MG Motor has recently confirmed that it is planning to bring Internet-connected cars to the Middle East from as early as 2021.
The British-born brand, which has enjoyed exceptional growth across the region over the past couple of years, is benefiting from major investment in this new technology by its parent company, SAIC Motor.
SAIC Motor is a pioneer in the field of intelligent car development, with significant experience exploring and deepening the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) technology and the automobile industry.
Through its various sub-brands, the company has already sold more than 1.7 million Internet-connected cars in markets around the world, and is now focused on exploring ways of developing intelligent driving technology that is technically reliable, affordable, safe and controllable.
SAIC Motor is developing a new intelligent cockpit with 5G technology that will increase interaction between the car and the driver, so that the car truly becomes an intelligent and convenient mobile terminal.
From the perspective of technological development, “defining a car by its software” is becoming mainstream, making it essential for car companies to adapt. Software is not only core to the development of the auto industry from “electric” to “intelligent network”, but also key to the differentiation of future automotive products and services.
In the future, SAIC Motor is set to continue to improve its core capabilities in AI, big data, cloud computing and internet information security to speed up the application of software technology in products and services.
In the Middle East, MG cars are already well-known for featuring the latest technology, and this is set to continue as we off er our tech-savvy customers even more choice in the future. Today, MG is active in nine Middle East countries. Among MG’s exciting range of models are the 2020 ‘Middle East Car of the Year’, the all-new MG HS, and the Middle East’s ‘Best Sub-compact Sedan’, the new MG5. The all-new MG RX8 seven-seater SUV, stylish MG6 compact sedan, MG RX5 SUV and MG ZS EV zero-emissions vehicle also form part of the brand’s line-up.
