MG Motors today announced that it has sold 710 vehicles in the month of May 2020. This is despite the fact that the British marque faced supply chain issues last month due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. With the easing of lockdown restrictions, the company previous month started operations at its manufacturing facility in Halol, Gujarat. Following strict Social Distancing Guidelines set by the Central and State Governments, the automaker has started to function with 30 percent capacity. In fact in the last couple of days according to the company, they have started operations in 65 percent dealerships with less work force.  

  “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”, commented  Rakesh Sidana, Director – Sales, MG Motor India.
