Electric vehicles create strong sales for MG
According the MG Motor UK, 883 exciting new MG models found homes during February despite a declining automotive market overall. The marque, once again, remains the fastest growing car manufacturer in the UK with market share now of 1.1%
Accounting for 28% of the brand’s sales volume, the hugely popular ZS EV all-electric SUV, which Adam Sloman, MG Car Club General Manager recently reviewed, continues to win the hearts of buyers across the country. Offering efficient and practical, zero-emission motoring without breaking the bank, the truly affordable EV has secured a podium position as one of the best-selling electric cars by volume industry-wide in the UK.
With plenty of space for all the family and a generous range complimented by its rapid charge capability, ZS EV continues to outperform MG’s aspiring sales targets as the marque looks to establish itself as a key player in the electric vehicle sector. Many ZS EV buyers are already enjoying the benefits that zero-emissions motoring can bring, along with MG’s key hallmarks of price, practicality, technology and style.
Daniel Gregorious, Head of Sales & Marketing at MG Motor UK, said: “Consistent and sustained growth continues to be a priority for MG and we are delighted that our positive February results bucked the market trend. 2020 is set to be a pivotal year for the MG brand as we look to further increase the number of exceptional franchised dealers in our network and achieve our Momentum & Growth mid-term plan target of 30,000 sales by the end of the year. With our year to date sales already up by a healthy 127%, and our overall market share standing at 1.2%, we’re confident that MG is firmly on track to achieve our targets, bringing our well-built and well-equipped model range to a bigger audience than ever before. ZS EV in particular has spearheaded our sales and has given the MG brand real impetus as one of the only manufacturers able to supply the growing demand for EVs.”
MG’s established models have also enjoyed sales success during the past month as well. MG3, saw retail sales double when compared to the same month last year.
Buyers have also continued to enjoy the spacious and stylish MG ZS, with a substantial 67% growth in retail sales versus February last year.
We sincerely hope to see some of these proud new owners join us at MGLive! where we will be celebrating 90 years of being the original club for MGs.
