Rising from zero figures like other manufacturers, MG has also shared their retail sales number for May 2020. MG has resumed all operations and dealerships, while not at their full capacity but they have been resumed operating.
Their manufacturing plant at Halol has started with 30 per cent capacity utilization. While the showrooms and service centres are back at 65% of their operational capacity. Compared to March 2020 where MG Motor sold 1,518 units, that’s a decline of 46%, but if we look this from another perspective. Compared to the previous month with zero sales this is some good numbers.
These 710 retails units may also include some units of MG ZS EV, while the majority portion will be the sales of the Hector. MG Motor is hoping to get back to normal sales number from July 2020 onwards. As Mr Rakesh Sidana, Director – Sales, MG Motor India, commented, “Supply chain disruption coupled with stricter credit financing along with non-operation of some dealerships due to the lockdown have impacted our sales in May.”
He further added ” At these times, we remain connected with our customers waiting for delivery of the HECTOR and continue to prioritize deliveries with supply chain improvements in June. We hope to restore normalcy from July onwards. All of our vehicles’ stocks across channels and dealership inventory are BS-VI units.”
MG Is currently working on their ‘Phase 2’ expansion plan, they will introduce the ZS EV in six new cities including Pune, Surat, Cochin, Chandigarh, Jaipur, and Chennai from this month. This will expand their electric vehicle portfolio presence in a total of 11 cities in India.
While getting back to reopening the dealerships and manufacturing MG Motor India is taking all the precautions. With their ‘Shield+’ contact-free suite to provide the customer with a safer experience. They even have tied up with Medklinn’s Cerafusion sterilisation technology for vehicle cabin sterilisation, so that you buy your car it is a safer place to be in.
