MG retains its position as the UK’s fastest growing car brand​

​MG Motor UK has maintained its position as the fastest growing car brand in the UK, selling 38,312 cars in the first nine months of the year.

New figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) show MG’s market share has increased by 82% year on year, with September 2022 sales marking a 61% increase over the previous September.

Award-winning models such as the MG ZS EV and MG5 EV continue to be hugely popular with customers, as part of MG’s broad range of sporty, exciting and affordable cars which reflect its Get More philosophy.

MG Motor UK’s Commercial Director, Guy Pigounakis, said: “The latest SMMT figures are extremely positive, reflecting the incredible growth we’ve achieved within the last 12 months. I have no doubt our new MG4 and MG5 models will be immensely popular with customers looking to make the switch to electric as we head towards 2023.”

MG ZS EV named ‘Best Family Electric Car’ at 2023 Carbuyer Awards

With the MG ZS EV being awarded the "best family electric car" for 2023 at the yearly Carbuyer Best Car Awards, MG Motor UK is celebrating yet another victory.

The ZS EV was highly recommended by Carbuyer's expert team of highly qualified writers and road testers because its "electric powertrain and a battery pack giving improved performance, much reduced running costs, and an overall nicer driving experience."

The ZS EV Long Range has a starting price of £29,495 and has a WLTP range of up to 273 miles. A 50kW public rapid charger can charge it to 80% in just over an hour, and it comes with a thorough seven-year warranty.

Last year, Carbuyer’s sister publication and leading electric vehicle title DrivingElectric recognised the ZS EV as winner of its ‘Car of the Year 2022’ category. The compact SUV has also enjoyed wins at several major new car award events throughout 2022.

Richard Ingram, Editor at Carbuyer & DrivingElectric, said: "If there's one thing missing in the new car market it's affordable, capable EVs. But MG has nailed it with the ZS; a practical, efficient and well-equipped electric car with room for the whole family."

The ZS EV sits within MG’s range of electric cars, now joined by the recently launched MG4 EV – an all-new hatchback which promises to set a new benchmark for affordable electric motoring, as well as the new and improved MG5 EV estate expected in November 2022.
