MG Motor has had quite a banging start with the Hector. It's just been 45 days since it's been launched in India and MG has already bagged over 21,000 bookings for the Hector. Given the increase in booking numbers, the company has temporarily stopped accepting booking for the Hector in a bid to ensure timely delivery to those customers who have already booked the car in advance. However, the company has said that it is in talks with its suppliers to ramp up production.

We are, therefore, closing bookings temporarily as this will help ensure timely and orderly deliveries for our customers who have shown tremendous confidence in MG. We are also working with our component suppliers to ramp up production in a gradual manner without any compromise on quality."
