MG was today confirmed as the fastest-growing automotive brand in the UK during 2014 according to the latest figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT). The re-emerging brand grew sales by 361 per cent following a highly successful launch of its new MG3 supermini, a major expansion of the Dealer Network and the addition of a new performance diesel powertrain in the MG6.
The record sales results provided the perfect end to MG’s 90th anniversary year after claiming victory as manufacturer’s champions in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship in October and winning gold at the London Design Awards for the MG Design Concept in December.
This expansion in sales has been supported by the significant growth of MG Motor UK’s Dealer Network during 2014 – an additional 24 new dealers were recruited in locations across the UK including Glasgow, Newcastle, Leicester, Coventry, Bicester, Brecon, Norwich, West London, Swindon, Maidstone, Exeter, Falmouth and Newtownabbey and Bangor in Northern Ireland. Further new dealers are already in the process of being appointed and details will be announced during the year.
