Delivery of Cars
As we are facing a lockdown which has been extended till the 3rd of March 2020, the deliveries for the MG Hector BS6 diesel model will most likely commence when the lockdown is pulled out. This will be applicable even with the petrol models as well. As we cant be sure if the lockdown is going to extend or not, all the deliveries will begin once we resume the lockdown.
In the coming months, we at MyNewCar are expecting that MG Motors will also launch the three row version of the Hector, which will be called the Hector Plus. Do let us know your take on the BS6 complaint MG Hector and the upcoming MH Hector Plus in the comments section below.
