MG Motor India has recorded 710 retail sales for the month of May 2020, amidst supply chain constraints. The carmaker has resumed production at its Halol manufacturing plant with approximately 30 percent capacity utilisation. 65 percent of its showrooms and service stations across the country are also operational with reduced manpower.
Commenting on the sales performance, Rakesh Sidana, Director – Sales, MG Motor India, said,
“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. The production loss notwithstanding, our front-end retail operations continue to operate with less-than-normal staff strength. 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.”
As part of its ‘Phase 2’ expansion plan, the carmaker is introducing the ZS EV in six new cities including Pune, Surat, Cochin, Chandigarh, Jaipur, and Chennai from June 2020; expanding the presence of the pure electric vehicle across 11 markets in India.
Preparing to serve its customers in the new normal, MG Motor India recently introduced its new contact-free technology suite ‘Shield+’ to enhance the customer experience. It continues to follow all sanitisation processes at its facilities to ensure the safety of its customers and employees. The carmaker has also tied up with Medklinn’s Cerafusion sterilisation technology for vehicle cabin sterilisation.
