MG delivers record sales despite Lockdown
Despite the challenges faced by many car manufacturers over the last 6 months, MG has beaten its 2019 sales targets already and is the UK’s fastest-growing car brand, as it continues to buck industry trends, particularly in the EV market.
MG have now delivered over 13,000 cars in 2020, with one of our favourite Electric cars, the popular MG ZS EV leading the charge. (Quite literally!)
The All New MG5 EV and MG HS Plug-in are expected to help MG to reach a tipping point in 2021 with plug-in cars accounting for over 50% of MG Motor UK’s total sales as it establishes itself as the go-to brand for mainstream, affordable electric cars.
The sales record occurred less than a week after MG announced its new MG5 EV and HS Plug-in models, which will now give consumers a choice of three electrified models.
Daniel Gregorious, MG’s Head of Sales & Marketing, said: “Our 7 year warranty and great range of cars have really captured the imagination of Britain’s car buying public and have also helped us strategically grow our dealer network, which will comprise over 120 sites before the end of the year”.
At the end of August 2020, MG’s registrations were up 32.5% year-on-year in a market that was down 39.7%, an unprecedented achievement given that dealerships were closed for three months at the peak of the coronavirus pandemic.
MG currently has a network of 118 dealers with further expansion planned before the end of 2020.
