Time 9:43 am, November 29, 2019

MG MOTOR UK has reached a significant milestone in its Momentum & Growth mid-term plan by opening its 100th UK dealership: Stoneacre Doncaster.

The new showroom increases the brand’s footprint in the region and becomes Stoneacre Motor Group’s fourth MG site.

Stoneacre Doncaster is one of three MG sites opened by the company in recent months with outlets in Derby and Rochdale also now live.

Philip Wade, franchise and development director for Stoneacre Motor Group, said: ‘We opened our first MG site in Hyde at the start of the year and the customer response to the brand has been incredibly exciting.

‘MG is a brand on the move and the introduction of the ZS EV and the flagship all-new MG HS to complement MG3 and ZS has brought a whole new dimension to the market with more to come in the future.

‘Our business operates 23 separate franchise car brands and in a short space of time, we have forged a really close relationship with the MG brand. We are proud to carry the MG name and look forward to building upon this year’s successes in 2020 and beyond.’

Daniel Gregorious, head of sales and marketing at MG Motor UK, said: ‘Reaching 100 dealer sites is a landmark for MG and I’m delighted that Stoneacre’s fantastic site in Doncaster is the milestone dealership.

‘Our Momentum & Growth mid-term plan is on track to deliver a network of 120 sites selling twice as many cars, and Stoneacre will play a big role in helping us to deliver that.’

Stoneacre Doncaster features a spacious six-car showroom along with a pre-owned forecourt with space for up to 100 cars, while the service workshop boasts eight well-equipped bays.

All Stoneacre MG sites benefit from the latest charging infrastructure for MG ZS EV customers and technicians are trained to service and maintain the manufacturer’s growing range of petrol and electric cars.
