The MG Hector is the British carmaker’s debutant product in India and the Hector created quite a buzz when it launched. It enters a highly-competitive SUV market where we have plenty of capable rivals. However, overwhelming demand and a capacity crisis at MG’s manufacturing facility in Halol, Gujarat, forced the company to halt bookings, as the waiting period for some of its customers stretched beyond 7 months.

Now that MG Motor India has resumed bookings for the Hector, the company will begin ramping up its production by November of this year. MG India has also announced that from the first round of bookings, 15,000 orders are on its ‘priority waitlist’.

The Hector SUV’s pricing is expected to be revised again by April 2020, once the vehicle gains BS6 compliance. While the petrol variants are expected to get a marginal hike, the diesel engines will become significantly more expensive considering the upgrades they require.

The automaker also plans to launch an electric SUV, the eZS, with around 400km of driving range.
