    Note the relative hugeness of London with Birmingham, Coventry, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Bradford, Wakefield, Newcastle, Sunderland, Leicester, Nottingham, Bristol, Plymouth, Brighton, Edinburgh and Glasgow fitting (by population) merely into the Greater London Boroughs!

    I am mightily impressed by the detail of your analysis, Pat. I couldn't quite follow your original post but the map makes sense. Given that MG are currently selling in similar numbers to SangYoung and Subaru how do these companies dealer numbers compare, particularly in the London area?

    Without doing any clever analysis, their dealers trounce MG's network in the London area because MG only has a single dealer in an out-of-the-way backwater which is nevertheless also a Ssangyong dealer!

    Ssangyong appear to have around five dealers in the London area (a little hard to tell, as the map includes service only centres and appears to locate Croydon on Shepherd's Bush) and around 80 in total (I haven't counted them)

    http://www.ssangyonggb.co.uk/dealers

    Subaru "only" has two dealers inside the M25 but several outside it in a way that MG has not really achieved - and only around 65 in total! (Several of them, e.g. Normandy, Barnes of Maidstone, and Maple are dual franchises with MG)

    Thanks for the response Pat. Hopefully the GS will entice a few more dealers in the London area to join MG!

    So net growth has not been spectacular - even allowing for several non-active addresses on the 2016 list we're talking about only a dozen total more net, though as registrations are up 33%, cars sold per dealer must have improved.

    Arnold Clark becoming a dealer (no.53) has opened a new sales route via pre-reg cars to 200(?) branches, we'll just have to see how that goes.

    Despite one new dealer each for West Yorkshire and for the London area those two areas still have millions of potential customers with no easy-to-reach local dealer, and in the Manchester/Liverpool area you have to be to the north of it.

    It took me so long to construct that map but here's a map of the UK constitituencies. As at January 2017 they say the UK constituencies over-represent the North and Scotland (each one is supposed to have the same number of voters but in the North and Scotland there are several constituencies with far fewer) but even so, here again you can see the relative importance of London.
