We will continue to work towards developing safer mobility experiences and services for our customers while providing them with a cleaner and safer in-car environment. As a future-forward brand, this initiative also highlights our readiness for the ‘new normal’ in the post-pandemic world.”
Peter Tham, CEO – Medklinn, said, “An overwhelming percentage of pollutants often gravitates to various surfaces within the car’s cabin. Our patented CerafusionTM technology comes as the most uniquely equipped decontamination solution to address and resolve this issue. We are delighted to partner with MG, a forward-looking and innovative automotive brand, and are confident that our solution will give customers the peace of mind by ensuring that they are safe and protected in their MGs.”
