MG Motor UK’s family-friendly SUV, the MG GS, has been announced as the company’s fastest-ever selling vehicle. Launched at The London Motor Show in May 2016, the model has already surpassed 500 unit sales in just 176 days.
Reaching the milestone faster than any other of the manufacturer’s vehicles, even its stylish supermini, the MG3; success of the MG GS demonstrates market demand for a fun, family-friendly SUV – available at a sensible price.
Sales of the GS reflect MG’s continued success in the UK, with the brand recently announced as the country’s sixth fastest-growing automotive business, reporting 4,035 year-to-date vehicle registrations – already 956 units more than 2015.
Matthew Cheyne, Head of Sales & Marketing at MG Motor UK, commented: “As our first entry into the SUV marketplace, the MG GS has continued to delight customers nationwide – a sporty, stylish and affordable vehicle for all the family to enjoy.
“Surpassing the 500-unit milestone faster than any other MG model in the modern era shows a highly positive market outlook, as well as considerable demand for a fun yet sophisticated SUV.
“However, we couldn’t have achieved such impressive sales volumes without the support of our national distributor network, which has continued to play an instrumental part in the promotion and sales of each model in the MG family. For this reason, I would like to extend my personal thanks to each dealership within the group.”
