MG commences contract hire
27 April 2012
Birmingham airport's management team will run a fleet of MG6s.
MG has launched a contract hire scheme called MG Lease, which will be offered through its UK dealer network. The scheme is driven by ALD Automotive, but a MG spokesman said the brand would also be "very happy" to work with other leasing companies.
Initially MG6 GT fastback S and SE models will be available under the scheme. Within a few months MG6 GT TSE models and MG6 Magnettes will be added up to a year old and with a maximum of 15,000 miles.
Richard Bourton, MG Motor UK's regional operations manager in charge of MG Lease, said: "There is a huge potential for the MG6 to be marketed to the user chooser company drivers who want to be seen to be driving something different from their colleagues.
He added: "The distinctive MG6 will certainly stand out from the crowd in the company car park which is often dominated by Mondeo and Insignia models. I think the MG will have big appeal."
Bourton continued: "This is our first venture into the fleet business and all the signs are that it will be a great success, given the interest we have already seen.
"We've had lots of business people asking about contract hire and now we can offer them a great deal. The MG6, with its enormous boot and spacious cabin, offers business people so much more than its competitors."
A three-year 30,000-mile contract hire agreement on an MG6 GT fastback in S trim, including metallic paint, has a first payment of £734.97 plus VAT and 35 monthly payments of £249.99 plus VAT.
