COVID-19 has brought to the forefront an opportunity for various car companies to adopt digitization, empowering their automotive retail and after-sales, and enabling more meaningful customer engagement.
“We are all facing numerous challenges brought about by COVID-19, and this has led us all to find ways to live through and adjust to these unprecedented circumstances. And while we are all waiting for the vaccine and the cure, we witness the invaluable efforts of our frontliners and essential workers, whose dedication to protect and assist us give us the hope to drive forward,” said Atty. Alberto B. Arcilla, president and CEO of MG Philippines-The Covenant Car Company, Inc. (TCCCI), during this week’s launch of an exclusive promo for MG-owning frontliners and essential workers.
These exclusive perks include a 20 percent discount on parts and labor, and access to a priority lane completely dedicated to service frontliners and essential workers. More information on this may be obtained by calling your MG dealership of choice or calling our 24/7 MG Philippines hotline (02-5328-4664).
Atty. Arcilla added: “With this program we hope to impart our sincere appreciation for all that our frontliners and essential workers do, and we salute them for remaining vigilant and dedicated during these challenging times.”
‘MG Forward With All Frontliners’
Together with these perks, MG Philippines also announced its latest sales promo called “MG Forward With All Frontliners”, the company’s way of thanking those who, despite the threat of the COVID-19 virus, carry on and fulfill their roles for everyone’s benefit.
With this latest promo, frontliners and essential workers (as well as their family members) gain access to competitive zero- or low down payment options, or a choice of generous cash discounts on select, brand-new, British heritage MG cars.
Here is a full list of MG models with their respective low down payment or cash discount offers for the MG Forward With All Front Liners promo:
- For MG ZS subcompact crossover SUV, an P18,000 down payment or P90,000 cash discount for its MT Style variant; P25,000 D/P or P90,000 C/D for its AT Style variant; P48,000 D/P or P90,000 C/D for its Style Plus variant; and P28,000 D/P or P100,000 C/D for its AT Alpha variant.

Cash discounts for these offers cannot be used in conjunction with the all-in, low down payment offers of MG Philippines’ “MG Back on the Road” promo; only one or the other can be availed of, per unit, per purchase.
Apart from providing valuable information on all MG models, promos, and aftersales services, the MG Philippines website has just added MG Live Chat Support, an innovative communication tool that quickly connects customers to accredited MG Philippines consultants for any MG-related inquiries.
Available in both desktop and mobile versions of mgmotor.com.ph, the MG Live Chat Support is staffed by MG Philippines consultants on weekdays, Monday to Friday, from 9am to 6pm daily.
The customer only needs to enter the query in the chat box and expect a real-time response. For those using MG Live Chat Support after work hours and on weekends, simply enter contact details and inquiries, and expect a reply on the next work day.
MG Live Chat Support may also be used to schedule a visit to any MG dealership in order to take a closer look at the vehicles on display, schedule a test drive, or have one’s MG serviced by MG-trained and accredited technicians. Those who want to set a schedule may also visit mgmotor.com.ph/dealers and click on the phone number of the dealership.
Atty. Arcilla reminded that scheduling appointments beforehand, whether through MG Live Chat Support, via the my MG App, or by calling the preferred dealership, ensures that the team at the dealership can prepare ahead to address all needs, while adhering to local and national recommendations to practice safe social distancing, while limiting the amount of people in dealerships at any given time.
The following enhanced safety measures are progressively put in place at all MG dealerships nationwide: foot pad disinfectants at showroom main entrance and service workshop entrance; hand sanitizer dispensers available around the showroom floor and in the admin offices; body temperature scanning for all entering the dealership premises; scheduled vehicle and parts delivery (with disinfection); appointment-based service transactions; sanitized consultation area for clients; scheduled daily and weekly sanitization of all areas in dealership facility.
