Local MG dealership, Pinkstones MG, are offering £8,000 off a new MG electric car as people are encouraged to join the electric revolution.
You may have seen the news last week that the UK will ban new petrol and diesel cars, by 2030; 5 years earlier than a date previously announced. Some hybrids will still be allowed beyond this date, depending on their performance, but it’s clear that the UK is making a commitment towards electric and hydrogen fuel cell-powered vehicles. This is all part of the ‘green industrial revolution’, to tackle climate change.
Dr Ben Lane, co-founder of Zap-Map.com, which shows all the electrical charging points in the UK and enables easy route-planning, said that bringing the ban on the sale of new diesel and petrol cars forward to 2030 was “great news for the emerging electric car sector”.
He added: “While many car brands have yet to ramp up their EV production plans, a 2030 target date will focus minds and bring more investment into the EV industry which will benefit the next generation of UK drivers as well as the environment.”
One brand which offers a choice of affordable and practical electric cars for the family is MG, all with a 7 year warranty and high specification as standard:
- All New MG5 EV is the UK’s first fully-electric Estate, offering 214 miles of electric range*, and up to 1,456 litres of boot capacity.
- MG ZS EV is the 5-star Euro NCAP rated electric SUV available with 163 miles of electric range*. It also includes the MG Pilot Suite of Driver Assistance Systems, as well as an 8″ colour touchscreen, Apple CarPlayTM, Android AutoTM, Satellite Navigation, and a Rear Parking Camera available on the Exclusive trim, and more. Also unique to the Exclusive trim is the stunning Panoramic Sky Roof, providing a more light and airy feel to the interior.
- MG HS Plug-in is MG’s first Plug-in Hybrid car combining the petrol car’s 1.5 litre turbocharged engine with a 90kW electric motor offering 32 miles of EV only range*. As with MG ZS EV, MG HS Plug-In comes as standard with MG Pilot, but features the larger 10.1″ colour touchscreen, with Apple CarPlayTM, Android AutoTM, Satellite Navigation, and a 360 Parking Camera. Opt for the Exclusive trim and you will also benefit from Power Tailgate and the Panoramic Sky Roof.*Electric range on the WLTP Combined Cycle from a single charge.
The local MG dealer to Stone is Pinkstones MG, on Newcastle Road, Stoke on Trent.
“We’ve seen a surge of demand in electric cars since the beginning of this year, and the ZS EV is our most popular car,” says Richard Crookes, General Manager of Pinkstones MG. “We’re proud to offer quality, fun to drive, practical EV cars locally, and we’re able to offer extended test drives, from an hour all the way up to 24hrs, to help people to see how an MG EV can fit in their daily lives.”
“We’ve experienced demand so high, that to prevent any extended delivery times for customers, we’ve purchased a range of brand new electric cars in a range of specifications and colours, to offer immediate delivery. The driving experience is exhilarating; the instant electric torque and the handling is superb. Even if you’re not ready to buy, we recommend enjoying a test drive when you can, just to experience electric driving.”
As a COVID-19 Safe business, there are social distancing procedures, complimentary PPE and sanitiser, and cars are all thoroughly sanitised between test drives. The test drive can also be done safely from your home – just ask Pinkstones MG for details on 01782 711661 You can now even send them a WhatsApp message to their landline number.
The Pinkstones MG dealership will re-open for test drives on 2nd December 2020, and booking early is recommended, especially if you’re keen to try the extended test drives of up to 24hrs.
Have a petrol or diesel car? Part-exchange it for an electric MG before 31st December 2020 to benefit from an £8,000 saving off the price, in addition to the value of your part-exchange. When your new car is ready, you can either collect it from the dealership or arrange for a home delivery. Visit pinkstones.mg.co.uk/offers-finance for the offer details.
