Just two and a half years since MG in its new guise launched in Ireland, in the middle of a pandemic without a single dealer able to open their doors, they are buoyed up by their latest sales results released by the Society of the Irish Motor Industry (SIMI) at the end of July.

MG registered 725 cars in July alone, boosting year-to-date sales to 1,243 cars and securing the position as the fifth-highest selling electric car manufacturer in Ireland for 2023. The MG4 EV is also the best-selling electric car of July.

This achievement is quite remarkable and has solidified MG’s position as a serious player in Ireland’s electric vehicle market. Its market share in the electric car segment has now reached an impressive 6.2% giving the fledgling brand real cause for celebration.

Furthermore, for the month of July, the MG4 EV has secured the position as the top-selling new electric car in this country. Since its launch last year, the multi-award-winning model has proven a popular choice among private customers and taxi operators with over 800 units delivered for this model this year.

“We had high aspirations for the 232 plate this year and we are absolutely delighted with the remarkable success we have achieved,” said Andrew Johnson at MG Motor Ireland. “To be positioned as one of the top five EV brands in the country in just two and a half years is a remarkable accomplishment, reflecting the exceptional quality and excellent value for money provided by our range.”

We can expect further growth for the MG4 line-up with the introduction of a new extended-range model and the new MG4 EV XPOWER. The XPOWER model – MG’s most powerful production car yet – will feature a dual motor powertrain delivering 435PS and up to 600Nm of torque, firmly positioning the latest MG4 model alongside the most potent high-performance hatchbacks on the market.

Irish pricing and specifications will be announced later this year. MG Motor Ireland currently offers four models the MG4 EV, MG5 EV, MG ZS EV and MG HS PHEV, all of which are available for immediate delivery and supported by MG’s 7-year warranty and nationwide dealership network.
