MG Motor India garnered a cumulative domestic tally of 2,481 units in the month of November 2021 as against 4,163 units during the same period last year with a YoY sales decline of 40.4 per cent. Compared to the previous month of October 2021 with 2,863 units, MG endured a negative MoM growth of 13.3 per cent.
The British manufacturer owned by China’s SAIC recorded 1 per cent market share last month with a drop of 0.4 per cent. MG said the drop in volumes was attributed to the global chip shortage that resulted in production issues and that it is continuously working towards reducing the waiting period of its cars.

It also recorded 51 per cent de-growth on an MoM basis as 2,478 units were sold in November 2020.
