The growing popularity of the brand has been replicated over the first six months of 2021. MG’s biggest market in the region continues to be Saudi Arabia, where the brand sold 12,200 units in the first half of 2021.

The Middle East’s ‘Best Sub-compact Sedan’ for 2020, the MG5 and the new 2021 MG ZS contributed to a solid 55% of the overall sales for MG especially during the month of Ramadan. 
 
The MG ZS ranked 2nd in its segment with 4,635 units sold and an overall contribution of 23%to the brand’s overall sales. In parallel, buyers took a special liking to the MG 5 with 6,800 units sold. The people’s favourite sedan registered growth of 88% compared to 2020.
