MG Motor has introduced its new iLink application to the Middle East market.
The iLink smart phone application is the first in the Middle East to combine both dynamic and service features in one, providing users with a direct connection to their car. Key features allow users to monitor their driving history, receive service reminders, be alerted if their car is damaged, and track their vehicle.
The application, which is compatible with all MG models, reminds customers when a service is required, and can track user's vehicles using geo-location identification, helping owners if they misplace their vehicle in a car park or lend their vehicle to a friend. MG iLink is the only application in the market to offer punch sensor technology, which alerts the driver if their vehicle is damaged, whether it is parked or being driven by a friend or a valet driver.
Customers using MG iLink will also be able to step into a pre-cooled vehicle during the summer, using the application to turn on the engine, and consequently the air conditioning, in advance of getting into the car. During prolonged periods when the vehicle is not in use, the application can be used to schedule a time for the engine to be turned on for an hour every day.
The ‘driving history' feature can also be used to monitor driving behaviour, customers will be able to use MG iLink to download a daily report which tracks how much fuel they have used over a particular period, the locations visited and fuel costs. By viewing the history of all driver's customers can ensure everyone is driving safely and maximising fuel efficiency.
Tom Lee, managing director, SAIC Motor Middle East said: "MG iLink is being launched specifically for the Middle East market. The application, which aims to ease life and provide peace of mind for our customers, features pioneering technology that highlights MG Motor's commitment to being at the forefront of technology and innovation within the car industry."
