MG has announced that it will supply up to 100 new electric cars to NHS agencies working to fight the coronavirus outbreak.

The budget British brand has said that its dealers will provide MG ZS EV models to create additional transport capacity for NHS staff around the country as they tackle the virus.

Up to 100 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.

The first six cars have already been supplied to Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Trust by MG dealer Chorley Group.

In a statement, the brand said: “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.”

Daniel Gregorious, head of sales and 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”.
