MG Dealer Network In UK To Be Ready To Handle Electric Vehicles06/27/2019
Training, new tools and equipment as well as charging points are required when introducing EVs.
This summer MG is busy gearing up for the launch of the MG ZS EV in UK, which will go on sale in September with customer deliveries from Autumn.
British brand MG (currently part of the Shanghai-based SAIC Motor) decided to implement a set of standards specifically for hybrid and electric vehicles across the entire dealer network.
All of the 92 dealerships will be required to install at least two charging points, as well as train the staff and technicians.
“The MG ZS EV and the brand’s planned hybrid and electric products will use Type 2 and CCS charging connections. The ZS EV in particular can be connected to home chargers, as well as to fast or rapid chargers. Each MG dealership will have a 7kW wall-mounted charging point available in the workshop, as well as a 22kW charge point outside the showroom entrance. Customers can experience and learn more about different charging solutions and their capabilities. In doing so, MG is greatly enhancing the total ownership proposition for electric vehicles.
The standards equip MG’s existing sales staff and technicians with the knowledge to support customers in both the sales and aftersales of the business. Thanks to the introduction of a nationally-recognised Electric Vehicle Awareness training course, dealership staff and technicians are provided with an introduction to of safe working practices, as well as detail on the dangers of working with electric vehicles.”
