The launch of the MG Hector in India has seen a complete takeover of the mid size SUV segment. Its sales in July 2019 which stood at 1,500 units overtook stalwarts such as the Jeep Compass, Mahindra XUV500 and Tata Harrier. Launch of MG Hector has resulted in Tata Harrier and Jeep Compass posting their lowest ever monthly sales since launch.
August 2019 sales got even better to 2,018 units and India’s first internet SUV has received over 28,000 bookings since the company opened bookings for the same. The momentum continued even after bookings were closed with over 11,000 additional customers on the priority waiting list.
It is these 11k+ customers, who have now got the chance to book the Hector, before others. They can only book by visiting nearby dealership and pay booking amount to get a confirmed booking number. For those customers who are not in the waitlist, will have to wait till 29th, which is when the Hector bookings will reopen for all.
MG India aims to reduce waiting period by increasing production. While the company produces 3,000 units on a single shift bases as on date, there are plans to add a second shift from November. The company is currently in talks with suppliers to boost capacity while also seeking to increase import of parts especially with order books set to reopen from October so as to take in bookings during the upcoming festive season.
