Since the start of ops, MG has managed to maintain its position as a dependable automaker in the country. Having launched vehicles in select segments, the automaker has outpaced competitors in certain months, and secured a significant market share.

However, continued niggles in the supply chain is a focus area. They involve multiple processes in producing and delivering a product or service to customers. Recent disruptions such as COVID-19, and shortage of parts have for months negatively impacted production levels for multiple manufacturers. Recent improvements in the supply chain and resolving disruptions, have boosted production and stabilized the supply chain to a great degree. Despite this progress, some MG product variants still face challenges, potentially due to shortages, production limitations, or changing demand. MG Motor must address this to fully recover and ensure a stable supply chain for improved vehicle delivery schedules.

MG Motor India starts 2023 with over 4k units reported in retail sales for January. Having ended 2022 with over 48k units in sales, monthly sales averaged 4k units. For January 2023, retail sales are reported at 4,114 units. This represents a YoY decline of 4.3 percent compared to January 2022, when the company retailed 4,306 units.

However, when compared to December 2022, there was a MoM growth of 5.51 percent, with the company selling 215 more units in January 2023 as compared to December 2022 (3,899 units). YoY decrease in sales can be attributed to various factors such as market conditions, competition, and evolving consumer preferences. Despite the dip in sales YoY, the MoM growth shows positive momentum for the company and suggests a potential for recovery in the coming months. Especially once supply chain constraints are completely smoothened.
