MG Motor to shut down Halol plant for a week

MG's production is likely to be hit by at least 20-30% in April 2021.

MG Motor has announced that its manufacturing plant in Halol, Gujarat will be shut down for a week, from April 29 to May 5, 2021. The decision has been taken due to the rising number of Covid-19 cases and a shortage of parts.

The supply chain has been adversely affected by the Covid-19 restrictions in Maharashtra and Delhi-NCR at a time when the company was already facing a parts shortage. As a result, production is likely to be hit by at least 20-30% in April.

The carmaker has requested its suppliers to build their inventory to support production when it resumes.

Earlier this month, Toyota had also announced a temporary shutdown of its Bidadi plant. During the 3 week-long shutdown, the company will be undertaking maintenance.
