MG continues expansion plan

MG continues expansion plan

MG is continuing its rapid expansion with 20 new dealerships opening in seven months.

The car company wants to double the amount of MG retailers in the UK by the end of 2014 after seeing a surge in sales recently.

According to SMMT figures, it is now the fastest-growing brand in the country, with a 715% increase in sales seen since the start of the year.

One new dealership, County MG, will open in Bicester, just a mile from the Bicester Village, a designer outlet village which attracts more than five million visitors a year to its 130 boutique stores.

A dealership will also open in Brecon Wales, where rally star Sara Williams will join the MG Motor UK retail network.

Sara became the first woman in 30 years to win a British national rally outright at the Swansea Bay Rally last May.

Two dealerships have also opened in Sheffield.
