The end of January signalled the annual MG Motor UK’s Dealer Conference and Awards, with more than 130 representatives from across the country attending the ceremony in Birmingham. And the top award of the night, 2018 Dealer of the Year, was awarded to Nathaniel Cars! We are extremely proud of the hard work and dedication of our team, which has led to this award. And we could not be happier to have won it for the past 3 years in a row. We were also presented with the Technical Management award, and again are extremely proud of the hard work that has led to this award.
2018 was a great year for MG Motor UK, making it the fastest-growing car manufacturer in the UK, with record sales in the biggest year ever. Over the year, MG achieved a number of sales records, including an annual sales total of 9,049 registrations (an increase of 104% from the previous year). Plus, the MG dealer network has seen rapid growth – with 18 new dealer partners joining the MG family.
The Dealer Conference was also the stage for the official unveiling of the first battery electric car from MG, which is set to launch in September 2019. We also discussed Momentum & Growth – the sales plan which will drive MG to further success over the coming years, hopefully trebling our sales volume, as well as the aftersales customer retention programme – an initiative to generate increased service profitability.
Daniel Gregorious, Head of Sales and Marketing at MG Motor UK, said: “after an incredible 2018, during which we doubled our sales volume, it was a huge privilege to recognize the dealerships and people who made it possible.” He then noted that “2019 will be another very exciting year for MG, as we continue to expand our dealer network and launch some brilliant new products including our very first battery electric vehicle, the MG ZS electric SUV.” We at Nathaniel Cars are proud to be a part of the MG network, and are excited to see what’s to come over the next year.
Nathan Griffiths, Sales and Marketing Manager on winning the award for the third year in a row, "The team at Nathaniel MG are very proud to have won such a great award and to win it 3 years in a row, all credit goes to the entire Nathaniel Family, the staff and customers who made it all possible. In addition, the great long term partnership with MG Motor UK allows us to offer great products and services to our customers. With new models coming out in 2019 and beyond, it is indeed going to be many more exciting years to come."
