MG India Sales Sees A Dip For August 2022
MG recently announced its retail sales report for August 2022. The figure stood at 3,823 units. Thus, in terms of Month-on-Month sales, the overall numbers have gone down. As earlier, in July, the company sold a marginally higher 4,013 units. In fact, the Year-on-Year numbers too are down as the company had retained 4,315 units in the corresponding period (August 2021).
The main reason for MG India’s sales decline is the ‘volatility in supply chains’, as mentioned by MG. Hence this caused a host of production challenges, which further impacted sales. But MG did mention that the situation will most likely improve in the next few months. In fact, in order to meet the rising demand for its cars in India, MG has undertaken multiple initiatives. Under this, it will facilitate greater localization of parts and components, as well as the introduction of executive vehicle variants in its product mix.
