Not Quite Over for Rover?

Wednesday July 12, 2006

Seems as though that may be the case, at least for the brand MG, as the Chinese automaker Nanjing Automobile Corp. – the new owner of MG – announces the formation of a new MG Motors, which will sell vehicles in Europe and America. Nanjing executives are expected to provide detailed plans for MG at the British International Motor Show in London July 17.

If all goes according to plan, sales would begin in 2007 for Europe and the lineup would consist of three sedans (formerly ZR, ZS and ZT) as well as a roadster and a coupe roadster and (formerly TF). While in America, sales would begin sometime late in 2008 and the lineup would initially consist of the TF, followed by two sedans.

Production of the new MG vehicles would take place in Nanjing, China; Longbridge, England; and Ardmore, Oklahoma. However, reports say an official and probably more detailed announcement about US production should come later today.
