The headquarter has been designed under the “Queen’s Necklace” British design theme and the look and feel of the office will inherit classic British Street. A specially designed “getaway” area will enable employees to de-stress via games like PlayStation, Foosball etc. It is spread in an area of over 46,000 square feet and the new office will be ready in the next two months, to shift the company’s Gurgaon employees to the new premises ahead of the launch of its first model- the MG Hector compact SUV. The flagship showroom on the ground floor will be one of the firsts in the country to showcase its vehicles in the NCR region. It will start operations in Q2 2019.
