New MG3 Leads MG Motor to August Sales Record

Led by the release of the new MG3, MG Motor UK continues to go from strength-to-strength in 2018 by once again announcing record new car sales.

The New MG3

The August sales results, taken from the latest SMMT market report, show that MG has achieved an impressive 5,685 new car registrations so far in 2018, over 1,000 units more than it achieved in the whole of 2017. This significant increase in new car registrations amounts to an increase of 129% compared with the same period in 2017.

In August alone, MG managed to grow its monthly volume by an incredible 223%, achieving 586 registrations compared with 181 in the previous year. This outstanding sales performance helped MG to achieve its highest monthly market share since it returned to the market in 2008, securing 0.62% of total new car sales.

Daniel Gregorious, Head of Sales & Marketing at MG Motor UK, commented:

August was an extremely busy but rewarding month for MG as we launched our fabulous New MG3 and achieved our best ever monthly market share. We’re getting closer and closer to achieving our stated objective of doubling our sales volume this year and everyone within our business is committed to achieving this goal.

MG now has two cars in its model range which sport a 7-year manufacturer warranty, with the newly launched New MG3 joining the popular MG ZS compact SUV. Both cars are very appealing to new car buyers with keen pricing, great specification, striking looks, and strong finance packages, as well as the long warranty.
