The news of MG Motor India clocking a decent sales growth on YoY basis comes as a breath of fresh air as even more popular carmakers, including Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai, have suffered from an almost 50 per cent drop in their sales figures. A lot of this can be attributed to the general lack of interest in buying cars around the closure of a financial year and the huge setback suffered due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

This year, MG Motor India sold 3,130 units in January and 1,376 cars in February. The BS-IV stock of the Hector SUV across its dealerships and production facilities is almost over. MG has already commenced production of BS-VI compliant models. Right now, however, MG Motor has stopped the production of new models at its Halol facility in view of the global pandemic.

It may be noted that the local subsidiary of MG has its corporate headquarters in Gurugram and its production facility in Halol. Moreover, to prevent Coronavirus from spreading, MG Motor India has now started home delivery of sanitized cars. At the moment, 30,0000 customers are waiting for the MG Hector and 3,000 buyers are waiting for their ZS EV.
