MG ADDS TO RAPIDLY EXPANDING DEALER NETWORK


Longbridge, UK, 30 May 2014 – MG has added 20 new sites to the iconic marque’s rapidly expanding dealer network in just seven months, as part of ambitious plans to double the amount of MG retailers in the UK by the end of the year.

The huge expansion of the dealer network has been reflected in a surge of MG sales. MG is now the fastest growing brand in the country, as recently announced SMMT figures show an astonishing 715 per cent increase in sales since the beginning of the year.

Four new sites have opened in the last few weeks including;  

County MG in Bicester, situated just one mile away from Bicester Village, the UK’s leading designer outlet  village, attracting more than five million visitors a year to its 130 boutique stores.

In Brecon, Wales, one of Britain’s brightest female rally stars is one of the latest dealers to join the MG Motor UK retail network. Sara Williams is currently the most successful female British driver in the history of British national rallying, becoming the first woman in 30 years to win a British national rally outright at the Swansea Bay Rally last May.

Recently appointed Maidstone MG will be run by the F. G. Barnes and Sons group, one of the region’s best-known family firms, operating seven automotive sites across Surrey and Kent. As one of the largest automotive groups in the UK, it regularly features in the Motor Trader Top 200 and last year announced a turnover of over £65 million.

Purbeck MG in Wareham will cover the Purbeck peninsula and key towns such as Poole, Swanage and the western area of Bournemouth.

Since November 2013, 20 new MG dealerships have opened in south Sheffield, Dudley, Gloucester, north Sheffield, Woking, Spalding, Barnes in West London, Newcastle, Leicester, Harrogate, Doncaster, Northampton, Swindon, Norwich, Falmouth, Brecon, Maidstone, Wareham on the Purbeck peninsula, Oxfordshire and Exeter.  

Further new dealer appointments will be announced shortly, as MG plans to have around 80 sales dealerships on board by the end of the year, these will be supported by a further network of MG after sales specialists.
