MG Motor India is among the passenger vehicle OEMs which continue to face supply chain issues, which has impacted production. Nonetheless, in the April-July 2022 period, the company manufactured a total of 15,952 units, up 24% YoY.

In a statement, MG Motor India said: “The volatility in supply chains continues to cause many production challenges. However, this is expected to improve from next month onwards.

According to MG Motor India, it has a strong order book. The recent launch of the Advanced Gloster, with significant safety, style, and technology enhancements, at a starting price of Rs 31.99 lakh, is expected to double the sales of the Gloster model.
