In fact, the new MG6 has even been primarily developed in the U.K. and will be produced at the former MG Rover plant in Longbridge, England. The final production version of the MG6 was revealed yesterday at the 2009 Guangzhou Auto Show and is really the first glimpse we have seen of it since the prototype debut at the 2009 Shanghai Auto Show. The production model is supposed to roll our initially to Chinese automotive market initially with those cars being manufactured in China. Then in late 2010 the U.K. plant is supposed to ramp up to supply Europe.
No plans have been announced for the U.S. market, which isn’t really a surprise since they don’t really have a point of entry at the moment. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if that changes in the future and we start to see MGs on U.S. streets again.
