Just three years after taking over the MG brand, The Covenant Car Company, Inc. (TCCCI)-MG Philippines reached its highest ever sales mark with 6,343 units sold last year.
This stellar 85 percent sales growth is courtesy of over 2,000 units posted during the last three months of 2021, its strongest ever quarterly performance. With this sales achievement amid the still raging pandemic, MG Philippines broke into the list of top industry performers in 2021. In fact, MG’s numbers are good enough to rank them ninth if compared to the 2021 sales report of the Philippine Automotive Dealers Association.
The PADA report showed Toyota (129,667), Mitsubishi (38,436), Ford (20,004), Nissan (19,603), Suzuki (19,391), Isuzu (14,424), Honda (12,680), Hyundai (9,997), Geely (6,272) and Kia (3,748) in the Top 10.
“MG Philippines entered 2021 with optimism and excitement, fuelled 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,” said Atty. Alberto B. Arcilla, President and CEO of TCCCI, the official distributor of the MG brand in the Philippines.
Driving sales for MG Philippines are its two best-selling models: the ZS Crossover SUV that sold 4,158 units and MG 5 Sedan that sold 2,013 units. Compared to their YTD sales figures in 2020, both reflected marked increases at 117 percent for the ZS and 85 percent for the MG 5. Collective efforts “MG Philippines’ year-on-year sales performance has significantly grown by 85 percent 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,” said Atty. Arcilla.
He added: “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.”
Atty. Arcilla informed that MG Philippines introduced last year the turbocharged MG ZST, adding a new and exciting variant to the existing roster of the best-selling MG ZS model line that include the Alpha AT, Style AT, and Core MT variants.
This year, Atty. Arcilla assured to expect MG Philippines to continue to adapt and grow while offering exciting new models and more value-added aftersales services. He added that with the continuous expansion of the brand’s nationwide dealership network, more Filipinos can get easy access to their own MG. Two dynamic products
