waiting period for mg cars in india hits three months

MG Motor has seen a great deal of success in the Indian market. In fact, February saw the Chinese-owned British automaker selling 4,329 units – marking a year-over-year growth of 215 percent! The company attributed the tremendous growth to the Hector, Gloster, and ZS EV – all of which have done their part. However, along with the staggering growth, MG Motor India has been facing issues regarding a shortage of semiconductor chips. Over the past few months, this issue has been affecting pretty much every major automaker in the country.

Furthermore, the rising number of orders for MG cars is also another reason behind the growing waiting period. According to MG Motor India, the current waiting period for its cars range between two to three months. Since the MG Hector is the brand’s best-selling model in the country, it will be logical to assume that it has the longest waiting period. However, with no exact numbers from MG, new customers can expect the whole model lineup to boast a long enough queue.
