MG Motor India has commenced the deliveries of its new mid-size SUV, MG Astor. The Astor was launched in India just last month and it has received a positive response from the market. The MG Astor is already sold out for 2021 as its first batch of 5,000 units was booked within 20 minutes of the opening of bookings. However, one can still book this SUV online or by visiting MG’s nearest dealership for delivery in 2022. Now, the company has commenced its deliveries and on the first day itself, more than 500 units of the new MG Astor were delivered in India.
