MG Hector comes in 4 variants Style,Super,Smart & Sharp & one more special variant which is first in it’s segment under 20 lakhs SUV which is the “hybrid” one. There are lot of myths related to Hybrid car let me clear your doubt first. Well Hybrid car contains a large battery back at the back which helps us lot’s during acceleration of vehicle or when car need’s extra power then power can be supplied by these battery packs but when power was consumed then how it can charge , so it can charge when you can apply brakes then kinetic energy during braking can be converted into mechanical energy & vice versa & that’s how the stuff works.Now come back to the variants of Hector.
