Vertu Motors has opened a new  MG franchised dealership in Scotland following a £5million investment in a multi-franchise Macklin Motors site.

Macklin MG Edinburgh Newbridge will carry the full range of new and used MG cars.  It will also offer on-site EV charging, specialist advice to Motability customers, vehicle servicing and full aftersales support.

The site has a 16-bay service area and has created 14 new jobs, along with two apprenticeships.

MG Motor Commercial Director, Guy Pigounakis, added: “We are thrilled to once again partner with Vertu Motors plc as we develop our relationship and further our growth in Scotland. EV registrations in Scotland grew by over 75% last year. We’re well-positioned to help Scottish motorists further their uptake of electric cars with a great value, high quality range of plug-in vehicles, alongside a line-up of excellent petrol models.”

Joe McCauley (left), General Manager at Macklin Motors Edinburgh Newbridge, said: “Prior to the seven-month long build programme, the location was an undeveloped plot overlooking the M9 motorway. Now it is a state-of-the-art workplace we can all be proud of and a welcoming modern space for customers.

“Moving into our new home is a fantastic way to begin 2022. I’m looking forward to working with colleagues to welcome customers and show them everything we have on offer.”

This opening follows over 40 new dealers joining the brand in the past 12 months.
