A total of 1,078 MGs were sold in June, an increase of 24% on the same month last year, ending a first half of the year that saw MG record an overall growth in UK sales compared to the same period in 2018.
MG plan to expand their dealer network to 120 over the next 18 months as they strive to meet the demand from UK car buyers.
