MG Hector Still Tops Segment Sales Despite Drop In November

Entire segment’s month-on-month sales dropped by nearly 21 per cent.

Hector still selling more than three times as many units as the nearest rival.

Harrier’s month-on-month figures dropped by nearly 40 per cent, still behind XUV500.

The Jeep Compass’ month-on-month sales dropped by over 25 per cent.

MG Hector was the only one in its segment to reach four-digital sales, with even the Harrier taking a dive. Here’s how every model performed in November:

MG Hector: MG Motor retains the throne in the mid-size SUV segment with the Hector. Over 3,200 units were shipped in November but it suffered a drop of over 8 per cent in terms of MoM sales. It has more than 55 per cent of the current segment market share.
