Under this initiative, MG Motors India will be undertaking complete car sanitisation including fumigation, car wash, cabin refresh and sanitisation of high touch points (Interior and Exterior) of Police vehicles. Fumigation is a technique where gases are released into the cabin of the car to disinfect the interiors including the corners which is otherwise hard to reach using bare hands. This technique also removes micro organsms and other particles in the cabin. This initiative has been started to ensure safety to the occupants in the police car. This is the first time that any manufacture in the country has come up with such a service.

Speaking on the initiative, Rajeev Chaba, President & Managing Director, MG Motor India, said “We understand the risks undertaken by the police department especially in these tough times. In our endeavour to support them, we are going the extra mile with fumigation of police cars, which ensures complete disinfection of the vehicle’s cabin. The fumigation process ensures that these frontline warriors do not have to wait for long as their vehicles get sanitised and prepared for the next trip.”
