MG3 and MG6 split in 2014:

MG3 1738
MG6 535
MG total 2273.
Why it's 53 cars less then official numbers (2326), some factory test mules like MG350?

Jan & Feb data i've got from www.bestsellingcarsblog.com and full 2014 numbers got privately from the owner of this page.

The MG6 sales are much higher than we realised. We assumed 10% but this is more like 25%, higher in some months. That would mean about 160 sold in March.

I have heard from a reliable source that this months figures included 100 cars for a rental firm.

I dont know what the ratio of 3/6s was though.

Ditto that would be very nice to believe here is hoping to another decent sales figure for this month then.

Great thread chaps, and it makes very interesting reading... love the graphs lol!

Good to see the brand growing too with positive reviews for the revised 6 and the 3 in the driver power top 10 too! Hopefully when the 4x4 is added to the range this will strengthen the brand further getting the recognition it deserves.

Hopefully If I can find the right car I'll be adding to those figures with the purchase of a 3.

I dont want this to be a negative post, and i am sure some will push that, but in March, in China, out of Roewe and MG, there was only ONE car in the Chinese top 100, and that was the Roewe 350 at just under 5,000 units....

I really hope that the two brands are not competing with each other to the detriment of the other, and if the sales are dropping off this much, what hope have we for a full Europe wide roll out.

For the full year 2014 - that same model achieved sales of just shy of 100,000 and was at number 41, the MG3 appeared in the best seller list for the year at number 110 with 27,864 sold, no other cars from the two brands appeared in the top 120 best sellers for 2014 - Sorry if you already knew this, but i thought it was a bit of info that was of interest.

Updated with Aprils 308 registrations.

So for the first quarter of 2015 they have averaged at 292 registrations per month.

Good, solid growth.

Just worked out that since the MG6 was released in April 2011 - 5121 new MGs have been registered.

Your post isn't negative at all IMO - just the facts.

In a way, it's not a bad thing that the Roewe and MG brands are not doing that well in China because it will ensure SAIC remain focused on taking product-led action. This will be a good thing for the UK and European market because the cars that are doing well in China are, increasingly, western in origin.

SAIC just need to up the pace. They are a huge company with vast financial resources and it is inexcusable to be taking so long to develop and launch cars into the market. The MG6 for example, first surfaced in 2008/9, was not launched until 2011 in the UK and it took another 4 years to address some of the horrible quality issues. That car is now over 7 years old publicly, and doubtless over 10 years old underneath. Same with the MG3 albeit a much more successful effort IMO. Shame about the engines which I think is seriously hampering its chances in the UK.

Now we have the GS, a great looking car, very contemporary and certain to be a hit if they can market it and have a dealer network wide enough to sell it. However, late 2016 is when it is slated to arrive here, this is utter madness.

I realise they probably want to ensure the network is big enough to sell it, however, MG dealers are small and they cannot sell enough cars right now to make it sustainable - can they hang on for another 18 months?

Anyway, back to the point - April sales are really strong - they could've done the usual nosedive following the March high and they held very strong. I'm impressed with the consistency of sales which is revealing an underlying strengthening of the brand in the public consciousness.

Updated - a bit late this time cos I forgot to do it.

A slight drop off in sales but with the new '6 starting to reach customers this month Im hoping it will at least bolster the sales.

Nearly 1500 registrations in 5 months (287 p/m) is very good though. Especially for those that have been following the sales and registrations figures from back in the '7-9 a month' days.

Updated again.

MG sold/registered 237 cars in July 15 compared to 203 last year. That is a 16.75% growth.

Total for the year so far is 1907 to 1407 for the same time last year - a growth of 500 cars.

Subaru only registered 167 cars in July but Alfa Romeo registered 306 - MG sits between these 2 'household name' brands in the monthly registrations chart.

How many dealers do Subaru and Alfa have, compared to MG, out of interest?

They seem to have settled into reasonable number now without really trying which is great - can't help but think the MG3 is just waiting to explode (relatively of course) once they sort the engine out.

Hopefully they'll announce something soon. The package seems to try to appeal to young drivers but the engine will just put them off... for now...

Subarus have a range of models available and a choice of engines.

You have only linked to the BRZ which, according to many on this forum, should be the halo model that sells all of the more 'ordinary' cars in the range?!

I don't know how many dealerships they have though.

Subaru have more or less abandoned the UK market though.
Much like MG they are here but aren't the primary focus. The US appears to be thier main focus and I think they're kicking ass over there. 540k of thier 950k worlwide sales are from there, with 41 months of sucessive growth. Thier in the top 10 over there now.

Hows MG doing in China? Thats where we need them to do well if we want them to come over here with more gutso
