OK. Reminds me a bit of the people I knew who were having money trouble so he bought her a new car to cheer them up!

OK, I expect that wraps it up for this month. The "outlying" guess is me, around a half or less what everyone else said. Despite the reg change there seem to have been many new registrations this weekend.

MG is the highest-rising brand in the month (52%) but both Dacia (14%) and Fiat (22%) were also up in August. Suzuki's sales are falling (-33%) but its monthly sales are quite a bit higher than MG and although MG was catching it the Hungarian Indians from Japan now seem to be pulling away again.

For every ten diesels registered, four BEVs hit the road last month!

"Other" sales have halved so it has been a disastrous month for Tesla.

Thanks for all the info. Quite a few manufacturers are only slightly ahead of MG. Given that MG's range is so restricted, it's good going. That electric sports car might make a huge difference!
Another point is that for obvious reasons, people (e.g. my wife) are now very dubious about buying Chinese stuff. It's pretty hard to avoid doing that in general, but easy when it comes to buying one's next car.

SEPTEMBER 2020 So, last weekend of potentially biggest month of the year.All manufacturers pushing with big discounts, it seems.

MG5 EV and MG HS PHEV launched during the month. Now we have over 110 dealers there could be a few demonstrators registered in September!

August 2020 1,010 (one of the expected lowest months - I've just noticed that an expected highest month, September 2018, was the exact same!). September 2019 1,363.

I’ll go for 2499 please 😊.
I wish the ZS had softer suspension, more Like the Captur. It’s pretty near perfect for our roads. If not for sporty driving definitely for a nice comfy ride.
