MG strengthens dealer network with opening of four new sites
- MG Motor UK adds four new sites to further strengthen nationwide dealer network
- Network now comprises 153 dealerships and is still growing
- Latest additions include two new Arnold Clark sites in Glasgow
- MG now seen as one of the most investable marques for dealers
MG Motor UK has further strengthened its growing dealer network with the opening of four new sites across the country in the past month.
The new appointments come hot on the heels of another set of stellar sales results for the nation’s fastest-growing mainstream car brand, with a record-breaking 2021 and more than 13,838 units registered in the first quarter of 2022, giving the brand a market share of 3.1%.
The latest new dealer openings see the brand’s network grow to 153 dealerships, stretching from Lerwick on Shetland to Guernsey in the Channel Islands.
Among the newest additions are two new Arnold Clark sites in Glasgow – one in Bishopbriggs and the other in East Kilbride. This takes the number of MG franchises held by Arnold Clark to seven in total - further evidence that the UK’s biggest dealer groups now see MG as one of the UK’s most investable marques.
The other sites to open in the last few weeks are MG Chiswick, operated by Norton Way, which will increase the brand’s presence in West London and Lancaster MG, operated by DJ Cox.
Commenting on the new dealer openings, Guy Pigounakis, Commercial Director at MG Motor UK, said: “Growing our retail network while also improving its quality have been key objectives for us as we look to give customers a showroom experience that befits the quality of our products.
“We’re already the fastest growing car brand in the UK but the addition of these new sites to our network will make it even easier for our customers and potential customers to access our fantastic models and get the most out of owning them.”
He added: “I’m also thrilled with the calibre of dealers we are attracting to the brand, with three very well established and respected partners like Arnold Clark, Norton Way and DJ Cox coming aboard.
“This shows just how much confidence dealers have in the future of the MG brand and underlines our position as one of the most attractive, investible and profitable marques.”
