The MG Hector top-spec Petrol-DCT variant with Glaze Red paint scheme is in most demand and has a waiting period of over seven months in certain regions.
MG Motors entered the Indian market with a bang. The MG Hector has been received very well by the Indian market. MG motors commenced bookings for the Hector on June 4, 2019 and by the time they announced the prices of the Hector on June 27, 2019, they already had over 10,000 bookings. However, with such huge bookings, the MG Hector now sees a rather long waiting period.
As of today, the bookings for the Hector has crossed 13,000 units and its price seems to have been received very well. MG Motors will initially be able to produce only 2,000 units of the Hector a month. That’s a huge gap between production and number of bookings already received. Customers will see a rather long waiting period, particularly if they have opted for the in-demand versions.
The MG Hector’s top-end Sharp variant with the 1.5L, petrol engine and the DCT gearbox is the version that is in most demand across the country. The MG Hector is this particular version has crossed a waiting period of over 6 months in most places, with Delhi being the highest. Deliveries around this region may even take seven months if booked now.
More precisely, the Hector 1.5-litre petrol-DCT with the Glaze Red paint shade is the one in most demand and has a waiting period of over seven months across India. The 1.5-litre petrol-hybrid with a manual gearbox and the 2.0-litre diesel with a 6-speed manual have a waiting period of four and three months, respectively.
On the other hand, the MG Hector diesel Super variant is the one in least demand and can be had with a relatively shorter waiting period of three months. It is the most value-for-money buy in the Hector range but it misses out on the much hyped about connectivity features.
