Morgan is Britain's Favourite Car Maker

Morgan has been active for no fewer than 101 years but no-one would describe this dyed-in-the-wool company as a stick-in-the-mud. The results of a poll on MSN Cars suggest quite the reverse, placing Morgan in the enviable position of being Britain’s favourite British-owned car manufacturer.

The 18,000 pollsters involved awarded Morgan a whopping 31 per cent of the vote, giving them a 12-point lead over nearest rival Noble. Caterham, and another venerable make, Bristol Cars, shared equal third place with 13 per cent apiece.

Morgan MD, Charles Morgan was delighted, saying, “This is brilliant news and Morgan is very proud to be voted best British-owned sports car maker.” He added, “Come and see us in Malvern, Worcestershire, making the cars. It’s a great day out.”

“I’m very pleased to see Morgan do so well in our poll,” says Tom Evans, content manager of MSN Cars. “The firm makes some wonderful cars with incredible attention to detail and quality, and I’m not surprised that the firm is so well regarded by the British public. Britain remains one of Europe’s largest car-making nations, but many of its larger car producers are foreign owned. This is not the case with some of our smaller manufacturers, many of which are jewels of the industry.”
