MG Motor India plans to increase the production of Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV), Hector, by about 30 percent after the implementation of Bharat Phase-Six (BS-6) emission standards from April 1. The company will review its plans for a pure electric vehicle priced below Rs 10 lakh after a good response from the electric SUV.

Rajiv Chaba, Chairman and Managing Director of MG Motor India Company said, ‘In case of Hector, we are planning another ramp up. This can happen in a period of two-three months. ‘ The company launched Hector in July 2019. 15,930 units of Hector have been sold so far.

The company has sold 3,021 hectares only in December 2019. He said, ‘We are currently focusing on shifting from India Phase-4 to India Phase-6 in terms of dealers’ stock. We will make a decision based on the next two-three months. We believe that 3,500 to 4,000 units of hectare can be produced per month. ‘

He said that there may be some problems in the first quarter due to the adoption of new emission standards, but from April to May, 3,500 to 4,000 units of hectare can be produced per month.

Currently, the company is producing 3,000 units of hectares monthly at the Halol plant. The company has received over 2,800 orders for the new ZS EV. The company is also planning to increase the production of ZS EV from the current 200 units per month to 300 to 400 units in the next three-four months.
