Earlier, due to MG Hector’s overwhelming response the car maker had to temporarily stop accepting bookings and ramp up production at their Halol car-manufacturing facility. The good news is that the MG Motor India have announced that it has re-open bookings of MG Hector from 29 September ‘for a limited period’. To cope up with the demand for MG hector, MG Motor India will begin the second shift from November 2019 and will be adding approximately 500 people to their direct payroll.

Commenting on the sales performance, Rakesh Sidana, Director – Sales, MG Motor India, said, “MG HECTOR continues to further strengthen its position in its segment and win hearts of our customers. As we gradually ramp up our production, we aim to ensure the highest levels of customer satisfaction through timely vehicle deliveries.”

Currently, there are about 15,000 customers in the queue for the SUV, who will be provided with the first preference to book the Hector now that the bookings have opened. As of now, the waiting period for MG Hector currently extends to nearly roughly three months depending on the variant. Interested buyers can book the MG Hector by paying a token amount of Rs 50,000 on the carmaker’s website or at its 120 plus touchpoints across the country.

The not too great news is that the new bookings will be made on the revised price of the MG Hector which has seen an increase of approximately 2.5 per cent (again depending on the variant). However, MG Motor add that ‘the price at the time of delivery will prevail’. Customers who had booked MG Hector in the first phase will be protected from the price increase. The MG Hector is priced at Rs 12.48 lakh (ex-showroom).
