MG Motor India has partnered with Jio Platforms, a prominent digital services provider in India, to introduce a range of innovative connected car features. This collaboration combines Jio’s Hinglish Voice Assistant capabilities with MG Motor India’s newly launched Comet EV, resulting in a seamless and intelligent electric vehicle experience.
MG Motor India has been a pioneer in auto-tech innovation since its inception in the Indian market. They have introduced several groundbreaking features, including the country’s first internet-connected car (MG Hector), the first pure-electric internet SUV (MG ZS EV), and the Gloster with Level 1 Autonomous features.
Innovative Hinglish Voice Assistant System
Jio brings next-generation automotive solutions, including India’s first-ever Hinglish Voice Assistant system, integrated with various apps such as music and payment apps, along with a robust connectivity platform and hardware. Customers of MG Comet EV can now enjoy these innovative assets for an enhanced in-car experience.
Enhanced In-Car Voice Assistant
The embedded Hello Jio Voice Assistant is specifically trained to understand different regional dialects and tonalities across India. Hello Jio provides the best in-car voice assistant experience for Indian users, offering information on domains like cricket, weather, news, horoscope, and more. Users can control their vehicle simply by using voice commands, such as turning the AC on or off, playing songs, and even asking for cricket scores.
State-of-the-Art eSIM Integration
MG Comet EV is equipped with Jio’s state-of-the-art eSIM, which enhances vehicle safety by being integrated during the manufacturing process. This eSIM identifies the vehicle and encrypts communications while the vehicle is in operation, ensuring secure and efficient connectivity.
