MG Motor UK beats 2020 sales volumes and surpasses 20,000 sales in the UK so far in 2021

18th September 2021

MG Motor UK has smashed its 2020 sales record in September, with the 20,000th new MG of 2021 sold, achieving a new milestone for the UK’s fastest-growing car brand.

The 20,000th car – a Battersea Blue MG ZS – was sold privately by OC Davis MG of Camarthen, taking the brand above the landmark figure for the first time and beating the 2020 sales volume of 18,415.

In 2020, MG saw a sales rise of 41% over 2019, while at the end of August the brand had achieved a 65% year-on-year growth in new registrations, driven largely by new models such as the MG5 EV and MG HS Plug-In Hybrid. MG also has the highest pure EV mix of any manufacturer selling both electric and ICE models. As of the end of August, MG held a 1.6% share of the UK new car market and achieved 2.2% of the nation’s total registrations in the last full sales month.

MG Motor UK Commercial Director, Guy Pigounakis, said: “To pass the 20,000 milestone with three-and-a-half months to go is incredible news and it shows just how popular our new models are with the British car buying public, and also how engaged and driven our dealer network is as the brand continues to grow.

MG is rapidly establishing itself as a major player in the UK car market and a highly desirable franchise for dealers, as evidenced not only by our record sales, but also in the sustained growth and geographical spread of our dealers across the UK, who are doing a great job in engaging the public with our amazing brand.

MG currently offers six models in the UK including three plug-in cars – the established MG ZS EV, the game-changing All New MG5 EV and MG HS Plug-in Hybrid, all backed up by MG’s comprehensive  7-year manufacturer’s warranty and fast-developing dealer network.
