MG Motor India has announced its domestic sales figures for the month of September 2021. This time around, most car manufacturers in India have registered a sharp decline in the overall domestic sales figures. That’s because of the production capacity constraints due to the global chip shortage crisis. However, unlike most other carmakers, MG Motor India has managed to record a 28 per cent YoY growth in sales. The company sold 3,241 units in India in the month of September 2021.
MG Motor India has registered a 28 per cent increase in sales compared to last year as it retailed 3241 units in September 2021. Whereas, in September 2020, the carmaker had retailed only 2,537 units. The company has even recorded high bookings in September for the third consecutive month and its retail sales are also more than last year. However, the global chip shortage crisis has hampered the production capacity of the company significantly.

Commenting on the sales performance of the company, Rakesh Sidana, Director – Sales, MG Motor India, said, “Our production has reduced by almost one-third due to chip shortage. We expect this challenge to continue for the next few months.”
