MG Motor UK has announced the appointment of Clarks and Cars2 as new franchisees in Wakefield and Kidderminster, taking its total UK showrooms to more than 90.
The brand has now added 13 new dealerships to its network this year and is on track to reach its ambition of 120 sites by 2020.
Clarks will represent the MG brand at its multi-franchise site in Kidderminster. The showroom, which also sells Kia and Suzuki models, has been recently updated and features a 10-bay workshop.
David Allington, network development manager at MG Motor UK, said: “Our franchised dealer network is crucial in supporting both MG’s brand expansion and our customers with a level of service that is second to none.
"This new small but perfectly formed site in Worcestershire is of great strategic importance for the brand.
"It continues to increase our footprint in the area with a partner who has a long track-record of delivering an extremely high level of customer service.”
Wakefield MG will be operated by Cars2 group. The new seven-car MG showroom offers a full service and maintenance facility and a team of technicians fully certified to work on MG models.
Allington added: “Wakefield MG is a great example of how MG is implementing its plan for strategic growth, reaching a new customer base in a previously unserved market.
"The new dealership expands our presence further in the north of England, offering customers the opportunity to purchase our vehicles with ease and provide existing owners access to our specialist service experts.”
MG Motor UK is delivering strong growth with UK registrations up more than 50% year-to-date. It will shortly launch its first electric vehicle, the ZS EV, and has plan to introduce plug-in hybrid vehicles next year.
