MG Motor UK has grown its representation in Scotland with the addition Tustain Motors’ new EV-ready East Lothian car dealership.
Tustain Motors’ new dealership is one of the first new sites to roll-out MG Motor UK’s newly-established hybrid and electric vehicle (EV) standards to support future growth of zero-emissions vehicles ahead of the arrival of its new zero-emission ZS Electric SUV.
The new dealership, on Hopetoun Drive, Haddington, East Lothian, features a spacious six-car showroom, seven-bay servicing garage with MOT facilities and takes the MG network to 90 sites as the brand targets a 120 sites by the end of 2020.
Brian Baxter, Tustain Motors’ managing director, said: “MG is a brand on the move and customer research in our region shows that there is still a strong affinity with the manufacturer and buyers are drawn to the personalised customer service we offer, coupled with the true value-for-money of the products including the renowned seven-year warranty.
“Partnering with the MG brand represents a strategic long-term investment for our business and this is just the start of a new journey.
“We are looking forward to contributing to the future success as MG continues to build upon its attractive brand and product offering.”
Mark Hallam, network development manager at MG Motor UK, said: “I’m delighted that we now have Tustain Motors on board with us, they have superb facilities and I was really impressed with the enthusiasm and professionalism from their team when I met them recently on our brand induction day.
“With the strength of their overall operation and well-deserved reputation in the local area they’ll be a real asset to MG and help us to continue driving our growth and maintaining our position as the UK’s fastest growing dealer network.
“The real strength of our offer is underpinned by the value-for-money package on all the cars we bring to market and I can tell that the Tustain team will know how to present this to their current customers and to new prospects too.”
Hallam said that he believes MG’s new range of hybrid and electric vehicles will offer a “truly compelling proposition for both customers and dealers”.
He added: “It is so important that our network is properly prepared to sell and maintain these cars, therefore we have invested heavily in training and in the analysis of their skills and facilities to ensure they are future proofed and primed to take advantage of a genuinely exciting opportunity.”
