Operations in Pakistan[edit]

MG Motors in Pakistan faced a delay in spare parts supply, which led to a backlog of customer orders and potential production disruptions. According to a report, the company was taking measures to address the issue, including working with its suppliers and expediting shipments. However, some customers experienced significant delays in receiving their orders, which could have negatively impacted the company's reputation and sales figures.[12]

In 2021, the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) investigated MG Motors in Pakistan for under-invoicing vehicles to evade taxes. The investigation was launched in response to a complaint from a customs clearing agent, who claimed that the company was involved in fraudulent practices. The FBR conducted a thorough investigation and found evidence of under-invoicing, resulting in the imposition of heavy fines and penalties on the company. MG Motors denied any wrongdoing and stated that they were committed to following all relevant laws and regulations.[13]

In the beginning of 2023, The retail price of MG Essence increased by 19% in Pakistan due to an increase in custom duties.[14]
