Delivery of MG Astor could get delayed due to chip shortage – New Delhi News


“We are all facing a situation very unprecedented. The supply of chips and semiconductors are very uncertain and very dynamic,” Gupta stated.

“Sometimes our suppliers, whether it is global or European suppliers, have a weekly schedule which also gets altered. And that makes us change our production plans.”

“We have also seen very high demand for certain variants, which is different from the original plan, for example, our customers of Style and Super. But we have recalibrated our entire work at the backend to be able to support our customer base,” he added.

The automaker goals to ship its batch 1, which incorporates first 5,000 automobiles, within the present calendar 12 months.

“But just in case, there’s a spillover to next year, I can assure you all batch 1 customers will be protected at the launch pricing,” he added.

The MG Astor compact SUV was reportedly launched in India final month with costs beginning at Rs 9.78 lakh for the bottom ‘Style’ variant, whereas the top-of-the-line ‘Sharp (O)’ variant is priced at Rs 17.38 lakh.
