MG Motor react to Budget announcement to reduce electric car grant.
MG Motor UK has announced that it will top-up the Government’s Plug-in Car Grant (PiCG) back to £3,500 for the remainder of March 2020 after the UK Government announced it was to drop to 3,000 in the March 2020 budget.
With the newly enhanced offer, MG say they are reacting to evolving customer demand and industry trends. By topping up the Government’s Plug-in Car Grant back to £3,500 for the remainder of March, MG says they are to continue to bring zero-emissions mobility to a wider audience. Since the start of 2020, 30% of MG’s total sales have been zero-emissions MG ZS EVs.
Daniel Gregorious, Head of Sales & Marketing at MG, said: “With the Government’s announcement that the Plug-in Car Grant is reduced from £3,500 to £3,000 from today, we wanted to be able to help our customers to switch to zero emissions electric MGs without spending more money. We’re delighted to be able to top-up the grant back to £3,500 for the remainder of March. Since the launch of ZS EV in summer last year, our dealerships have been inundated by customers eager to get their hands on the first truly affordable, family-friendly electric car. With this top-up, we’ve maintained the exceptional value-for-money proposition that people expect from MG”.
Positioned as the first truly affordable, family-friendly electric car, ZS EV looks set to revolutionise the way people view zero-emissions motoring. With a WLTP-accredited range of 163 miles, five-star Euro NCAP rating and the high-tech MG Pilot driver assistance suite, ZS EV has room for five and a full-sized boot.
