I'm not going to make a guess this month because of the somewhat volatile situation. What will be really interesting for the next few months will be how MG sales compare to those of the other manufacturers.
My family are keeping me in semi-isolation because I am supposedly over the magic age whereby I am more liable to be affected by covid19.
Hope all of you forumites keep safe and well,
All the best...Chris.

My guess for March is 2,725. I also think a full month would would have been nearer to 4,000.

I think I'm going to pause the game as the situation is getting worse as we go along. Just reading the latest MGE, at the beginning of the month we were more concerned about supply than demand, and being cooped up in our houses for weeks on end with all the pubs shut would have been unthinkable.
The numbers are released on Monday.

Although MG is up spectacularly in a market which fell 44%, the huge sales for boom reg change month (until shutdown) mean that if all the competition fell 50-60% MG overtook only Mitsubishi.

as above, no competition this month, we'll wait until the embargo is lifted. In Germany, car showrooms are now open again.

Indeed, what a month, this could be the last month that SsangYong ties with MG (45!) but MG outsold Renault and Honda as well as all the usual suspects except Fiat.. There again, top seller was Vauxhall (479) and Jaguar (396) outsold Ford (306). A sad state of affairs for our country but 45 cars sold is still more than four times better than MG Motor's worst month when only 11 TFs were registered!

In this strange month, for the first time five BEVs were registered for every four diesels. In this "lockdown" traffic you can smell the diesels a mile off!
