• Community Service takes precedence over Business at MG Motor during May 2021

Gurugram, June 1, 2021: MG Motor India has focused on community service over commerce during the month of May 2021.

MG Motor recently joined hands with Devnandan Gases Pvt. Ltd. in Gujarat, and facilitated increase in production of oxygen by 31% at the latter’s plant in Vadodara. It further aims to ramp up the throughput by 50% soon. At the same time, MG’s Hector Ambulances continue to serve doctors and medical staff during their service to the nation. Also, the automaker recently offered 200 sustainable beds for COVID-19 patients.

The vehicle production during the month was impacted due to shutdown to divert oxygen for medical use. Additionally, supply chain constraints impacted production as suppliers remained closed during the lockdown in May. The retail business was severely impacted as almost all markets remaining closed during the lockdown for most part of the month of May 2021.

Rakesh Sidana, Director – Sales, MG Motor India, said, “In these times, our efforts continue to be directed towards keeping people safe and maximizing service to the community. The continued lockdown in some states in June 2021 indicates that part shortage will continue to hamper overall production next month. Based on the booking trend we are hopeful of an uptrend in June.”

In general, the production levels also remain impacted by the shortage of semiconductor chips globally. The carmaker sold 1016 units in May 2021 on account of lockdown.
