MG Motor had suspended bookings for the Hector SUV for over two months. This happend withing the first month of its launch and many may have felt left out. But if you’re still keen on the Hector, this is your second chance as MG has reopened the bookings for the SUV.
The Hector was launched on June 27 and got over 28,000 bookings since pre-orders began, forcing the carmaker to halt orders and ramp up production. Depending on the variant and city, the wait time till delivery for a new Hector could stretch upto 4 months or more.
MG’s decision to reopen the Hector bookings follows the carmaker’s plan to further increase production in the second-shift at its Halol plant from November 2019. Those who missed out on placing an order for the Hector last time around can do so now at MG’s website or dealerships across the country. The booking fee is set at Rs 50,000.
However, those placing their orders now will also face a price hike of upto 2.5 per cent on the Hector SUV.
The MG Hector rivals the likes of the Tata Harrier and Jeep Compass along with smaller, premium SUVs like the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos. As of now, the Seltos is the only one available with BS6-compliant powertrains.
