MG Motor has delivered 2,000 units of Hector last month

Compared with the previous month, the sales of the MG Hector have increased by a large number. In July, the total monthly sales stood at 1,508 units. Earlier, it was confirmed that the MG Hector has received 28,000 bookings. The overwhelming response for the MG Hector has forced MG Motor to stop receiving bookings for the MG Hector as the current production facility of the British manufacturer cannot meet the increasing demand. However, if the customers are willing to expand the waiting period to the next year, MG can still accept their booking. For that reason, the booking for the MG Hector is now crossing the 39,000 units mark. In response to the growing interest for MG Hector, the British marquee promised to push the production capacity. As confirmed by Gaurav Gupta, Chief Commercial Officer of MG Motor India, the car firm is “working closely” with their partners to increase the production for the MG Hector.
