MG honours women Paralympic medalists

MG Motor India has announced that the voice in the personal AI assistant in its upcoming SUV Astor would be powered by Paralympic athlete and Khel Ratna awardee Dr. Deepa Malik.

Deepa has enlisted herself in record books for several driving feats across deserts and mountains. She will humanise the voice of the personal AI assistant in the soon-to-be launched SUV MG Astor.

Mr Rajeev Chaba, President & Managing Director, MG Motor India, said, “At MG, we strive to consistently create exciting and meaningful experiences for our customers. In another first, we are introducing a personal AI assistant in MG Astor. Having Deepa Malik, a woman of many firsts, as a voice for Astor, is in line with our commitment to both community and diversity.”

The British carmaker also saluted Bhavina Patel, who scripted history by becoming the first Indian woman Paralympian to bring home a medal in table tennis. Congratulating Bhavina, Mr Chaba tweeted, “It would be our honor and privilege to gift MG car to Bhavinaben on her return.”
