MG outperforms UK car market, with January sales up 130%.
In 2017 MG's new car sales were up 6% year on year. Sales success due to MG ZS 7 year warranty and MG3 and GS 5 year warranty. MG Motor UK's product range represents extremely good value for money. MG Motor UK has announced an exceptional month for sales, reporting a total of 475 vehicle registrations in January - a staggering 130% increase compared to the same period in 2017. Despite a market downturn of 6.3%, according to figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), MG has successfully bucked the trend becoming the UK's best performing car brand in January.
The Longbridge based company, which concluded 2017 with a year on year registration increase of around 6%, looks on course for a successful 2018, despite challenging market conditions. Daniel Gregorious, Head of Sales and Marketing at MG Motor UK, believes, 'The launch of MG Motor UK's latest model, the MG ZS, and a move away from manufacturing diesel vehicles has been instrumental to this continued success'.
'Although the UK new car market is proving challenging, we have seen a great result from our strategy of offering affordable, quality cars to our customers. As a company, we made the decision to sell only petrol cars and as sales of diesel cars continue to fall, we are seeing the benefit of this commercial decision'.
'We have also launched a competitively priced Compact SUV, the MG ZS, that starts from just £12,495. With a class leading 7 year/80,000 miles warranty, we have found a recipe for success and we are seeing a huge amount of interest in this offer. Based on the sales of the MG ZS, we increased the warranty on our stylish Supermini, the MG3, to 5 years/60,000 miles bringing it in line with the existing 5 year/60,000 miles warranty for the MG GS.
