MG's sales in Europe last year overtook those in China, home of parent company SAIC, as the former British brand continues to lure more customers to its value-priced range of electric and combustion-powered cars.
Last year MG sold 113,917 cars in Europe, twice as many as in 2021, figures from market researcher Dataforce show. In contrast, the brand's sales last year in China were 110,101, according to figures from sales aggregator Bestsellingcarsblog.com.
The momentum has continued into 2023, with sales in Europe at 20,736, up 143 percent, according to Dataforce. The brand is now the 23rd largest in Europe by unit sales, moving ahead of Jeep, Cupra, Porsche, Land Rover and Honda.
