The company’s first product for the Indian market is available in a total of four diesel variants, two petrol-manual variants, two petrol-automatics and three petrol-hybrids.

The company had earlier stated that petrol versions make up more than 50 percent of the Hector's sales, and the variants most in demand are the top two – Smart and Sharp. We had reported that the Hector 1.5-litre petrol-DCT in Glaze Red is the most popular pick among buyers, with a waiting period of over seven months across India. The other two engine-gearbox configurations – the 1.5-litre petrol-hybrid with a manual gearbox and the 2.0-litre diesel with a 6-speed manual – commanded a waiting period of four and three months, respectively.

MG Motor India, which had received over 21,000 bookings for the Hector by July 18, is sold out for 2019 – bookings have temporarily closed. While MG says bookings have now hit the 28,000-unit mark and will re-open soon, a date has not yet been revealed.
