MG Motor India recorded 2,537 retail sales for September 2020. The British carmaker has registered a growth of 22% in sales vis-à-vis Q3 last year. It sold 7,493 units in Q3 of 2020 vs. 6,134 units sold in the same quarter the previous year.
MG has started e-bookings for its premium SUV, Gloster, an autonomous (Level 1) SUV which rivals the likes of Toyota Fortuner, the Ford Endeavour, and the Mahindra Alturas G4. The company also launched HECTOR PLUS which continues to find buyers for family and corporate travel as people begin to travel with easing travel restrictions.
“While the fresh booking trend continues to grow steadily for MG HECTOR and ZS EV, the retail sales were severely impacted in September due to Shraad and Adhik Maas. The wholesale were much more than retails in anticipation of the upcoming festive season. Although the challenges continue in the overall economy and supply chain, our teams are doing their best to overcome these and we are looking forward to festive season and the launch of GLOSTER in October 2020.”Rakesh Sidana, Director – Sales, MG Motor India
The company recently began pre-bookings of the Gloster SUV at a booking price of Rs. 1 lakh, at its 200+ dealerships across India and on the MG Motor India website.
