MG Philippines reports all-time high sales in 2021 with 85% year-on-year growth

MG ZS Crossover SUV and MG 5 subcompact sedan account for lion’s share of 6,343 unit sales in 2021

MG Philippines announced today that it reached an all-time high sales milestone in 2021 despite the auto industry continuing its struggles with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Through its local distributor The Covenant Car Company, Inc. (TCCI), MG Philippines reported that its dealership network sold 6,343 units last year, representing an 85% increase against the same period in 2020.

It was also the brand’s best sales result after its relaunch three years ago. MG Philippines posting over 2,000 unit sales in the fourth quarter also marked its strongest sales quarter in 2021.

As expected, MG Philippines drew big numbers from its two best-selling models: the MG 5 Sedan which has strongly challenged its well-established rivals in the local subcompact sedan category for its best-in-class features, exterior size, cabin and luggage space, and driving dynamics; and the highly popular, value-laden ZS Crossover SUV.

From January to December 2021, total sales of the MG 5 sedan are recorded at 2,013 units, while 4,158 units of the ZS Crossover SUV were sold over the same period. Compared to their YTD sales figures in 2020, both reflect marked increases at 85% and 117% for the MG 5 and ZS, respectively.

“MG Philippines entered 2021with optimism and excitement, fueled by the strong reception of the market and the confidence of our dealer network for the MG brand and its model offers. We approached 2021 confident that MG, with its strong British heritage and superior product portfolio, would resonate with an even wider Filipino audience considering the increasing mobility requirements brought about by the current circumstances,” says Atty. Alberto B. Arcilla, President and CEO of The Covenant Car Company, Inc. (TCCCI,) the official distributor of MG in the Philippines.

Atty. Arcilla adds: “MG Philippines’ year-on-year sales performance has significantly grown by 85% from 2020, as TCCCI engaged the market with the modern vehicle designs, advanced features, driver and passenger benefits, and an enjoyable overall ownership experience which is all part of the MG brand promise. Our achievements in 2021 are a testament to the collective efforts of our principals at SMIL, and the invaluable guidance of our Board, executed with determination by the Management Team and the stewards of TCCCI-MG Philippines.” 

“TCCCI further acknowledges the support, trust, and commitment of our dealer partners amidst the very challenging market dynamics and the confidence instilled in MG by our esteemed stakeholders—our clients, bank partners, media partners, and the general motoring public, have been invaluable factors for the growth of MG,” says Atty. Arcilla.

In 2021, MG Philippines introduced the turbocharged MG ZST, adding a new and exciting variant to the existing roster of the best-selling MG ZS model line (composed of the Alpha AT, Style AT, and Core MT variants.) 

In a press statement, MG Philippines said that it will continue to adapt and grow while offering exciting new models and more value-added aftersales services, with the continuous expansion of the brand’s nationwide dealership network so that more Filipinos can get easy access to their own MG.
