Longbridge, 07 July 2014 - MG has surpassed the 50th dealer mark. The landmark figure comes just weeks after MG announced sustained growth in 2014, as the Midlands based manufacturer doubled 2013 total sales volumes in just the first five months of the year.
This week, Seward MG in Havant and Central Garages in Torbay have been announced as authorised MG retailers. The Birmingham based manufacturer is planning a total of 80 dealers in the UK by the end of the year, expanding to 100 by the end of 2015.
MG’s 90th anniversary year continues to be one of unparalleled success for the iconic marque, as figures announced by the SMMT for May reveal that MG once again leads growth for the UK automotive industry.
Success has been due to the recent launch of the MG3 supermini and expansion of the MG6 diesel powertrain family, with a new 129g, 350 Nm performance diesel recently added. Voted by customers as the winner of Best Handling and sixth overall Best Car to Own in the 2014 Auto Express Driver Power Awards, the MG6 is already a favourite with MG owners for its drivability, affordability and exceptionally high levels of equipment included as standard. Now the MG6 is even more appealing as all specifications are available from just £15,455 to £19,995, and with the current ‘High 5’ offer, MG6 customers can buy and drive away with complete peace of mind:
1. Five years free servicing up to 75,000 miles
2. Five years free warranty
3. Five years breakdown cover with the AA
4. Five years fuel subsidy in the form of £500 worth of fuel vouchers
5. Five year low finance of just five per cent APR
Launched in September 2013, the MG3 benefits from an ultra low 4E insurance group, strong residuals of up to 61 per cent, class leading interior and boot space, class leading chassis and driving dynamics and high levels of equipment on all specifications as standard. There are also over one million personalisation options and exceptional value for money aftercare packages to choose from. The MG3 is priced from only £8,399 to £9,999, or from zero percent deposit PCP from only £99 a month or from zero deposits.
Since November 2013, 22 new MG dealerships have opened in Havant, Torquay, 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 the further network of 13 MG after sales specialists.
MG celebrated 90 years of the iconic marque with the MG90 event at Silverstone circuit 21-22 June, which saw over 15,000 enthusiasts attend, and featured a collection of current production and historic MGs worth over £3 million.
