MG Motor UK will supply up to 100 electric MG ZS cars to NHS agencies across the UK during the coronavirus pandemic.
The carmaker will supply the vehicles 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 hope 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.’
In related news, BP Chargemaster is providing support to electric taxis who are transporting NHS workers during the Covid-19 pandemic.
UK taxi apps, FREE NOW and Gett, have created a special booking option for NHS workers.
The apps are offering a reduced fare for the workers, allowing them to get to hospitals quickly and at a lower cost.
NHS members can download the taxi apps, enter a pick-up and drop-off location. Then when the taxi arrives if they present their NHS photo ID, the payment will be taken directly via the app and a full £10 fare will go directly to the driver.
