MG reopens bookings for the Hector
MG Motor India has announced the reopening of bookings for the Hector for a limited period on September 29
When the MG Hector was launched on June 27 it garnered over 28,000 bookings within six weeks, forcing MG India to temporarily close bookings and ramp up production at its Halol manufacturing plant. And, three months after the launch, the Hector’s waiting period still stands at nearly three months depending upon the variant, transmission and colour choice. However, the interest in the Hector, MG’s first product in India, continues at a high, causing MG to ramp up its production for its second shift, add approximately 500 people to its direct payroll beginning November this year.
The current priority waitlist, which stands at 15,000 customers, will be provided the first preference to book the Hector as bookings reopen. During the latest booking period, any new Hector booking will incur a price increase of approximately 2.5 per cent (depending on the variant). However, this won’t apply to customers who had booked MG Hector in the first phase.
Commenting on the re-opening of bookings, Gaurav Gupta, Chief Commercial Officer, MG Motor India, said, “We are extremely overwhelmed with the response that MG Hector has received. As part of our commitment to customer satisfaction, we plan to retain the very special introductory prices for our first customers who have expressed full confidence in the MG brand during its launch. We are also working towards accelerating our production ramp-up to serve our new bookings at the earliest.”
Customers can book the Hector at Rs 50,000 on the MG website or at the carmaker’s 120+ centers across the country.
