MG cemented its position as the fastest growing mainstream car brand in the UK with 4,184 sales, the second time it has surpassed 4,000 sales in one month, setting yet more records for the UK’s fastest-growing mainstream car brand. The MG ZS was also the UK’s sixth best-selling model across the entire car market.
The company’s year-to-date sales are now up 73.4% year-on-year, with the company expected to beat it’s 2021 sales target of 30,000 new cars with weeks to spare. It has the highest sales growth of any brand in the country’s top 27 car manufacturers.
Much of the success was driven by the brand’s plug-in models, with MG having the highest battery-electric (BEV) mix of any manufacturer selling a mix of traditional and alternative fuel cars.
Another key part of the sales success was the performance of MG’s dealer network, which is growing rapidly with over 40 new network points being appointed since the beginning of 2021.
MG Motor UK Commercial Director, Guy Pigounakis, said:
November 2021 saw an astonishing set of new records for MG Motor UK.
Our EV performance is especially strong thanks to launch demand for the new ZS EV and MG5 EV models, which have really captured the imagination of electric car buyers. We also have an engaged and excited dealer network and have been able to provide the right cars at the right time, with a focus on generating great business for our retailers and incredible products and back-up for our customers.
This is a key part of our commitment to long-term, sustainable growth and there are more exciting developments to come over the next few months.
MG currently offers six models in the UK including three plug-in cars – the New MG ZS EV, the New MG5 EV and MG HS Plug-in Hybrid – all backed up by MG’s comprehensive manufacturer’s 7-year warranty and rapidly developing dealer network.
