The pre-booking of MG Astor for 2021 has been closed. And it took neither half an hour before the official website previewed ‘MG Astor bookings sold out for the year 2021’. The pre-booking portal had opened for an advance amount of Rs. 25,000.
The company informed that 5,000 units were put on sale on 21st October. It was the count the carmakers made up to this year. The deliveries of the first phase of the Astor SUV are set to start in November.
Rajeev Chaba, President, and Managing Director, MG Motor India, said, “We are impressed about the response we have received from the customers. Although, given the global chip crisis that the automobile industry is undergoing, we can only deliver a limited number of car units this year. We expect supplies to become better from the upcoming year.”

The price tag of the top model starts from Rs 15.78 lakh (ex-showroom) and goes up to Rs. 17.38 lakh (ex-showroom). These prices are just introductory.
