    Dealer numbers targets 2014/2015

    Post by patpending on Mon Dec 01, 2014 7:59 am

    Up until at least 30 May 2014 MG Motor UK's official target was to have 80 dealerships by year end 2014:

    "Further new dealer appointments will be announced shortly, as MG plans to have around 80 sales dealerships on board by the end of the year, these will be supported by a further network of MG after sales specialists."

    30 May 2014: http://mg.co.uk/news/2014/05/30/mg-adds-to-rapidly-expanding-dealer-network

    By 6 November this had reduced to 60, though, and those fabled 125 aftersales specialists are nowhere to be seen!

    Guy Jones wrote:"We now have national dealer coverage and will have 60 outlets by the end of the year."

    To my mind they announced "100 at the end of 2015" at the same time as "60 by the end of 2014" though I don't have the link. IIRC they achieved 57.

    Matthew Cheyne has just (May 2015) announced "70 by the end of 2015" which is only a net 10 more than we have now.

    Matthew Cheyne, MG’s Head of Marketing, said:“As our dealer network grows and dealers sell more, we will continue to expand as a company and we are still pushing for at least 70 dealers by year end."

    3rd December and the official list is on 67 with four "zombies" on it which have left the network...
