MG Attracting Attention for the Right Reasons.

An exciting range of models and exceptional build quality will ensure MG continues to increase market share.

 Market Share.

MG is gaining a lot of positive attention in the Australian new car market.

Sales were up in April 2020 by 1.5%, one of only two manufacturers to increase sales in April.

Sales are up a huge 75% year on year. April 2019 to April 2020.

This is even more remarkable as the Australian new car market overall has experienced 25 consecutive months of declining sales.

Climbing the Sales Ladder.

MG has more than 20 dealerships around Australia. The brand is proving popular with clients thanks to a broad range of well-priced, high-quality vehicles. They deliver style, comfort, and modern technology.

The brand has reached 15th place out of the 49 manufacturers represented in the Australian market. This looks likely to keep improving.

I recently spoke to John Hughes of John Hughes MG in Victoria Park, Perth, Western Australia. He is the biggest selling MG dealer in Australia.

I asked him why he thought MG was so successful.

He told me that “MG has great build quality and that MG are prepared to back the brand with a 7-year new car warranty and 7-year roadside assistance.”

Mr Hughes said that “Unlike some competing brands MG is making a strong commitment to the Australian market, which will give buyers confidence.”

He said that the “The MG range represented exceptional value for money with an extensive range of features that come as standard.”

He also told me that “MG has a good supply of stock in Australia and should be able to deliver most models as required”.

MG are developing some exciting new models that include electric vehicles and sports models.

John Hughes has been selling cars in Victoria Park for over 50 years and he is proud to say that “His reputation, is your guarantee”.
