Capping off what has been quite an eventful debut year in India, Morris Garage sold 3,021 units of the Hector SUV in December of 2019. While the car is the only offering from the company here so far, MG is set to bring in the ZS EV later in January.

The Hector was launched in India back in June and despite a sluggish Indian auto industry overall, managed to create not just a buzz but found many takers as well. That MG is a new company in the country hardly seemed to matter as many appreciated the butch-style looks of the car as well as the comfort and conveniences offered. The company informed that it had sold 15,390 units of the vehicle since launch and till the end of 2019. "As a new entrant in the Indian market, the robust sales momentum of our first offering, the Hector, has been very encouraging," said Rakesh Sidana, Director – Sales, MG Motor India. "We are working closely with our global and local suppliers to increase the production of the Hector in 2020 to support the booking backlog."
