MG Motor has achieved another best month for market share in July, taking nearly 2 per cent of the UK car market – a record for the brand. The company’s year-to-date figures are now up 67.5 per cent in a market which has risen 24.7 per cent.
MG has introduced a new longer range model of the MG5 EV. With a 250-mile range from its 61.1kWh battery, the longer range MG5 EV will take an 80 per cent charge in just 61 minutes on a 50kW rapid charger or 40 minutes on a 100kW rapid charger. A 100 per cent overnight fast charge takes approximately 9.5 hours on a domestic home charger supply.
From June 1 to 30, MG is offering a £750 discount across its entire EV portfolio. Until June 30, 2021, anyone booking a test drive in the company’s MG ZS EV, MG5 EV or MG HS Plug-in Hybrid can download a £750 discount voucher, which can be used as money off if they place an order before the closing date. The £750 bonus is in addition to any other offer at the time of purchase and is compatible with 0 per cent finance deals.
MG has committed to honouring the £3,000 Plug-In Car Grant after the Office for Zero Emissions Vehicles (OZEV) cut the level of support and price cap for which awards are eligible on March 18th
MG is now offering its EV customers a full service plan from just £6 a month. “Our mobile phones are paid monthly. Our favourite boxset streaming service is paid monthly. So why pay for your car’s servicing any differently?,” said MG’s Head of Aftersales, Harvey France. “Owners can now spread their running costs with our new pay monthly service plans from MG”.
