MG Motor Registers 14 Percent Rise in Sales on Back of New Hector

MG Motor, which launched a few new models this year, reported a 14 per cent year-on-year sales growth last month. The company delivered 5,125 units in June. In the same month last year, the company had sold 4,504 units. The best selling model for the company is the Hector SUV. Recently its new version was launched. MG Motor also launched Comet EV, the lowest priced electric car in the country in April.

The company’s sales have also increased as compared to May. MG Motor expects the sales growth to continue. However, it says there was a supply disruption due to the recent cyclonic storm Biparjoy.

The company is also offering free installation of the charger at home or office for the ZS EV customers. MG Motor claims that the ZS EV can accelerate from 0-100 kmph in just 8.5 seconds. It comes with a 50.3 kWh capacity battery pack, which is mated to a permanent magnetic synchronous motor. This powertrain gives the car a power of 174 bhp.
