UK SALES APRIL - MG MOTORS - The brand continues to grow, and it's great to see.
MG continues its sales success with latest figures revealing April 2015 as the best for April registrations since MG Motor UK was formed. Following the release of the new car registrations from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), MG is pleased to see a 39 per cent increase on April 2014’s figures.
The British marque is also celebrating a 52 per cent increase from last year (year-to-date). MG’s registrations, from January until April, have pushed the manufacturer past the 1,000 mark which means in the first four months of 2015 MG has more than doubled the 2013 figure.
Matthew Cheyne, MG’s Head of Marketing, said: “With the release of the latest figures, it shows the continual growth and success of MG’s sales. These figures are increasing month by month, and this is all before the new MG6 has officially landed.
“As our dealer network grows and dealers sell more, we will continue to expand as a company and we are still pushing for at least 70 dealers by year end.
“With dealer demonstrators going out to our dealer network this week, we have high hopes that based on feedback, demands for test drives and deposits already paid; the new MG6 will bring the brand even more success.”
The iconic British MG brand can trace its history back to 1924 and is world famous for making stylish cars that are fun to drive and own and are sold at remarkably affordable prices. Modern MGs, which are designed, engineered and finally assembled in Longbridge, Birmingham, continue this long and rich MG tradition.
Two cars currently come off the Longbridge assembly lines: the MG6 and the MG3 with several models planned for the immediate and longer-term future.
The MG6 is a medium-sized fastback offering fantastic dynamic handling, high levels of interior comfort and a tremendously spacious cabin area with a cavernous boot. The MG6 won the 2014 Auto Express Driver Power Best Handling Award.
The MG3 is a new generation super-mini which brings fun and style to this sector of the market at very affordable prices. The 1.5-litre petrol-powered car can also be personalised, so owners have the option of giving their car their own style-statement.
MG was voted the third best manufacturer in the UK in the Auto Express Driver Power Awards in 2014. MG was the fastest growing brand in Britain in 2014 as shown by official figures issued by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders. Currently MG has the fastest growing network of dealers in the UK as sales continue to surge.
