My thread about the MG3 posed the question as to whether it had passed its peak sales. January's severely disappointing figures suggest that this may well be the case and it is time for MG to raise its game and provide the new engines that MG's dealers are clamouring for.
Or maybe a generous interpretation is that the pattern of registrations may comprise more peaks and troughs now that MG has retrenched from its commitment to UK assembly in favour of direct imports from China...which I assume don't arrive monthly?
A useful company to benchmark MG against is SsangYSsangYong. Some months MG is ahead of it, other months, SsangYong is ahead.
January 2017 MG 205, SsangYong: 298
December 2016 MG 367, SsangYong: 174
2016 Year to Date: MG 4,192 SsangYong: 4,444
