Slowdown in auto industry? Not for these SUVs
Slowdown doesn't bite these SUVs
And, in line with preference of Indian buyers for offroaders, these products happen to be SUVs — ranging from the sub-Rs 10-lakh mini Hyundai Venue to the Rs 40-lakh-plus Volvo XC40.
Morris Garages Hector
Hector, which touts itself as ‘India’s first internet car’, has managed to get bookings of over 21,000 units since its launch on June 27.
Overwhelmed by the number, which far exceeds internal estimates, the company has stopped taking bookings. “This is a happy, but completely unexpected response. We are sold out for this year, and that too so soon,” Rajeev Chaba, MD of MG Motor India, told.

Mahindra new mini SUV XUV3OO
“We have managed to sell over 25,000 units since the launch in January. We are still having a waiting list, at a time when we are also opening export bookings,” Pawan Goenka, MD, said.
To meet demand, the company has decided to increase production of the model from 5,000 units to 7,500.
