MG Motors launched the all-new Hector last year in the Indian market. Soon enough, the SUV started gaining a lot of traction due to its attractive pricing. The company started receiving a lot of bookings, but recently, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, MG could not meet the demands of the people as it had to halt the production at its assembly plant at Halol.
