MG Motor India temporarily halts bookings for Hector SUV
New Delhi, July 18 (IANS) MG Motor India on Thursday said that it has decided to temporarily halt bookings for its newly-launched SUV Hector.
Accordingly, the carmaker has already received more than 21,000 bookings for Hector since the bookings began on June 4.
"Our first product, MG Hector, has received an overwhelming response and we are unable to cater to such high initial demand," said Rajeev Chaba, President & MD, MG Motor India.
"We are, therefore, closing bookings temporarily as this will help ensure timely and orderly deliveries for our customers who have shown tremendous confidence in MG."
According to MG India, the increasing demand will be met by raising the production capacity for the Hector gradually over the next few months.
The company plans to increase production for the Hector at its Halol manufacturing facility to 3,000 units per month by October this year.
"We are also working with our component suppliers to ramp up production in a gradual manner without any compromise on quality," Chaba said.
