A great start to the year - relatively at least.

This year I'm going to stop tracking Alfa Romeo which has become a high-priced, low-volume brand, and Mitsubishi which has announced its departure from Europe.

Renault, Citroën and MINI are next if MG can beat these manufacturers - and those brands are surely Sales First Division, though not Premier League.

Off we go again, last month of 70 reg and a short month. Showrooms continue to be shut all over the UK.

Feb 2020 883, Jan 2021 1,374.

Midsummer's Day the end of lockdown, is a long way off!

There continues to be a steady stream of new EV registrations and you don't get the feeling that MG have a glut of new cars rusting outdoors (here Rockingham 2021 similar to the airfields of Cortinas in 1975). Rockingham: Ex-racetrack used to store thousands of vehicles

I shall guess at 1,108.

831. gnu's late call among a select group of guessers wins the day, but I am allowing the guess as my number was too high anyway and G0MRL would have won otherwise!

It's turning out to be quite a year. With the market down over a third but MG a fifth or under, not only Fiat are in the rear view mirror, also Dacia and Suzuki - but New Aspirational Competitors Mazda and medium term target Honda are both behind MG already too as are - Renault (Feb month)!

End of March coming up. March is normally one of the two busiest months with the new registration but most UK showrooms have been closed throughout, though I think Wales is coming out of lockdown early and the police are cracking down on any English hairstyles trying to sneak across the border.
The UK-wide EV subsidy was cut, and abolished overnight for all cars over IIRC £40k which has affected Tesla Model 3. All MG EVs still qualify for the reduced amount and I think some dealers are offering a discount equivalent to the cut in the subsidy for the rest of the month.
Things looked very worrying a year ago and I paused the game, but MG sold 2,736 in what was mostly a pre-lockdown boom month. Last month was 831. How many sales were boosted for 21 reg in lockdown? I'll guess 1,108 again , or 60% down on 2020!

I think that a lot of ZS EV registrations are for PHV as it makes kind of sense.

Even ZipCar are getting in on the act and are going to be rolling out MG ZS EV models to their fleet.


Cheers..
