mgmotorlogoMG has exclusively revealed to Car Dealer the 10 most important towns and cities it wants to find new dealers for.

The UK car manufacturer, which was relaunched in 2008 with the backing of Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation, wants to establish showrooms in the following eight locations in England: Birmingham, Derby, Leeds, Liverpool, Nottingham, Northampton, Swindon and South London.

The firm, which has recently launched a new range of models that have been designed and engineered at its 69-acre site in Longbridge, Birmingham, also wants to establish outlets in Glasgow and Edinburgh.

MG’s list of potential dealership locations also includes more than 20 medium-priority locations, including Brighton, Exeter and Guildford in the south of England, and Blackpool, Burnley and Carlisle further north.

And at the bottom of the list are six low-priority spots, including in England, Barnstaple; in Wales, Swansea; and in Scotland, Inverness.

MG recently opened a new sales centre onsite at the famous ‘Elephant House’ at Longbridge. Customers are able to test-drive vehicles from the new MG6 range there and can also buy vehicle from the home of MG.
