MG Motor India on Monday has announced that its sales in January 2021 grew by 15% to 3,602 units, as compared to 3,130 units recorded in the same month a year ago.

As the automaker claims, this sales growth in January 2021 comes despite the shutdown for annual maintenance at the auto company’s Halol manufacturing plant in Gujarat during the first 11 days of last month, which impacted the production and the supply chain of the brand.
