- MG Halol plant to halt operations from 29 April to 5 May
- Waiting period on models up by two to three months
MG Motor India has announced that it will shut operations at its Halol plant in Gujarat for seven days starting from 29 April to 5 May, 2021 to break the chain of Covid-19. The move was confirmed by Rajeev Chaba, President and Managing Director, MG Motor India a few days back on social media platform.
Last month, the carmaker had stated that the delivery timeline for all its models across all variant options was up by two to three months. While MG cited increased demand as the cause for the delay, the ongoing global shortage of semi-conductors could also be a factor for delayed production.
Furthermore, MG hiked the prices of the Hector and Hector Plus SUVs earlier this month. This was the third price escalation by the company since the onset of the new year. To know the latest prices of the models, click here.
