in India, a car will get updated over the air, the MG Hector. So, like your smartphones, you will get a new look screen and themes, new apps and new entertainment content from time to time as new updates are available
By saying “Hello, MG” to activate the in-car control system you can enjoy a safe journey with better interaction between you and your MG. The assistant adapts Indian-English pronunciation to our ASR so the car system can hear you correctly. Besides the accent, Indian-English and English could be very different when it comes to semantics in speech. We overcome the challenge with NLU learning which is Natural language Understanding.
Our Head Unit houses a self-initiated Emergency Call feature that reaches our 24-by-7 Pulse Hub. If airbags are deployed under an emergency situation, E-Call is activated and a text message triggered. This message goes to the Pulse Hub with your Location. Message is also sent to registered phone numbers. A call is made to the head unit immediately. In case of ne response, the owner’s phone is called followed by emergency contact. In case owner does not respond or needs assistance, emergency response is initiated to offer speedy assistance.
