The ongoing shortage of semiconductors has impacted the delivery dates of the MG Astor SUV that was launched in October. MG Motor has informed that all its suppliers are facing a semiconductor shortage and hence the production of the cars, as well as the delivery of those, is up for a setback. Chief commercial officer at MG Motor India, Gaurav Gupta, posted a video message, informing about the automaker's position on booking and delivery dates.

He shared that the situation is currently unprecedented due to erratic supplies and that the weekly schedule of the brand's component suppliers is also undergoing changes. Though the company has promised delivery of 5,000 units in this calendar year, this could spill over to next year if situation doesn't improve. However, all the batch one customers will be protected at the launch price, Gupta informed.
