When the motoring industry of this green and pleasant land of ours looks back over these last few rather unusual months they could do far worse than cast their eyes towards the resurgent MG Motor UK. Why? Well MG Motor is celebrating once again after achieving its best ever June sales results. The company sold 2,025 cars in the month, its biggest ever June and its second highest volume month ever, after March 2020. In addition, MG Motor achieved a record market share of 1.4%, the highest monthly figure it’s achieved so far and this is during (perhaps) some of the worst trading conditions for the last few decades.
Incredibly, year-to-date, MG’s sales have increased by 23% versus the same period in 2019, a remarkable result given the fact that showrooms across the country were closed for almost three months during the recent lockdown. MG’s market share now stands at 1.2%, an increase of 0.7 percentage points. The main volume driver this year has been the MG ZS EV, a family-friendly SUV which is currently the third highest selling fully electric car in the UK.
Daniel Gregorious, Head of Sales & Marketing at MG Motor UK commented to MotorMartin that, “June was a tremendous month for MG as we smashed our volume and market share records. I’m so pleased for our dealers across the UK who have come through a challenging time wide awake and fighting fit. Their hard work has delivered this result and I pay tribute to their resilience. In the second half of 2020 we look forward to welcoming even more new customers to the MG brand, especially those seeking value-for-money electric motoring”.
MG has a network of 110 dealers. To find your local dealer, or to discover the high-tech, value-for-money range of cars on offer, MotorMartin can happily recommend you visit MG.CO.UK.
