MG franchise dealer network in UK is expanding fast

8th November 2007 Print
NAC MG (UK) Ltd has continued to see a high level of demand by retailers wishing to join its new network. Over the past few months, MG has invited applications from businesses keen to become franchised retailers, and the huge response signals a very encouraging future for the eagerly-awaited new MG TF LE 500 sportscar.

Over 100 dealers throughout the UK have expressed interest to become a franchise dealer, with more than 40 having signed letters of intent. The proposed network will provide customers with nationwide coverage from Penzance in Cornwall to Stirling in Scotland. Many of the dealers already boast extensive knowledge of the brand, gained over many years as part of the former MG Rover network, whilst applications have also been received from dealers currently retailing a broad portfolio of brands.

“We are hugely encouraged by the response,” says Stephen Cox, Franchising Manager at NAC MG (UK) Ltd. “There is still a huge interest in the MG brand, and the fact that dealers believe our products will sit well alongside other premium brands speaks volumes.”

New locations are constantly being sought and evaluated, and it is planned that the network will be 50-strong for the commercial launch of the TF LE 500 model in the New Year.

“We have experienced a constant request for applications to join our network,” continues Cox. “There is clear confidence in MG’s future, and dealers seem to want to be a part of a new success story and maintain an association with one of the UK’s most historic car brands.”
