MG continues dealer expansion programme
The four new dealerships, based in Doncaster, Northampton, Norwich and Swindon, have already received their MG6 and MG3 allocations and are now ready to start taking customer orders.
These latest MG outlets will be run by CarShop, one of the UK’s largest used car network operations, marking its first venture into new car dealership.
Jonathan Dunkley, CarShop’s CEO, said: ‘We are really excited about expanding our vehicle selection to include the sale of new cars alongside our core business of used. We know the MG brand well and our staff have been fully trained to MG standards. There is huge enthusiasm here for MG. The MG6 is a great value-for-money car that drives superbly and the new MG3 is already a runaway success. We can’t wait to get started. It’s going to be a whole new adventure for us at CarShop and we are certain we can be really successful together.’
In addition, MG has announced a triple appointment in the North East.
Newcastle family business Wingrove Motor Company has been appointed as an MG dealership for one of the brand’s key open points. The MG Newcastle showroom, situated on a 2.5-acre site in the west of the city, will be followed by a further two MG after-sales centres – MG Newcastle North and MG Newcastle East.
During the last six months new MG dealerships have opened in Dudley in the West Midlands, Spalding, Woking, Gloucester and two in Sheffield. MG added that the network is set to grow considerably during 2014.
