MG Motor has announced that it has retailed 1,508 units of the Hector in July 2019.

MG claims that it has received 28,000 bookings for the Hector since June 4, 2019. The carmaker has since stopped accepting bookings for the car. In order to meet the demand, it plans to increase its manufacturing facility's production capacity to 3,000 units per month by September 2019.

It is also available in a petrol hybrid variant, which uses a 48-volt lithium-ion battery that provides an additional 20 Nm of torque when required.
