Duna Motors to Begin Selling MG Vehicles in 22 Dealerships
Duna Motors Disztribúció Kft, the Hungarian importer of the iconic British car brand Morris Garages, announced that it will officially start selling MG branded vehicles in Hungary with a nationwide network of 22 dealerships.
The dealerships, which will begin selling the brand simultaneously on September 17, will host an open weekend where visitors will be given the opportunity to test drive the MG models, which have been completely redesigned in recent years, and get to know them in person.
Sales in Hungary will start with six versions of two models, the combustion engine fitted MG ZS and the plug-in hybrid MG EHS. MG will further expand its Hungarian model range with the addition of an electric product line in the first quarter of 2023.
"Despite the current turbulent economic environment, we believe that the MG brand will be successful in Hungary," said Zoltán Markó, MG's brand director in Hungary. "This is confirmed for us by the global sales figures and the brand's growing popularity in Western Europe, as well as by the fact that we have a long track record of well-established, experienced dealerships joining our network."
"We had originally planned to launch with 15 dealerships in the country, but more and more dealerships have indicated their intention to join, so it is a source of great pride that we are now able to open 22 sales and service centers nationwide. The positive attitude of our partners has further confirmed that MG cars have a place in the Hungarian car market," he adds.
Duna Autó Group started negotiations for distribution rights with China's largest vehicle manufacturer, SAIC Motor Corporation, nearly one and a half years ago. The negotiations were led from the beginning by the group's owner-director, Péter Ormos, and as a result, the group announced at the end of March 2022 that its company, Duna Motors Disztribúció Kft., had won the Hungarian import rights for the brand with British roots.
