MG Hector bookings stopped temporarily due to high demand - TyreCafe

by Editor News

MG Hector SUV has received over 20,000 bookings in 45 days since the bookings started.


MG Motor, the Indian subsidiary of China’s largest car maker Shanghai Automotive has got off to a great start in India with the launch of MG Hector. Hector SUV has received over 20,000 bookings in 45 days since the bookings started.

The production for the current year has already sold out, which has led MG Motor to close the bookings temporarily. Rajeev Chaba, president and MD of MG Motor India has confirmed that the company will re-open the bookings shortly. He said the decision to hold the bookings temporarily was keeping in mind the company’s commitment to customer satisfaction.

“Hector has received an overwhelming response and we are unable to cater to such high initial demand. We are therefore closing bookings temporarily as this will help ensure timely and orderly deliveries for our customers who have shown tremendous confidence in MG. We are also working with our component suppliers to ramp up production in a gradual manner without any compromise on quality,” said Chaba.

MG India plans to cater to the increasing demand by raising the production capacity for the Hector gradually over the next few months.

The company plans to increase production of the Hector at its Halol manufacturing facility to 3,000 units per month by October this year.

The top 2 variants – Smart & Sharp are seeing the highest demand, with over 50% reservations for the petrol variants. The car has been priced from Rs 12.18 lakh to Rs 16.88 lakh (ex-showroom pan India). The Hector gives a tough competition to the Tata Harrier, Jeep Compass, the Mahindra XUV500 as well as the Hyundai Tucson. MG is also offering ‘MG Shield’ which includes five free services, 24X7 Pulse hub assistance, 5 years/unlimited km warranty and roadside assistance.
