Bangkok--20 Apr--Total Quality PR

MG Sales (Thailand) announced its success at the 38th Bangkok International Motor Show with eighth highest bookings overall led by MG GS 1.5 Turbo sport SUV which also won Car of the Year in the under 1.6-litre petrol multi-purpose vehicle category. This is followed closely with orders for the MG3 subcompact which once again received great interest from younger clientele.

MG revealed the vehicle orders at the 38th Bangkok International Motor Show totaled 1,125 units which include 563 MG3s, 169 MG5 subcompact sedans, 78 MG6 premium mid-size sedans and 315 MG GS 1.5 and 2.0 Turbo. Deliveries will commence this coming May.

Mr. Pongsak Lertrudeewattanawong, Vice President of MG Sales (Thailand), stated, "MG sees the car market is gradually recuperating and improving, and in response to that we have many great quality vehicles to offer to the consumers. The introduction of our MG GS 1.5 Turbo has been successful, while the MG3 is still a popular city car with number one unit sales. All MG vehicles aim to break new grounds with state-of-the-art technology, superior performances, comprehensive equipment and assuring after-sales services."

The MG GS 1.5 Turbo garnered the most request for test drives among all MG vehicles at the Motor Show this year. Not surprising since it recently won the Car of the year Award in the under 1,600cc multi-purpose vehicle category from Grand Prix International PCL, the organizer of the Bangkok International Motor Show.

Mr. Pongsak added, "The good number of customer responses and the award reflect the great quality of MG vehicles. We do not rest here, for we are working hard to maintain this momentum for sustainable growth by growing the dealership network to 90 by the end of this year. We also aim to step the standards of pre and after-sales services for excellent MG brand experience." He also revealed the 2017 first quarter overall sales figure which totaled 2,653 units – a huge 65% hike from the previous year. The breakdown by model is 1,620 MG3 – up 49% YoY; 437 MG GS; 192 MG6 – up 100% YoY and 404 units of MG5.

MG customers can expect the best quality products and services thanks to Passion Service, the new service concept offered to all MG customers. What set Passion Service apart are the mobile scheduled maintenance service and class-leading 4-years/ 120,000 km warranty. All new MG vehicles are backed by 24-hour nationwide roadside assistance, 24-hour call centre which act as your personal concierge and complimentary loan car should your MG vehicle require more than 4 days at the service centre.
